  • Cllr Janet Jackson MBE
  • Cllr David Edwardes
  • Cllr Fiona Wilson
  • Cllr Lloyd Roberts

Meeting adjournment for public comments.

There were no members of the public attending the meeting.

 


3. Minutes of the Planning Committee Meeting held on 15th January 2021

RESOLVED:        That the minutes are approved as a true record of the meeting.

 

4. Matters Arising from the Minutes

Cllr Wilson updated the committee on planning application 20/5442M – removal of condition 6 on approved application 17/4277M Outline application for the erection of up to 135 dwellings with access from Chelford Road and Whirley Road and associated open space.  The Planning Committee objected to this application at the meeting on 15/01/21.

Condition 6 states: Prior to the first occupation of any dwelling built as a result of the development hereby permitted, the Broken Cross highway improvements as shown on plan reference 1916-F04 Revision B shall be carried out to the full written satisfaction of the Local Planning Authority with Reason: To ensure the highway impact of the development is mitigated.

The associated planning application 19/3097M was considered at Cheshire East Council’s Strategic Planning Board (SPB) meeting on 27/01/21 and Cllr Wilson had spoken against the application at the meeting on behalf of the Town Council.

The SPB resolved to defer a decision on 19/3097M, in part due to traffic management and air quality in the area and housing design. The second application for the site, 19/3098M, was then withdrawn from the agenda by the planning officer on the basis that it was also likely to be deferred.

Cllr Wilson reported that application 20/5442M is being dealt with separately from the development applications 19/3097M and 19/3098M.

 

RESOLVED:        That Macclesfield Town Council writes to the relevant Cheshire East Council planning officer seeking that the traffic management issues relating to 19/3097M, 19/3098M 20/5442M are considered together to enable the Strategic Planning Board to make an informed decision.
