4. Observations on Planning Applications

The planning authority has been informed of the date of this meeting and any delays in responses as they relate to all applications with response closing dates before the date of this meeting.

Application No: 19/3097M

Proposal: Reserved Matters application for the erection of 134no. dwellings, vehicular access, roads and footways, hard and soft landscaping, drainage and other associated works following outline approval 17/4277M

Location: Land Between Chelford Road And Whirley Road, Henbury

RESOLVED: That the committee objects to this application on the grounds of:

  1. 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 within the development and between the development and town centre, contrary to the LPS Policy SC3;
  3. Increase of traffic on already congested highways with particular pressure on the development’s access and egress junction;
  4. Increased pressure on public services, e.g. buses, that have already been subject to cuts;
  5. High density of housing in the development reducing the availability of open spaces to support health and wellbeing contrary to the LPS Policy SC3;
  6. The density of the development is in excess of the site allocation within the Cheshire East Local Plan (LPS18), which indicates around 150 houses for the entire site, whilst this partial development of the site indicates around 250 residences will be delivered at this development density
  7. Increased pressure on primary care facilities;
  8. Increased pressure on availability of primary school places;
  9. Lack of evidence that there is capacity in local secondary schools;
  10. Removal of trees and hedges that will result in the loss of wildlife habitat;
  11. Concerns on the risk of flooding in the development area once the hard standing has been completed;
  12. The application does not clearly meet the Local Plan policy requirements of LPS18 1., 2., 3. & 5.
