Cllr Sandy Livingstone declared a non-pecuniary interest in application 20/4065N as he knows the executive director of operations.

 

3.          Public Participation

 

The meeting was adjourned to invite public comments and questions.

 

Cllr Brian Puddicombe spoke on application 20/4065M.

A couple of good points:

  • It is all now affordable housing with 12 one bedroom apartments and 6 two bedroom cottages but are actually apartments
  • No longer looks like a prison building
  • No longer 3 storey but there are still issues regarding overlooking on Whitfield and Langley drives

Objection comments:

  • Still a shortage of car parking spaces
  • Highways is still a major problem, Moss Lane will struggle to take any more traffic and with it being near to the Congleton Road junction which is already a problem to get out of
  • Water pressure is a continuous problem on Craig road and this proposed new development will have an impact on this.
  • A soil analysis has been carried out by a company called Worms Eye which is showing on the portal. It shows the presence of peat in the area.

 

The meeting was reconvened.

Application No: 20/4065M
Proposal: Erection of 18no. 100% affordable apartments within 2no. blocks with associated access, parking, landscaping and other works.
Location: Land at Moss Lane, Macclesfield

Comments due back 12th October 2022

Macclesfield Town Council continue to objection to this application and make the following comments:

  • Location of bin store is next to the footpath from Rotherhead Drive to the play area.
  • Soil analysis is showing on the portal stating there is from 0.4m-1m thick peat present
  • National England do not support the development of building on peat and so are objecting to the application
  • Cheshire East local plan states there should be 36 car parking spaces but there will only be 25 available
  • No transport statement
  • No EV charging points in the plan
  • An increase in the volume of traffic, contributing to an increase in pollution and exacerbating parking issues in the area
  • Overdevelopment
  • Concerns over drainage, flood risk and insufficient water pressure with properties in the area already experiencing poor water pressures
  • Loss of open space and wildlife habitat
  • Overlooking and loss of privacy to neighbouring properties
  • An adverse impact on nature conservation
  • Landscape scheme is required
  • Clarity is needed on the South Macclesfield Development Area in terms of providing green infrastructure and landscaping and the proximity of the Moss Lane development to public footpaths

However, MTC did note that

  • It is a affordable scheme, talks about affordable rent charges for the development
  • Keen to improve the quality and quantity availability of affordable housing
  • Have no concerns over Jigsaw homes, reputable company serving the North West

Location: Craven House, CHURCHILL WAY, MACCLESFIELD, SK11 6AY

Comments due back by 29th September 2022

Macclesfield Town Council support residential developments within the town centre but note the following:

  • There could be an over concentration of placing, too much into the space available.
  • Debris, noise and litter could be a problem
  • 1 apartment, in the middle, seems to be missing natural light.
  • The acoustics and smell from the food premises, would need confirmation of how this is going to be addressed

We ask the planning officer:

  • To check that the area isn’t over developed, overcrowding, recommended room sizes
  • That it meets the guidelines about room sizes from the Cheshire East Council local plan
  • Possibly reduce the rooms from 4 to 3
  • Concerns about noise and fumes and would like further investigation before planning approval was granted
