Council disappointed with Inspector’s Ruling on Kedleston Road Plans

Proposals for up to 400 new homes at Kedleston Road, Quarndon, are set to go ahead, following the decision of an Inspector to grant outline planning permission, following a recent public inquiry.

The Inspector concluded that the harm that would be caused by the proposals to the significance of Kedleston Hall would be less than substantial to the point of being negligible and there would be no harm at all to the significance of either the listed Kedleston Hotel or the designated Quarndon Conservation Area.

Cllr Trevor Ainsworth, Amber Valley Borough Council’s Deputy Leader and Cabinet Member for Regeneration, said: “The Inspector’s decision to grant outline planning permission for this development is obviously very disappointing. The Council’s Planning Board gave very careful consideration to the proposals before deciding, on balance, to refuse planning permission, given the concerns of Historic England and others regarding the impact of the proposals on the Grade 1 Listed Kedleston Hall, its Grade 1 Registered Park & Garden and on Kedleston Conservation Area. I know local residents will be very upset and frustrated with this decision.

“The Council will now turn its attention to ensuring that details of the development, which will have to be submitted and approved by the Planning Board before any development can take place, will deliver the full range of infrastructure and other benefits promised by the applicant, Catesby Estates.”
