Representation 9528 on Examination Consultation Provision for Gypsies and Travellers by Mr & Mrs Ian & Dawn Hart

Support / Object: OBJECT
Document Link: Examination Consultation Provision for Gypsies and Travellers - Main Matter 15 - Whether or not the plan would make appropriate provision for gypsy and traveller accommodation over the plan period having regard to the evidence of need and proposed sites?, Issue - Whether or not the proposed sites identified for gypsy and traveller accommodation would be soundly based in terms of their location and site specific impacts, Site GT/06 - Greenway, Wingerworth, Question 25
Representation: Access to the proposed site - the only suitable access to the site would have to be from the main A61 Derby Road. We would stress that if you pursue the plans to situate the site on this piece of land you would be putting even greater strain on the already congested A61 Derby Road. The proposed site is situated at the bottom of a steep hill with a bad bend at the bottom. There is already a junction for the new Bellway Housing Development being created, which is directly opposite the proposed Gypsy/Traveller site. The road is treacherous in winter and to add another junction to this stretch of road would be dangerous.

Loss of green space - this speaks for itself, we cannot keep losing our green spaces.

Disruption and noise nuisance - the proposed site has several houses situated close by.
At examination: Written representation

Original submission

Regarding the proposed site for a Gypsy/Travellers on the corner of land adjacent to the A61 and Greenway, please find below concerns raised by us if you are considering this piece of land for the site:

* Access to the proposed site - the only suitable access to the site would have to be from the main A61 Derby Road. We would stress that if you pursue the plans to situate the site on this piece of land you would be putting even greater strain on the already congested A61 Derby Road. The proposed site is situated at the bottom of a steep hill with a bad bend at the bottom. There is already a junction for the new Bellway Housing Development being created, which is directly opposite the proposed Gypsy/Traveller site. The road is treacherous in winter and to add another junction to this stretch of road would be dangerous.
* Loss of green space - this speaks for itself, we cannot keep losing our green spaces.
* Disruption and noise nuisance - the proposed site has several houses situated close by.
