Gladman 2 plan hearing put back

Home » Latest News » Gladman 2 plan hearing put back

Despite expectations that Cheshire East was to consider the Gladman 2 duplicate planning application to build up to 120 homes at Little Heath at a meeting on December 9th, we understand that it will now be January at the earliest before the council considers the application.

This means it will be heard outside the normal 13-weeks deadline meaning Gladman could go to appeal again on the grounds of non-determination as it did with the first Gladman application.

As reported on Thursday, the move follows alarm that the item had not been included on the agenda of the Strategic Planning Board meeting on December 4th. Now, with a further delay, suspicion will only mount about what the council intends.

The date of the appeal hearing on the first Gladman application has still to be set amid speculation about Cheshire East's resolve to contest planning appeals following the government's rejection of the council's housing land supply figures.

Meetings held behind closed doors have questioned if Cheshire East can now afford to fight a number of planning appeals on large housing schemes, but no announcement has yet been made about the Audlem applications.

The latest duplicate Gladman application, or Gladman 2 for ease of understanding, is primarily a technical move that allows the developer to make minor alteration to the plans while the original goes before an appeal Planning Inspector.
