Extracts from Rotherham Metropolitan Borough Council Local Plan Sites and Policies Examination:

3. E16 Todwick North, North East of A57. MM. Delete allocation and retain area in the Green Belt. Reason. This site, together with other areas of land around Todwick, makes a significant contribution to preventing the neighbouring settlement groupings of Dinnington/ Anston/Laughton Common and Wales/Kiveton Park from merging into one another. Furthermore development of this extensive area of farmland would constitute encroachment into the countryside and cause severe damage to the attractive rural character of the local area. Consequently the allocation is not justified and is not consistent with national policy.

Todwick

1. H84 Land to the west of Kiveton Lane. MM. Delete allocation and retain area in the Green Belt. Reason. This site, together with other areas of land around Todwick, makes a significant contribution to preventing the neighbouring settlement groupings of Dinnington/ Anston/Laughton Common and Wales/Kiveton Park from merging into one another. Furthermore the site is poorly related to the existing built form of the village, would constitute encroachment into the countryside, and would cause significant harm to the attractive rural character of the local area. Consequently the allocation is not justified and would be contrary to national planning policy.
