England | Peak District NP objects to plans for large new housing development nearby

Developer Patrick Properties is seeking planning permission for a “sustainable new community” of up to 300 homes in Loxley Valley around the site of a derelict refractory works once run by a company called Hepworth, which opponents say they fear will effectively become a new township.

The Peak District National Park, which is close to the planned site, has raised concerns about the potential for increased traffic and the development undermining the quality of the local green belt. Local MPs Olivia Blake and Gill Furniss have also objected to the plan.
