Representation 9641 on Examination Consultation Provision for Gypsies and Travellers by Ms. Emily Briddock

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: Summary by Officer.

Turning onto derby road is already a dangerous task let alone adding another access point into the mix by building the site.

The road is always busy and the proposed entrance would be on a bend making it very dangerous. NEDDC have already said they no longer want the site used for this purpose.

The site is currently used a short cut to derby road when walking to school and I wouldn't feel safe doing this if it was to go ahead. The site is well-used. The field floods in places so wouldn't be suitable and there are properties that overlook the field which surely is a breach of privacy to both parties. Not to mention the new housing development been built opposite! I am strongly against these plans.

Original submission

I am writing to express my views on the proposed site. I live on Greenway and I am absolute appalled that this site has even been considered. Turning onto derby road is already a dangerous task let alone adding another access point into the mix by building the site. The road is always busy and the proposed entrance would be on a bend making it very dangerous! NEDDC have already said they no longer want the site used for this purpose. The site is currently used a short cut to derby road when walking to school and I wouldn't feel safe doing this if it was to go ahead. Also when family members come to visit they walk their dog around the very small green space. With all the houses currently been built there is less and less green space for my daughter to play on. It had also come to light that the field actually floods in places so wouldn't be suitable and there are properties that over look the field which surely is a breach of privacy to both parties. Not to mention the new housing development been built opposite! On the whole I am strongly AGAINST these plans and I'm shocked it was even considered given its location.
