2018 GROUP REPRESENTATION
The 2018 Group Representation was collated following discussions between Dronfield Green Belt group members via Facebook, email, research group meetings and our four drop-in sessions. The full statement, containing evidence and references for our viewpoint, can be viewed here.
This is the introductory statement of objection from within the 59 page group representation:
Dronfield Green Belt Residents’ Group objects to The NEDDC Local Plan with respect to 1275 houses proposed on six Green Belt sites in Dronfield, Coal Aston, Eckington and Killamarsh. The Local Plan is not sound and not legally compliant with respect to these proposals for two principal reasons:
- Exceptional Circumstances for the release of Green Belt land in North East Derbyshire for the purposes of house building do not exist.
- These Green Belt sites are in poorly sustainable locations when compared to reasonable alternatives.
