|Proposed development off Kedleston Road - update 9 (Planning application AVA/2014/0928) October 29, 2014|
From Dr Paul Hodson, Chair, Quarndon Parish Council planning subcommittee 28.10.14
Well, the outline Planning Application for ‘up to 400 houses off Kedleston Road’ has now been submitted to AVBC by Catesby Estates Ltd., and the period for responses ‘given the scale and complexity of this application’ has been extended by the Borough Council to 7th December.
Two public exhibitions have been organised by the Borough Council to offer opportunities to view the details of the application and for you to ask any questions or to discuss any points about the application. Officers of the Borough Council will be present at both of the following public exhibitions:
Quarndon Village Hall, 122 Church Road, Quarndon – 4pm to 7pm on Tuesday 4th November 2014
The Parish Council has taken advice from a Planning Consultant and will be submitting a formal response opposing the application. However, we need you to make your views known to Amber Valley, any comments should be made by email or in writing, and must reach the Council by 7th December 2014 to be certain of being considered.
Responses should be submitted by post to: The Planning Department, Amber Valley Borough Council, Town Hall, Ripley, DE5 3XE, or by email to email@example.com
Please quote “AVA/2014/0928” on all of your correspondence.
Please note that any comments you may have made on the Council’s Core Strategy consultation in relation to this site cannot be taken into account in consideration of this planning application. You need to consider the planning application afresh and make your comments regarding this proposed development.
The Parish Council has produced a fact sheet to assist villagers in their response to the application and it will shortly be delivered to every household in Quarndon along with the Newsletter; I reproduce it below.
Parish Council Information Sheet for Quarndon residents regarding the outline planning application to build 400 houses off Kedleston Road
You may care to select points you consider most important.
Planning approval has recently been granted for the building of 530 houses off Radbourne Lane and 30 large houses off Memorial Road. The designation by AV of a further site off Radbourne Lane as suitable for development could mean this small sector of Amber Valley providing 1030 dwellings over the next couple of years. Given the accepted constraints to development in this area, it seems self-evident that a proposal to build hundreds of houses on land off Kedleston Road is unsustainable.
The constraints referred to include the infra-structure, the setting, the land and the environment
