INTRODUCTION Planning for Places In a previous consultation ‘Your Neighbourhood: Talk To Us’, the District was divided into 11 areas which have been carried forward from that consultation through and into this Draft Local Plan. Each of the 11 areas contains a brief description of the area, sets out a vision and objectives and gives a summary of the Draft Local Plan policies that relate to each area. An A3 map has been produced to illustrate the proposed policies, in particular the locations of proposed strategic employment and housing sites. For individual maps showing the locations of the proposed strategic housing sites, please see Chapter 5.

HILTON AREA Description This is a rural area containing a large key settlement, Hilton, and several other smaller villages, including Church Broughton and Scropton. The A50 trunk road, Derby – Crewe railway line and River Dove pass through the area. Hilton has experienced substantial growth over the last two decades and is now the second largest settlement in South Derbyshire. Although the village plays host to a number of community facilities, including a village hall and some retail provision, the extent of these amenities has not matched the scale of residential expansion. The Hilton primary school and John Port Academy at Etwall, which serves the area, have both been extended to a considerable degree but offer little spare capacity. Hilton Business Park seeks to balance the housing growth with employment provision and has been partly redeveloped to provide business units of varying sizes. The remainder of the site is largely used for storage and distribution purposes and is being made available for further redevelopment to meet the needs of modern business occupiers. Dove Valley Business Park, at Foston, has been successful in attracting industrial and warehouse occupiers, largely as a consequence of providing direct access to the A50. Plots remain available and land to the north offers the potential to accommodate large-scale end users when suitable sites cannot be found elsewhere in the district. The remaining settlements in the area are generally too small to support many services and facilities and are also poorly served by public transport, although efforts have been made to address this in recent years through the introduction of a twice-weekly demand responsive bus service. The accommodating planning policy stance on farm diversification has enabled the provision of small scale business accommodation at a number of sites. A multi-user greenway connects Hilton to Etwall and Mickleover, whilst a further cycle route connects Marston-on-Dove to Hatton. There is a need for the provision of formal lorry parking and overnight facilities in the area and planning consent has accordingly been granted for such development at a site in Foston. There is also a need to upgrade some local infrastructure in order to support new development and meet the needs of local residents, including improved electricity and broadband capacity. The area contains a Site of Special Scientific Interest at Hilton Gravel Pits.

HATTON AREA Description The Hatton area covers just the settlement of Hatton itself and is the smallest area that we have identified. Hatton is a key service village surrounded by a rural setting. Facilities include a primary school, post office and local store. The adjacent village of Tutbury, in East Staffordshire, also offers many services and facilities. The major employer in the village is Nestle, whose premises are undergoing major expansion, whilst the nearby Station Yard industrial estate accommodates a number of small to medium sized businesses. Hatton is served by a railway station, which offers regular services in the directions of Derby and Crewe. A multi-user trail connects the village to the nearby settlement of Marston on Dove. There is local concern about the number of lorries using Station Road (A511) which is the main route through the village. Hatton has its own Primary School, Heath Fields and falls within the John Port Academy, Etwall normal area for secondary education, which currently offers little spare capacity in terms of student numbers. The River Dove passes along the southern boundary of the village and, as a consequence, the area is susceptible to flooding. To address this, existing flood alleviation infrastructure is being upgraded.

ETWALL AREA Description This predominantly rural area contains the Key Village of Etwall, a number of other smaller settlements and suburban development on the Derby fringe. The A38 passes to the east whilst the A50 and the Derby-Crewe railway line cross through the area which offers important transport infrastructure for the area. The River Dove passes through the southern part of the area, which has high flooding potential, although alleviation measures are currently being upgraded. John Port Academy is a secondary school that is within the village and serves the wider surrounding area. The school is the largest school in Derbyshire and currently offers little spare capacity in terms of student numbers. Among the other facilities in the village are a leisure centre and library. Toyota’s UK assembly plant is situated at the A38/A50 junction which is the largest employer in the Etwall area. There is also a warehouse and distribution site within the areas. The presence of strategic transport infrastructure in the area has attracted significant interest from potential business investors. The area has seen new residential development over the past decade at the former Pastures Hospital site in Mickleover. A number of cycle routes pass through the area including the Hilton to Mickleover multi-user greenway, National Cycle Route 53 and the Pennine Cycleway. There are three conservation areas within the area at Etwall, Thurvaston and the length of the Trent and Mersey Canal. Radbourne Hall, set in the very much rural landscape to the northern part of the area, is a Grade 1 Listed Building. Settlements in the rural north of the area are generally too small to support many services and facilities and are also poorly served by public transport, although a twice-weekly demand responsive bus service serves the area.

WILLINGTON AREA Description The area is rural in character and contains the two key service villages of Willington and Findern. The A38 defines the western boundary, whilst the northern area borders the suburbs of Derby. The A50 crosses the area, with a multi-tier junction and roadside service area where it meets the A38. The Derby-Birmingham railway line passes through, connecting to the Derby-Crewe line and Donington freight line. Willington benefits from the presence of a railway station, although services are relatively infrequent. The Trent and Mersey canal, a conservation area, connects to the Mercia Marina, the largest inland marina in the country when first built. Part of the village of Willington is vulnerable to flooding from the River Trent, which represents the southern boundary of the area. Former gravel workings lie to the south west of Willington. The most prominent features in the landscape are the former Willington Power Station cooling towers, which will be removed when a new gas fired power station is developed on the site.

STENSON AREA Description The area predominantly rural in character, but also includes suburban development on the fringe of Derby at Sinfin. The A50 crosses the area to the south of Sinfin, whilst the Birmingham-Derby passenger railway line passes to the west and the Donington freight railway line passes from west to east. The Trent and Mersey Canal, a conservation area, also passes through the area, the pub and marina at Stenson Bubble being a popular local destination. A further conservation area has been designated at the small village of Twyford. The southern boundary of the area is largely defined by the River Trent. The residential area at Sinfin is served by frequent bus services to Derby City Centre and local shopping services and facilities are available at the district centre, just within the city boundary. The main route into Derby is Stenson Road, which experiences congestion at peak times, particularly at the signal-controlled railway bridge. On the fringe of Sinfin, a new strategic housing development is currently under construction.

ASTON AREA Overview The area has a predominantly rural feel to it though the area does adjoin Derby City along its northern boundary. The A50 trunk road crosses the area from east to west, with a spur heading northwards toward the A6 and A52. The southern boundary of the area is defined by the River Trent and much of the area around the Trent is susceptible to flooding. A large proportion of the north east part of the area forms the southern boundary of the Nottingham-Derby Green Belt. The area contains the key village of Shardlow and a number of other small settlements. Aston area contains various heritage assets including conservation areas at Shardlow, Aston-on-Trent, Barrow-on-Trent and along the length of the Trent and Mersey Canal. The route of the former Derby Canal, now a local wildlife site, extends northwards from Swarkestone into the city. There are also historic parks and gardens at Swarkestone and Elvaston. Swarkestone Causeway, which extends southwards across the Trent floodplain, represents a scheduled Ancient Monument and follows an alignment not suited to the volume and mix of traffic using it. A proposal to address this issue is included on a list of potential schemes for further assessment in the Derbyshire Local Transport Plan. The area is within reach of business and industrial areas in Derby City and within Leicestershire, such as East Midlands Airport and the East Midlands Distribution Centre. To a large extent, the area is reliant on retail and other services and facilities in Derby and other settlements outside the area. National Cycle Route 6 passes through the area, connecting to the network of cycle routes within Derby City.

MELBOURNE AREA Overview The area is rural in character, containing the Key Service Village of Melbourne and a number of smaller settlements. It contains many heritage assets including numerous listed buildings, conservation areas at Melbourne and Stanton by Bridge and a historic park and garden at Melbourne Hall. The area lies partly within the National Forest and also contains the Staunton Harold Reservoir. Melbourne contains the second most important shopping centre in the district and a small industrial estate. The area is also attractive to tourists. Close by, but beyond the South Derbyshire boundary, lays the important employment sites of East Midlands Airport and the East Midlands Distribution Centre. The A514 connects Melbourne to Derby via the Swarkestone Causeway, a scheduled Ancient Monument that follows an alignment not suited to the volume and mix of traffic using it. Options have been considered for the development of an alternative route and the Derbyshire Local Transport Plan includes the proposal on a list of potential major schemes for further assessment. National Cycle Route 6 runs to the north east of Melbourne connecting to Derby and rural Leicestershire.

REPTON AREA Overview The area is rural in character, containing the Key Service Village of Repton and several smaller villages. The River Trent, with its broad floodplain forms the northern boundary of the area. The settlements in the area are predominantly residential in character with few established business premises. New development has been relatively limited over recent decades. Within Repton village, Repton School, with its many buildings and playing fields, is a prominent physical presence. The smaller villages support few services and facilities and Smisby, Ingleby and Milton are not served by public transport. The area is notable for its concentration of heritage assets including numerous listed buildings, six conservation areas at Newton Solney, Repton, Bretby, Ticknall, Milton and Smisby and two historic parks and gardens at Bretby Hall and Calke Abbey. The latter, a National Trust property, represents a significant tourist destination. The southern part of the area lies within the National Forest. Part of the countryside to the south of Bretby falls within the area of Green Belt separating Swadlincote from Burton-on-Trent.

WOODVILLE AREA Overview This area comprises Woodville, which forms part of the Swadlincote urban area, and the predominantly rural area to the north and east, containing the villages of Hartshorne, a local service village and Boundary. Historically, the urban area was important for mining and ceramics manufacture, which were later joined by other industries, including engineering and distribution. Mining in the area ceased some time ago, whilst ceramics manufacturing continued until very recently. Many industrial sites have been lost to housing development over the past decade, whilst others have become vacant. Recent housing growth has been significant, mainly concentrated in and around the Woodville Woodlands area to the south of the urban area. The area falls entirely within the National Forest and part of Woodville lies within the Heart of the Forest, whose aims are to become a major tourist and leisure destination as part of the National Forest economy. Woodville itself contains some local facilities, but has a strong functional relationship with Swadlincote and the employment, shopping, services and other facilities available there. There are also the nearby towns of Ashby de la Zouch and Burton-on-Trent which offer additional facilities and services. The A511/A514 Clock roundabout junction experiences peak time congestion, causing trip delays and harming the local amenity. Undeveloped land to the south of Woodville provides a regeneration opportunity to be facilitated through the provision a link road that would provide some relief to Clock roundabout whilst opening up a substantial area of land for employment led development. The site adjoins the North West Leicestershire boundary and the Council will consider any growth proposals in consultation with the neighbouring local authority. The village of Hartshorne contains facilities such as a primary school and village hall. It has seen some small scale housing growth in recent years through the redevelopment of brownfield land. Parking outside the school on the main road in Hartshorne causes some local traffic disruption. The area contains some listed buildings, such as the Clock Garage and the kilns at the former TG Green pottery.

SWADLINCOTE AREA Overview Swadlincote is South Derbyshire’s principal administrative and commercial centre. Although historically important for mining and ceramics manufacture, these activities have been superseded by other industries including engineering, retail and logistics. In recent decades the town has experienced substantial development, led by a planning strategy that has sought to encourage growth in order to support the viability of local services and facilities. Most recent housing development has been concentrated at Castleton Park in Church Gresley and at Woodville Woodlands, whilst employment growth has mainly taken place at Tetron Point. Swadlincote provides for most of the day-to-day needs of local residents, although it has some functional ties to Burton-on-Trent, for example, in regard to further education and health care. The town centre, a designated Conservation Area, has attracted substantial private and public sector investment in recent years, co-ordinated through the recently reviewed “Swadlincote Town Centre Vision and Strategy”. Swadlincote is surrounded by countryside and the area separating the town from Burton-on-Trent represents designated Green Belt. There has been significant environmental enhancement in the town, much of which has resulted from the creation of new areas of woodland with public access, reflecting the town’s location within The National Forest. However, the cessation of mining in the South Derbyshire Coalfield has led to a rise in groundwater levels which, without appropriate management and treatment, could contaminate local watercourses. The southern part of the town lies within the Heart of The National Forest area, which is becoming a major tourist and leisure destination as part of the forest economy. The town is not particularly well connected to the wider highway network although the planned Regeneration Route would go some way toward addressing this.

201

31


Swadlincote Area - Number of dwellings and residents in 2001 and 2011

Vision Swadlincote will continue to expand to cater for the needs of South Derbyshire’s growing population and cement the role of the town as the focus of employment, retail, services and facilities within the district. This will be achieved through new development within and around the town, continued environmental enhancement driven by the town’s location within The National Forest and improved transport connections. Objective 1:

Meet the housing needs of the area through new development.

Objective 2:

Improve the environmental quality of the urban area, taking advantage of The National Forest location.

Objective 3:

Provide for the employment needs of the urban area .

Objective 4:

Improve the diversity and scale of the retail and leisure offer within Swadlincote Town Centre.

Objective 5:

Improve access to leisure, recreation and tourism opportunities, taking advantage of the presence of The National Forest and the location of part of the urban area within the Heart of The Forest.

Objective 6:

Secure improved access to Swadlincote by providing better connections to the wider highway network (see also Woodville).

202

32


Objective 7:

Improve accessibility by sustainable transport modes both within Swadlincote and to the wider urban and rural areas beyond.

Objective 8:

Protect heritage assets.

Objective 9:

Maintain the physical separation of Swadlincote and Burton-on-Trent.

SOUTHERN VILLAGES AREA Overview The area is rural in character and contains Key Service Villages, Overseal and Rosliston, and several other settlements of varying sizes. A large part of the area to the east represents former coalfield communities. The area lies entirely within the National Forest, the eastern most part being within the Heart of the Forest area, and contains tourist attractions including Rosliston Forestry Centre and Catton Hall. The northern part of the area lies within the South Derbyshire Green Belt. Part of the site of the former Drakelow Power Station has planning consent for mixed use development including housing and employment uses. Since road connections to the nearby A38 are poor, the redevelopment proposals will require the provision of a new bypass and River Trent crossing at Walton-on-Trent. Another part of the former power station site has planning consent for the development of a new gas fired power station. Apart from Castle Gresley, Linton and Overseal, the area is relatively poorly served by public transport and some settlements are too small to support any services and facilities. The Burton to Leicester railway line crosses the area and is used infrequently for freight purposes. There is a long standing aspiration to establish a passenger rail service on this line with a potential station at Castle Gresley, although this would not financially viable at the present time. There are Conservation Areas at Lullington, Netherseal and Walton-onTrent. A substantial part of the area lies within the River Mease catchment, where the need to protect ecological interests represents a significant development constraint. The western part of the area is bounded by the River Trent, and lies within the Central Rivers initiative area, which aims to secure multi-functional end-uses for former sand and gravel workings.
