Below are the relevant paragraphs relating to each of the site allocations:

g. Land off Shakespeare Crescent & Sheffield Road, Dronfield

5.19 This site is located to the south east of Dronfield, is approximately 9.87 hectares in size and is expected to deliver approximately 235 dwellings. The majority is expected to be built within the first five years after adoption of the Local Plan. The site has a considerable sloping gradient down to Chesterfield Road, as well as a difference in levels between the site and the Highway. This would need to be given consideration in the layout and design of a development proposal. There are also trees protected by TPO No 7 along the north-western and western boundary of the site and in the southwest of the site. These would need to be retained within the layout of the development.
h. Land at Hallowes Lane, Dronfield

5.20 This site is located to the south of Dronfield, is approximately 10.05 hectares in size and is expected to deliver approximately 230 dwellings towards the end of the Plan Period. A development proposal for this site would need to show that the nearby highway network has sufficient capacity for this scale of development, or that improvement works can be carried out. The site may also have potential ecological constraints which would need to be assessed. Furthermore, the site partially lies within an area that has been defined by the Coal Authority as high risk, containing potential hazards arising from former coal mining activity. A Coal Mining Assessment would need to be carried out.
i. Land off Hilltop, Dronfield

5.21 This site is located to the south of Dronfield, is approximately 7.91 hectares in size and is expected to deliver approximately 190 dwellings. The majority is expected to be built within years 6 to 10 after adoption of the Local Plan. Options for the creation of suitable highway access need to be assessed. Furthermore, the site lies within an area that has been defined by the Coal Authority as high risk, containing potential hazards arising from former coal mining activity. A Coal Mining Assessment would need to be carried out.
j. Land north of Eckington Road, Coal Aston, Dronfield

5.22 This site is located to the north of Coal Aston, Dronfield, is approximately 14.39 hectares in size and is expected to deliver approximately 180 dwellings within the first five years after adoption of the Local Plan. The site includes sports grounds which are expected to be retained or provided at an alternative location, in line with policy Policy ID3: Open Space, Sports and Recreation Facilities. The site is located within the Moss Valley Conservation Area, and any impacts from the development proposal should be considered. Furthermore, the south and north-eastern part of the site lies within an area that has been defined by the Coal Authority as high risk, containing potential hazards arising from former coal mining activity. A Coal Mining Assessment would need to be carried out.
k. Land at Stubley Drive,Stubley Hollow, Dronfield

5.23 This site is located to the north of Dronfield, is approximately 1.76 hectares in size and is expected to deliver approximately 25 dwellings within the first five years after adoption of the Local Plan. Options for the creation of suitable highway access need to be assessed. The site may also have potential ecological constraints which would need to be assessed.

(N.B. Please note there is further land, of roughly equal size, to the east of this site which is also to be removed from the green belt, but with no indication of when it would be developed.)

 

Callywhite Lane Extension, Dronfield

6.23 This is a long-standing allocation from the 2005 Adopted Plan, the northern end of which has been partly developed. Despite lack of progress on this site it represents an important extension to a valuable industrial area in the North Sub-Area. Issues over access in particular need to be resolved but there is a likelihood that with the anticipated electrification of the East Midlands Main Line and (in the longer term) HS2, such issues will be resolved. The development of the site is limited by the presence of a Local Wildlife Site and flood risk issues so a net developable area of 6ha has been assumed in this draft Plan. Although at an early stage, a development brief for the site is being prepared, which aims to guide the future development of the site.
