3        Public Participation

The meeting was adjourned to invite public comments and questions

The clerk read out the following from a member of the public concerning item 21/4231M.

Firstly, I would like to ask that the review of this proposal is deferred until the next meeting of the planning committee. The deadline for comments is 19th November and therefore the committee are making comment without constituents having the opportunity to make their concerns )or support) known. This seems incoherent to the purpose of the committee.

I am writing to object to the planning application under the above reference relating to the proposal for a two storey extension to the rear of No 31 Tytherington Lane.

I have already written with my comments on the addendum to the heritage statement and wish to offer further, more general comment.

I set out the initial grounds of my objection below.

  1. Proposed materials. The drawings submitted, although short on detail, do propose materials not in keeping with the setting. Large expanses of unbroken rendered blockwork wall are not sympathetic to the setting of the locally listed group of buildings, indeed one immediate neighbouring property is a Grade II listed building. The use of rendering would contravene the “Cheshire East Borough Design Guide” SPD, 2017 (pages 20, 21 and 22) relating to local materials.
  2. Roof material is proposed to be “Tiles to match existing”. The current roofing material is Kerridge stone, which is in keeping with the host property and surrounding properties. To replace these with concrete tiles would be a travesty. A change from this material would contravene the “Cheshire East Borough Design Guide” SPD, 2017 (pages 20, 21 and 22) relating to local materials.
  3. Scale of the development. The revised proposal remains out of proportion with the host property and will dominate the adjacent properties, including my own, and damage the amenity of the garden area. The proposed rear roof line will be visible from the highway when travelling from the North or the South and will harm the setting of the Grade II listed property. The revised proposal will also domineer the lower properties to the rear, overlooking them when the tree screening is thinned out in the winter months. The above, as well as harming the setting of listed properties, would contravene policy DC41, 2 in the Saved Macclesfield Local Plan, as well as not recognising the principle of policy DC38 in offering “commensurate degree of light and privacy between buildings” with the stated reason, at 17.43, of safeguarding residential amenities in respect of light, privacy and space between buildings. This applies particularly to No’s 27 and 33 Tytherington Lane.
  4. Additional occupancy. Proposal to increase the floor area and bedrooms will likely result in increased occupancy and more vehicles on Tytherington Lane. There have been numerous minor accidents / collisions on Tytherington Lane, indeed the Highways Authority are looking at what measures can be taken to mitigate the current situation. To promote further occupancy in these circumstances seems incoherent with the accepted issue.
  5. Drainage. To further increase the impermeable area may result in increased flood risk. Appropriate surface water management is to be considered and there is no adequate mention of this in the proposals. The response from the flood risk officer at Cheshire East Council appears to be lip service to the matter and does not appear to have considered the site specific details of this proposal.
  6. Wildlife. There are currently bats active in the area and many neighbours believe that the Kerridge stone roofs on a number of the Tytherington Lane properties are the roosts for these mammals. There is no mention of wildlife protection in the proposals.

In summary, I object to the proposal for the reasons above and the proposal is broadly similar to the previous proposal and there appears to be insufficient alteration for the reason for refusal to be changed. It is difficult to offer a comprehensive review as there are insufficient details on the submitted drawings (few dimensions, annotations or elevations from the South).

The meeting was then reconvened.

4        Minutes of the Planning Committee Meeting held on 8th October 2021

Resolved:        The minutes were approved.

 

5        Matters Arising from the Minutes

Resolved:        Cllr Wilson raised her previous members item  21/4113M Land North of Congleton Road, Macclesfield and to see if a response had been received from the panning officer for the following:

  • The reason for the application to be determined by delegated authority and not committee i.e. SPB.
  • The reason Macclesfield Town Council was not consulted.
  • The extent of the distribution of the developer’s pre-consultation leaflet.

The clerk will check and get back to the committee.
