This survey covers the villages of Hilton, Marston-on-Dove and Hoon. Anyone who lives in the 3 villages can complete this survey – even if you didn’t complete the one last summer.

The deadline for submissions is 17th March 2019.

In June/July 2018, 928 people completed our first survey which provided us with a lot of data on your views and preferences across a range of subjects. Some of that information has already been used successfully in identifying and agreeing Local Green Spaces and informing discussion on local traffic issues.

Since the summer we have drafted planning policies based on “What You Said”. They are listed in this document giving you an option to agree or disagree and comment.

More details on how we arrived at the policies can be found by clicking the photo, below, or by visiting the display at the Hilton Village Hall.

When finally agreed, these policies will form the Neighbourhood Development Plan which will sit alongside planning policies within South Derbyshire District Council. Combined, these will influence the development of our Neighbourhood Area for the next 15 years.

After the surveys have been completed, the results will be analysed. Further community consultations will take place and a draft Plan produced by the middle of the year.

The Neighbourhood Development Plan project is run by volunteer residents. The Plan looks at Housing, Education, Transport and Traffic, Environment, Shops and Amenities, Leisure and Business.

Many thanks and we look forward to hearing from you,

Lively meeting seeking solutions for Traffic issues on Main Street


Building on the Traffic Survey work undertaken as part of the Neighbourhood Development Plan, Julie Patten, Councillor ( Derbyshire County Council / South Derbyshire District Council) organised a meeting primarily focussed on the traffic issues on Main Street.  Around 50 people squeezed into the Village Hall room, shared experiences, and offered a variety of solutions. It closed after just under 2 hours but could have been much longer!

Richard Handbury from the County Council’s Highways department joined the meeting to hear first-hand the problems that residents were experiencing,  to answer questions, and comment on potential solutions.

Charles Cuddington from the Neighbourhood Development Plan team gave an overview presentation of the results from the Traffic Survey.  One of the main findings was that 3 times as much traffic goes through the village via Main Street, than round The Mease. The use of speed detectors gave us some substantial data on levels of speeding along Main Street, Derby Road, and The Mease, and bluetooth detectors gave an indication of relative journey times. Some of this data will be especially useful when addressing future planning applications.

The attendees added additional experiences around:

  • Inconsiderate parking – including using people’s private drives
  • Driving on the pavements to get round parked lorries
  • The ineffectiveness of the speed bumps.
  • Noisy lorry traffic in the very early mornings, and late at night.
  • Poor signage
  • Poor enforcement.

Although there seems to be a lot of legislation, and bureaucracy, which can undermine good ideas, the meeting identified a number of options which gained support from the residents, and which seemed to have merit from Richard’s perspective. Only more detailed planning would determine if they could, in fact, be implemented.

The challenge is to identify which permutation could both solve the problem and be implemented, practically.

  • Chicanes – issue around placement, and access to houses
  • Island at bottom of Sutton Lane – substantial structure, not a painted “bump”
  • Flashing signs – resident funded, possibly, as may not pass the Council threshold due to collision statistics
  • 20 MPH – speed limit – subject of Cabinet report
  • Weight restriction signs – more visible / bottom Sutton Lane ( gap in the area signage)
  • Stop buses going down Main Street – go round Mease
  • Blanking off the Hatton end of Uttoxeter Road – unanimous support from meeting
  • Review parking conditions of Planning Application of nursery ( Bunny Hops)
  • Bollards along a limited section of Main Street to stop people mounting the pavement.
  • Another pedestrian crossing on Main Street – near Old Talbot
  • Convert current crossing to either a pelican or puffin.

Enforcement is a key part of the solution and the audience were encouraged to report any problems to the Police as well as being active in the periodic Neighborhood Forums attended by the Police.

Next Steps

The 3rd hump, which has been in planning, for about 18 months, is being presented at the Cabinet Meeting, on 20th December 2018.  As the general view of the residents was that this would have little impact, Julie will be explaining to the Cabinet that more measures will be needed based on the output from this meeting.

A follow-up meeting will be arranged in the New Year to discuss progress.

Consultation stall at Hilton Primary School PTFA Xmas Fayre

20181201_134636

Charles Cuddington, along with Margaret, took the opportunity at the Hilton Primary school PTFA Xmas Fayre, to communicate our work on the Neighbourhood Plan, answering questions and informing people about progress.

The board shows one of our short term successes which is the increase in the number of Local Green Spaces from 9 to 18. This was helped by feedback during the survey process in June/July,  comments on Facebook during our engagement activity and talking to residents. This was particularly pleasing as, on average, across South Derbyshire, the number of LGS per village has reduced. Close working with South Derbyshire County Council Planning Dept on this has helped considerably.

Our survey has confirmed that the residents of Hilton see it as a high priority that available green spaces are preserved where they exist, and are always an important requirement of any new housing development.
