4. Observations on Planning Applications
The planning authority has been informed of the date of this meeting and any delays in responses as they relate to all applications with response closing dates before the date of this meeting.
Application No: 19/3816M
Proposal: Reserved matters approval for matters of appearance, landscaping, layout and scale for the development of 30 dwellings together with associated open space, landscaping and infrastructure pursuant to outline planning permission 18/0294M.
Location: Land North Of, CHELFORD ROAD, MACCLESFIELD
RESOLVED: That the committee objects to this application on the grounds of:
- The site is within close proximity of the Broken Cross Air Quality Management Area (AQMA) and the development will lead to increased traffic volumes and therefore further exacerbate the poor air quality of that AQMA, contrary to the Cheshire East Air Quality Management Strategy;
- Lack of cycle and pedestrian routes within the development and between the development and town centre, contrary to the LPS Policy SC3;
- Increase of traffic on already congested highways with particular pressure on the development’s access and egress junction;
- Increased pressure on public services, e.g. buses, that have already been subject to cuts;
- Removal of trees and hedges that will result in the loss of wildlife habitat;
- Concerns on the risk of flooding in the development area once the hard standing has been completed;
- The application does not clearly meet the Local Plan policy requirements of LPS18 1., 2., 3. & 5.
Cllr Harewood wished it to be noted that she abstained from voting on this resolution.
Cllrs Wilson and Edwardes wished it to be noted that they have concerns on the increased pressure on school places and primary care as a result of this development.
The committee commented that they seek an up-to-date Traffic Management Plan for Macclesfield from Cheshire East Council.
