Representation 9731 on Examination Consultation Provision for Gypsies and Travellers by June Hancock

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: * The site has been considered unsuitable by the District Council owing accessibility problems.
* The only access to the site is from the A61. This presents a significant hazard to road users, pedestrians and potential site users.
* Utilising the land for semi-residential pitches would constitute both an infringement of privacy and noise nuisance both to those using the site and those neighbouring it.
* Consideration must be given to the relationship of proposed sites with the surrounding community. The established community has made it overwhelmingly clear that the proposed site sits too close to the established housing for any effective community cohesion to be established.
