  • Cllr Fiona Wilson
  • Cllr Lloyd Roberts

1. Apologies for Absence

There were no members of the public attending the meeting.


3. Minutes of the Planning Committee Meeting held on 19th March 2021

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

4. Matters Arising from the Minutes

Cllr Wilson provided an update on 19/3097M, Reserved Matters for erection of 134 dwellings on land between Chelford Road and Whirley Road, which she spoke about at the Strategic Planning Board (SPB) on 24/03/21.

The SPB approved 19/3097M but did not approve 19/3098M for the erection of 23 dwellings at the same location, with over-development as one reason for its rejection.

Cllr Wilson raised two concerns regarding the approval of 19/3097M:

  1. Three members of the SPB lost connectivity to the meeting and were not given an opportunity to rejoin and were therefore unable to vote.
  2. That despite initial assurance that peat would not be removed from the development site, it is now evident that a substantial amount of peat will be removed.

RESOLVED: That a letter is written to the Head of Cheshire East Planning highlighting concerns on:

  1. The conduct of the vote for 19/3097M at the SPB on 24/03/21 that prevented all members from having an opportunity to participate.
  2. The removal of peat that conflicts with environmental measures such as counterbalancing CO2 emissions and Cheshire East Council’s acknowledgement of the climate emergency.
