CAMPAIGNERS battling against plans for up to 400 homes on the edge of Derby have been buoyed by parish councils joining their fight.
News of Weston Underwood and Quarndon parish councils' objections to the proposal comes as protesters put dozens of house-shaped signs in their front gardens to highlight their concerns.
Catesby Estates has applied to Amber Valley Borough Council to build the homes on fields off Kedleston Road, Allestree.
Campaign group Kedleston Voice believes building on the land will cause flooding and traffic problems, as well as affecting the setting of historic Kedleston Hall.
They have official support from the two parish councils who have now made official objections to the borough council.
Quarndon Parish Council said the homes would result in extra traffic causing a "major safety hazard".
It said: "There is no access for traffic from Kedleston Road wishing to travel northwards on to either the A6 or the A38, without 'rat runs' through Allestree or Quarndon.
"The majority of roads in Quarndon have no footway.
"The extra traffic thus generated would therefore pose a major safety hazard."
The Weston Underwood Parish Council statement raised concerns about how the beauty and setting of Kedleston Hall would be "irreparably harmed".
It said: "Mitigation cannot be realistically achieved as the harm is caused by the transformation of agricultural land to housing."
The house signs, funded by Kedleston Voice, have been put up at 40 properties around the site and more than 4,300 people have signed a petition against the proposal.
Group member Isobel Shorrock, of Quarndon, said the signs showed objections were still strong while the borough council's planning decision is awaited, which is expected by the end of April.
Among those who have set up a sign was Clifford Dobson, 81, of Kedleston Road.
He said: "We need affordable homes but some of these will be very large, in the £500,000 market."
