McCarthy Stone 2

Wednesday March 7th

These are the details of item 7 on the Agenda of the Cheshire East Southern Planning Committee which meets this Wednesday:-

"17/5776N Land to North of Little Heath Barns, Audlem: Erection of Retirement Living housing (category ll type accommodation), communal facilities, landscaping and car parking (re-submission following non-determination of application 17/0339N) for McCarthy & Stone Retirement Lifestyles."


Taken from the summary provided to Councillors (full document can be seen here)

The scheme will provide up to £305,000 towards identified planning obligations, as set out in this report. Whilst there is a shortfall of what is required to fully meet the contributions in lieu of on-site affordable housing, the applicant has agreed to provide the amount requested by the Council following an independent viability appraisal.

As a result it is considered that it has been demonstrated that the proposal complies with the exception noted in Policy CS5 which requires any shortfall in the required contribution to be fully evidenced by a viability report which has been independently assessed.

The development would have a neutral impact upon protected species/ecology, flooding, living conditions, landscape, trees, design and contaminated land.

Applying the tests within paragraph 14 it is considered that the benefits outweigh the adverse impacts. As such, on balance, it is considered that the development constitutes sustainable development and should therefore be approved.


APPROVE subject to conditions and the completion of a s106 legal agreement
