Cllr Harewood MBE declared a non-pecuniary interest in application 19/5838M as a number of members of the public have contacted her regarding the application.


The meeting was adjourned at 10.32 to allow for members of the public to speak of their concerns on application 19/5426M.

The speakers live in properties neighbouring the development site.

Collectively, the residents raised the following concerns:

  1. The use class of C3 is incorrect for the number of apartments as the limit is capped at 6 people living together as a single household;
  2. The plans contain errors and are contradictory in places;
  3. Detrimental impact to the area;
  4. Inappropriate and unsympathetic development;
  5. The site is on a busy road and near a busy junction;
  6. Invasion of privacy to neighbouring properties with habitable rooms in the proposed development directly overlooking neighbour’s habitable rooms. It was noted that the building in its current form has frosted glass to address overlooking neighbouring properties but this feature was not present in the current plans;
  7. The proposed development does not meet the standard spacing between buildings being at its least 14 metres;
  8. The new development will extend the existing building to 3 storeys; blocking light and overbearing neighbouring properties;
  9. Overdevelopment in the area;
  10. Concerns of noise affecting neighbouring amenity space;
  11. Lack of parking spaces compounded by the garage converted into a community area;
  12. The development is not keeping with the area.

In addition, some of the neighbours raised a concern that they had not been consulted.

John Knight, a neighbour, believes the application should be withdrawn on the basis that the categorisation of the development is incorrect.

The public was thanked for the comments and advised that a planning officer has identified the development at Use Class 3 cannot contain more than 6 apartments.

The meeting was reconvened at 11.03 following the departure of the attending public.


3. Minutes of the Planning Committee Meeting Held on 20th December 2019

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

4. Matters Arising From the Minutes

Cllr Wilson sought an update on the character assessment and requested it is added as an item on the agenda at the next meeting.

5. Observations on Planning Applications

Application No: 19/5426M

Proposal: Extension and internal alterations to the existing building to provide 8 no. supported living apartments (Use Class C3) with associated parking and facilities

Location: 28, IVY LANE, MACCLESFIELD, CHESHIRE, SK11 8NR

RESOLVED: That not withstanding that due process has not been followed to correctly categorise the development, the committee objects to this application on the grounds of:

  1. The development is overbearing;
  2. Overdevelopment of the site;
  3. Insufficient parking;
  4. Loss of natural light to neighbouring properties;
  5. Loss of privacy to existing properties (not meeting the standard spacing between habitable rooms as documented in SADPD HOU 11);
  6. Proximity to a busy highway and junction;
  7. Loss of amenity to neighbours;
  8. The number of rooms exceed the limit set by Use Class C3.

In addition, and with reference to viii, the committee recommends the application is withdrawn.

It was also noted that a Cheshire East Councillor has called in this application for examination by a Cheshire East Planning Board.

Cllr Edwardes wished to highlight that not all the residents in properties bordering the boundary of the development site had been consulted.
