Key Planning Applications at Parish Council

Back home  /  News  /  Key Planning Applications at PC

At last night's Council meeting some fifteen planning applications were considered or noted as having a decision made. However two major applications were considered as follows:

16/0725N Land at Moorsfield Avenue, Audlem – 87 Dwellings

Councillors Heather Jones, Geoff and Pam Seddon, and Ceri Parsons declared an interest and were unable to take part in the debate. Clerk to the Council Kirstin Dixon led the discussion

When it came to voting on the planning application for Moorsfield Avenue/ Tollgate Drive, of the 8 councillors eligible to vote, 7 voted to object to the application with one councillor abstaining. The motion objected to the application on planning grounds, including those laid down in the Neighbourhood Plan. The meeting was then formally closed so that the views of residents could be heard.

They were informed that a residents' association had been formed and had canvassed all the residents living on nearby roads. Nobody had said they were in favour of the plan and some 60 residents were on a mailing list looking at reasons for objection to this application.

The objections arising from the Neighbourhood Plan were that the village has exceeded its housing targets already, the housing was outside the village settlement boundary and that the size of the development was too large.

There were also concerns about the general infrastructure , sewerage, extra road traffic and access on minor roads, secondary and primary school capacity, and the medical centre being unable to cope with extra patients. It was also stated that a large urban type structures would be built in an area including wildlife habitat with no public access.

The Parish Council meeting was then re-opened to carry on with the remaining business.

16/1131N Land at Little Heath – Landscaping and design of 120 dwellings

This application had previousy been granted by the Planning Inspectors following appeal.
Councillors agreed that representation would be made to Cheshire East Planning Board expressing major concerns over several aspects of the proposed design on this site namely:

  • Run off water treatment appears inadequate
  • Underground LPG tank a potential hazard
  • Parking per house inadequate
  • Wheelie bin access at affordable housing blocks appears inadequate
  • landscaping maintenance arrangements unclear for the longer term
