Proposal:     Erection of a residential development (Use Class C3) with associated vehicular access, roads and footways, hard and soft landscaping, drainage and other associated works (re-submission of application 19/3098M).

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

Comments due back 30th March 2022

 

Resolved: That the committee objects to this application in line with previous objections to developments on this site on the grounds of:

 

  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.
  • 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.
  • Increased pressure on primary care facilities.
  • Increased pressure on availability of primary school places.
  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.
  • 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.
