Proposal: The demolition of existing buildings and the residential redevelopment of The King’s School Cumberland Street site to provide a mixture of conversion and new build dwellings and ‘Later Living’ apartments, with associated access, car parking, open space, landscaping and infrastructure

Location: KINGS SCHOOL, CUMBERLAND STREET, MACCLESFIELD, CHESHIRE, SK10 1DA

NOTE: Previously considered by this committee on 22/3/19. To be reconsidered by this committee following communications from the community and briefing by the developers.

A member briefing by the developers, Hillcrest Homes, was held on 4/6/19. It was commented that the below summarises the main points raised at that briefing:

  1. It is not clear if there will be sufficient parking on the development and it was conceded there would likely be some on-street parking;
  2. There will be two vehicular access points – Cumberland Street and Pownall Street (with the ambition to have a third vehicle access off Coare Street (yet to be considered and approved));
  3. The boundary wall and Cumberland Street gates will be retained;
  4. A footpath will be made with access from Cumberland Street into the grounds;
  5. The footpath adjacent to the Alms Houses will be retained and not altered;
  6. The housing facing Pownall Street is fronted by gardens of large detached houses, with bungalows behind/adjacent to the green;
  7. The cherry trees will be removed but other trees retained and further tree planting planned;
  8. The names on the war memorial plaque will be inscribed on the ha-ha wall.

The committee expressed support for the concerns previously expressed by the planning committee and additionally:

  1. Seeks assurance that existing trees will be retained including the cherry trees;
  2. Express concerns on the removal of the cricket pavilion as a war memorial;
  3. Requests the bat survey is undertaken before the commencement of demolition works;
  4. Seeks assurance that a Works Management Plan, with consideration to residents, is issued and agreed with Cheshire East Council detailing:

a. hours of work,

b. management of demolition and construction noise,

c. provision of parking for construction vehicles on the development site,

d. prohibiting on-street parking of construction vehicles in the neighbourhood.

Cllr Edwardes wished it to be noted that he has concerns on the volume of residential traffic in Macclesfield and seeks that a traffic survey is conducted prior to this development, particularly as the Traffic Management Plan is four years old.
