We consulted residents, businesses and interested parties on potential Gypsy and Traveller sites in the borough.  

The consultation ran for six weeks from Monday 12 February to Monday 26 March 2018.

The results of the consultation and recommendations for the next steps were reported to the council's cabinet on Tuesday 15 May 2018.

The cabinet papers are available here.

The results of the consultation and recommendations for the next steps were reported to the council's cabinet on Tuesday 15 May 2018.

Cabinet decided that:

  • the potential sites at Miller Avenue, Brooks Road, Bevan Drive, Birchwood Crescent, Keswick Drive and Atlee Road will not be included in the next version of the Chesterfield Borough Local Plan.
  • the site at Hady Lane with existing planning permission for two pitches will be included in the next version of the Chesterfield Borough Local Plan as an allocation specifically for the purpose of gypsy and traveller pitches
  • the new site that was proposed at the corner of Whittington Road and Staveley Road should be assessed to see if it is suitable and, if appropriate, include it as an allocation in the next version of the Chesterfield Borough Local Plan

The results of the assessment of the new site will be published here when they are available.
