A developer has launched an appeal after an application to build 14 homes in open countryside just outside of the Chesterfield settlement boundary was rejected. Faith Homes Ltd made the appeal over the decision by North East Derbyshire District Council to reject its application for the development of 14 four-bedroomed homes and garaging on the land northwest of Mile Hill House, Mansfield Road, Mile Hill, Hasland.

At the time, the authority gave three reasons for this – the first that it was on land outside the settlement boundary that was not allocated for housing, the second that the proposed homes were ‘at odds’ with the character of the area and the third that insufficient assessment of the grassland had been undertaken.

Among its stated grounds for appeal, Faith Homes Ltd claims two similar housing applications for the land have previously been permitted – one for 15 homes and another for ten homes.

The developer argues that proposed new planting and landscaping would ensure the development was not a ‘prominent feature on the wider landscape’ and states a grassland survey is currently being carried out, as required.
