The current draft Master Plan will result in roads cutting through the heart of parkland and a loss of green space, grazing and water meadows

—ECAG believes that this is contrary to the vision and guiding principles of DCC.

For example the South Derbyshire DC Local Plan 2011-2018 (part 2) has the following targets:

— Policy BNE2 Heritage Assets – Target: no overall loss

— Policy BNE3 Biodiversity – Target: no net loss of BAP habitats due to planning applications

— Policy BNE10 Heritage – development leading to substantial harm to or loss of designated heritage asset will be refused
