8. Local Plan

Resolved: It was resolved for the clerk to go through the documents and highlight any changes for Macclesfield and then feed this back to the Planning Consultation Working Group.

 

9. Member Items

Cllr Wilson raised the correspondence received concerning a proposed EE Ltd telecommunications apparatus at London Road, SK11 7RL. The Committee agreed that the Town Clerk would respond that this is unsuitable for the following reasons:

  • The green space the apparatus would be upon is surrounded by residential properties, including those of elderly residents and the radio mast would tower over the trees.
  • The cabinets would take up significant space on what is a local pocket park with seating for residents to enjoy the park.
  • This is a restful area for residents with a number of benches which are used by local people wishing to enjoy the fresh air, including older residents whose walking ability is limited. The park also contains a Covid commemorative tree and plaque recently installed by Macclesfield Town Council and the siting of such equipment in the same location as a Covid memorial would be disrespectful.

 

10. Date/Time and Place of Next Meeting

The next Planning Committee meeting will take place on 20th May 2022 10am, in Macclesfield Town Hall.
