Muller does a Gladman in Stapeley

Housing developer Muller Property has submitted a duplicate application to build 189 houses in Stapeley, south of Nantwich.

The company is following the same course at Gladman in Audlem by submitting a duplicate application while its original proposal goes to appeal.

Muller plans to develop a 1,100-home village south of Nantwich on land between Audlem Road, London Road and Peter De Stapleigh Way.

The plans have met strong opposition from residents who fear schools and other services cannot cope with such a large development.

But the failure of Cheshire East to convince the government that its emerging Local Plan has a five year housing supply is a severe setback for campaigners.

Pat Cullen of the ProtectStapeley campaign said: "This is yet another example of how the cards are all stacked in favour of developers."

The twin submission tactic means developers can continue to make minor adjustments to alternative plans even while the original scheme is under appeal.

If the developer wins the appeal they can withdraw the duplicate application. If they lose the appeal they can press on with the second application which will then include revisions that make it less likely to be rejected.
