Location: KINGS SCHOOL, CUMBERLAND STREET, MACCLESFIELD, CHESHIRE, SK10 1DA

  6. Concerns on air quality following completion of development from increase of traffic on highway;
  7. Provision of access to the site during construction and following development completion;
  8. That there is clarity in the protection of trees with a current TPO and that the on-site cherry trees, which form a significant part of the character of the site, are retained;

  10. A construction traffic management plan, detailing hours of work and with consideration to residents, is issued and agreed with Cheshire East Council;
