  • MTC planning committee policy is to flag up the requirement for a sprinkler system in building of this nature.

Appeal

Application No:     19/3098M

Location:      Land between Chelford Road Henbury and Whirley Road Macclesfield Cheshire

Proposal:      Erection of 23no. dwellings, vehicular access, roads and footways, hard and soft landscaping, drainage and other associated works.

Comments due back by 2nd May 2022.

 

Resolved: The committee continues to object to this application for the following reasons:

 

  1. Incompatibility with Macclesfield Town Council and Cheshire East Council’s declaration of climate emergency; the development will lead to increased traffic volumes. 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.
  2. Lack of cycle and pedestrian routes between the development and town centre which is in incompatible with Macclesfield Town Council and Cheshire East Council’s declaration of a climate emergency and contrary to the LPS Policy SC3.

III.         The Broken Cross junction is a known bottleneck in and out of Macclesfield; congestion will be worsened by an increase in traffic from the development. Additionally, a traffic plan to ease the bottlenecks at this junction has yet to be published.

  1. Increased pressure on public transport in a time when services are being reduced.
  2. Overdevelopment of the site; the number of planned houses exceeds the allocation for the site as published in Cheshire East Council’s Local Plan Strategy.
  3. Lack of affordable housing within the development.

VII.        Increased pressure on primary care facilities.

VIII.       Increased pressure on availability of primary school places, Whirley School is full.

  1. Increased pressure on secondary school places; a shortfall of 392 places by 2024 has been identified by Cheshire East Council.
  2. Removal of trees and hedges which is in incompatible with Macclesfield Town Council and Cheshire East Council’s declaration of a climate emergency.
  3. The development site is prone to flooding and will be exacerbated by the development.

XII.        The application does not clearly meet the Local Plan policy requirements of LPS18 1., 2., 3. & 5.

 

The committee also seek confirmation that any extraction of peat will strictly comply with the policies of the National Planning Policy Framework and Cheshire East Council policies.

 

 

7.  Character Assessment

The final draft has been received and sent to Councillors.

8.  Canal bridge 36

The report was noted.

9.  Correspondence

None

10.         Member Items

None

11.         Date/Time and Place of Next Meeting

The next Planning Committee meeting will take place on 29th April 2022 10am, in Macclesfield Town Hall (to be confirmed).
