Moorsfield/Tollgate proposed development:

The Parish Council is delighted to report that at the Southern Planning Committee held on Wednesday 26 April Councillors voted unamimously to refuse application 17/0774N- outline planning permission for up to 34 dwellings at Land at Moorsfield Avenue, Audlem.

This was on the grounds that:
1. The proposal involves the development of a parcel of countryside outside the settlement boundary for Audlem as definied in the Audlem Neighbourhood Plan 2016.
It also involves development within the Open Countryside as set out in the Borough of Crewe & Nantwich Replacement Local Plan. As a result the proposal is not listed as an appropriate form of development within the countryside and would erode the rural character of the countryside, and would undermine the ability of the community to shape and direct sustainable development in their area, contrary to Audlem Neighbourhood Plan policies H1 and H3, Borough of Crewe & Nantwich Replacement Local Plan Policies NE,2 and RES.5, Cheshire East Local Plan Strategy Policy PG5 and the advice of NPPF paragraphs
17, 183-195 and 198. These conflicts are considered to significantly and demonstrably outweigh the benefits of the proposal.

2. The proposed development would have an adverse impact on the setting of the Audlem Conservation Area and on the setting of the Shropshire Union Canal. The proposal is therefore contrary to Audlem Neighbourhood Plan Policy D1, Borough of Crewe & Nantwich Replacement Local Plan Policy BE7 and the advice of NPPF paragraphss 17, 131-133,1 35, 183-185 and 198. These conflicts are considered to significantly and demonstrably outweigh the benefits of the proposal.

Conditions were imposed.
A copy of the Decision Notice will be put on AOL when it is published.

Audlem Parish Clerk
