Mansfield District Council said Lee O’Connor appealed after the council refused outline planning for the development at Gregory Quarry. The land is close to the town centre and would have had access off Quarry Lane. Mr O’Connor's family had operated the site when it was a working stone quarry, A four-day inquiry took place in April at Mansfield Civic Centre where Siobhan Watson, from the government Planning Inspectorate, heard evidence for and against the plans. Her 10-page decision concluded: "Whilst there are some benefits to the scheme, including the provision of market and affordable housing, these do not outweigh the cumulative harm I have found. "The loss of the GI [Green Infrastructure], whatever type of habitat existed, and the harm to LG [Local Greenspace] and COS [Community Open Space] are sufficient to make the scheme unacceptable even without the additional biodiversity harm. "The proposal therefore conflicts with the development plan as a whole and does not represent sustainable development." The council said the inspector heard the development might also have had an impact on the biodiversity of an “important area of peaceful habitat” supporting, among other species, rare bats. Seven bat species were spotted, including the rare Leisler’s bat and the serotine species, which is rare in Nottinghamshire and, the council said, has only been recorded five times in 15 years. The council said the Inspector decided it would also have detracted from the quality of local green spaces – namely Quarry Lane Local Nature Reserve – which her report said provided a unique place for school trips and family outings within a heavily built-up area. Coun Stuart Richardson, Mansfield District Council’s portfolio holder for regeneration and growth, said: "We are pleased that this decision has recognised the importance and value of retaining areas of green space within an urban environment. "Even though this quarry is not open to the public, it still represents a valuable natural asset in this part of Mansfield and its continued presence also enhances the quality of local green and open spaces around it. "Yes, we need more houses - like everywhere in England - but this should not be at any cost. Green corridors are also an important feature of any urban landscape." Read More Related Articles
