The Sites already allocated, Hallam and Perssimon need to be properly joined up with these proposed allocations in order for a coherent development to be formed that can principally be served from the large Arnolds Way roundabout. All sites need to be joined to the Multi-use pathways proposed along both sides of Northend. The above needs to be achieved by agreement and conditioned so that all talk of “ransom strips” is avoided.

The descriptions below need to be read with the relevant plans. Landowner approval has been gained for the proposals apart from path routes shown dotted and these will be consulted on over the coming weeks.

Site “A” YRFC

 6 acres of soon to be redundant sports field and club house, with housing or pp for housing on 3 sides.

The Rugby club has to move to a new site (opposite Bridge Inn, proposed). The current site will be redundant for sports purposes. The move has been forced by loss of Junior pitches to the Perssimon allocated site to the east and the Redrow site at Oxford Instruments to the south. These 2 housing allocations have deprived the Club of its Car Parking and Junior section playing fields. The current site if allocated, will realise sufficient funds to carry out the relocation. (Around 85 dwellings).

The site borders land to the North that can be made available as “Access Land” i.e the public can walk their dogs etc, but the land will still be farmed and no cost will accrue to third parties for its upkeep. Some form of storm water attenuation pond can also be included in this ground. Also within this land is a 5 acre field of raised ground which could accommodate a formal play area for all the proposed housing on this side of Northend Road.

The site is adjoined by the proposed North side Multi Use Pathway, which will safely connect all residential areas along this side of Northend Road, to the Station and Village at one end and the Sports Ground, Community facilities, café and shops, at the other.
