   Proposed development off Kedleston Road - update 3    July 29, 2014

From Dr Paul Hodson, Chair, Quarndon Parish Council planning subcommittee 29.07.14

At the Parish Council meeting last night we discussed an alarming new development regarding the Kedleston Road site. A full meeting of AVBC (Amber Valley Borough Council) on Weds 23rd July passed a resolution put forward by its planning officers to designate this land as a potential strategic site for development and, subject to consultation, to then include it in its Core Strategy when it is resubmitted in the autumn. Public consultation by AVBC runs from yesterday to the 9th September, with a public meeting being held at Kedleston Park Golf Club on Tuesday 12th August from 15.00 to 19.00.

Your Council, last night, agreed to an action plan to handle issues around the future possible development of this site. The most pressing matter currently is to oppose this proposal by AV to nominate this site for future development in order to fulfil their need to provide more sites for extra housing for the Derby Housing Market Area (HMA)

We need your help to reverse this decision, so please;

Lastly, residents in the area have got together and the various groups have united to form Kedleston Voice, please do visit their website  www.kedlestonvoice.com
