Nooo cheese factory development

Proposals to redevelop a former cheese factory site at Hartington have been unanimously turned down by the Peak District National Park planning committee.

The scheme from developers Cathelco of Chesterfield included 39 houses – 33 three-to-five-bedroomed houses for the open market and six affordable homes – plus business units, a recreation area including sports pitch and children’s playground, allotments and a car park.

The committee heard from 24 speakers, 22 of them objecting to the scheme. After hearing all the representations and discussing the evidence members refused it on the grounds that its scale would be out of keeping with the village and damaging to the landscape and character of Hartington.
