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.

Location:      Land between Chelford Road Henbury and Whirley Road Macclesfield Cheshire

Proposal:      Erection of 23no. dwellings, vehicular access, roads and footways, hard and soft landscaping, drainage and other associated works.

Comments due back by 2nd May 2022.

 

Resolved: The committee continues to object to this application for the following reasons:

 

  1. Incompatibility with Macclesfield Town Council and Cheshire East Council’s declaration of climate emergency; the development will lead to increased traffic volumes. 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 between the development and town centre which is in incompatible with Macclesfield Town Council and Cheshire East Council’s declaration of a climate emergency and contrary to the LPS Policy SC3.

III.         The Broken Cross junction is a known bottleneck in and out of Macclesfield; congestion will be worsened by an increase in traffic from the development. Additionally, a traffic plan to ease the bottlenecks at this junction has yet to be published.

  1. Increased pressure on public transport in a time when services are being reduced.
  2. Overdevelopment of the site; the number of planned houses exceeds the allocation for the site as published in Cheshire East Council’s Local Plan Strategy.
  3. Lack of affordable housing within the development.

VII.        Increased pressure on primary care facilities.

VIII.       Increased pressure on availability of primary school places, Whirley School is full.

  1. Increased pressure on secondary school places; a shortfall of 392 places by 2024 has been identified by Cheshire East Council.
  2. Removal of trees and hedges which is in incompatible with Macclesfield Town Council and Cheshire East Council’s declaration of a climate emergency.
  3. The development site is prone to flooding and will be exacerbated by the development.

XII.        The application does not clearly meet the Local Plan policy requirements of LPS18 1., 2., 3. & 5.

 

The committee also seek confirmation that any extraction of peat will strictly comply with the policies of the National Planning Policy Framework and Cheshire East Council policies.

5.  Matters Arising from the Minutes

Resolved: There were no matters arising.

 

6.  Observations on Planning Applications

 

Application No:     22/0577M

Proposal:     Erection of a residential development (Use Class C3) with associated vehicular access, roads and footways, hard and soft landscaping, drainage and other associated works (re-submission of application 19/3098M).

Location:     Land between Chelford Road Henbury and Whirley Road Macclesfield Cheshire

Comments due back 30th March 2022

 

Resolved: That the committee objects to this application in line with previous objections to developments on this site on the grounds of:

 

  1. Incompatibility with Macclesfield Town Council and Cheshire East Council’s declaration of climate emergency; the development will lead to increased traffic volumes. 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 between the development and town centre which is in incompatible with Macclesfield Town Council and Cheshire East Council’s declaration of a climate emergency and contrary to the LPS Policy SC3.
  • The Broken Cross junction is a known bottleneck in and out of Macclesfield; congestion will be worsened by an increase in traffic from the development. Additionally, a traffic plan to ease the bottlenecks at this junction has yet to be published.
  1. Increased pressure on public transport in a time when services are being reduced.
  2. Overdevelopment of the site; the number of planned houses exceeds the allocation for the site as published in Cheshire East Council’s Local Plan Strategy.
  3. Lack of affordable housing within the development.
  • Increased pressure on primary care facilities.
  • Increased pressure on availability of primary school places.
  1. Increased pressure on secondary school places; a shortfall of 392 places by 2024 has been identified by Cheshire East Council.
  2. Removal of trees and hedges which is in incompatible with Macclesfield Town Council and Cheshire East Council’s declaration of a climate emergency.
  3. The development site is prone to flooding and will be exacerbated by the development.
  • The application does not clearly meet the Local Plan policy requirements of LPS18 1., 2., 3. & 5.

 

The committee also seek confirmation that any extraction of peat will strictly comply with the policies of the National Planning Policy Framework and Cheshire East Council policies.

Minutes of the meeting  held on 4th February 2022 at 10am at Macclesfield Town Hall.

 

Present:

Cllr Mike Hutchison (Chair)

Cllr Fiona Wilson

Cllr David Edwardes

Cllr Sandy Livingstone

 

1.  Apologies for Absence

Apologies received from Cllr Roberts.

 

2.  Declarations of Interest

Cllr Sandy Livingstone declared a non-pecuniary interest in all items related to the Land East of Congleton Rd, as the housing association he works for considered being involved in the development but opted not to.

Cllr David Edwardes declared a non-pecuniary interest in application 22/0162M as he has close connections with the Tytherington Family Worship Church.

 

3.  Public Participation

The meeting was adjourned to invite public comments and questions.

 

Cllr Brian Puddicombe, CE Councillor for Macclesfield South Ward, spoke on the applications relating to the Land East of Congleton Road

Cllr Puddicombe said this decision was made in 2017 under a different CEC administration, and is there now the same need for 950 houses?

Public transport is not mentioned in the plans but poses an issue – there needs to be assurances there will be bus services and active travel is encouraged.

The plans for retail are very close to the residential areas, there are limited car parking details, hours of operation is not mentioned and there is no is mention of sustainability of the building. Again is there a need for a large retail area?

The school floor plan is ‘ghastly’ with no mention of sustainability and no proven need as yet for school places.

The demolition yard does not mention sustainability or how many jobs may be created.

The houses themselves are uninspiring designs with approx. 10% of affordable housing when it should be 30%. Plus, the affordable housing is not ‘pepper potted’ throughout but lumped together.

Phase 8 is next to a railway line with no barrier indicated.

Cllr Puddicombe noted that there have been material planning changes since 2017 and this scheme is no longer valid.

 

The meeting was reconvened.

 

4.  Minutes of the Planning Committee Meeting held on 14th January 2022

Resolved: The minutes were approved.

 

5.  Matters Arising from the Minutes

Resolved: There were no matters arising.

 

6.  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.

The Planning Committee considers all applications it is notified of and returns comments to the Local Planning Authority (Cheshire East Council) unless it has no objections.

The committee discussed the next 9 applications all relating to Land East of Congleton Rd, Macclesfield.

Points were made as follows:

  • Outline planning for this development was approved in 2017, the question has to be asked if it is still necessary and appropriate in 2022. The committee believe it is not.
  • The plans have failed to give details to meet appropriate CEC standards for planning applications.
  • More out of town retail is not necessary it harms the town centre regeneration, which the Town Centre Recovery Group is working hard to change, plus there has been a lot of recent opposition to Barracks Mill, and the subsequent closure and move of shops from the town centre.
  • The primary school is designed with one corridor, which is not covid future proof.
  • The playing fields are next to a main road and the design is ‘prison’ like.
  • No other nearby schools were consulted and a new school could affect their school places.
  • The demolition yard doesn’t mention the number of jobs to be created.
  • The dwellings have approx. 11% affordable housing which is lumped together in each phase rather than pepper potted throughout. CEC set out that affordable housing should be 30% therefore these plans are not in accordance with CEC Local Plan policy SC5.
  • 4 storey dwellings are inappropriate, there is nothing else like this in the area, and apartments were never previously mentioned 17/1874M. The apartments are not in keeping with design within the local area and will be too close to existing dwellings.
  • The design and quality of all the houses and buildings lack character are featureless and not in keeping with the surrounding area. MTC have recently completed a Character Assessment for Macclesfield and these designs are contrary to the contents of the character of Macclesfield.
  • The layout itself is grid like and uninspiring,
  • There are dwellings close to the railway line with no buffer.
  • The damage to the peatland and wildlife is contrary to CEC Policies regarding climate change and protecting the environment.

Application No:        22/0030M

Proposal:        Details of access, appearance, landscaping, layout and scale for Phase 2 – 4,000sq m of retail (Use Class A1) pursuant to outline planning submission 17/1874M.

Resolved:

The committee objects for the following reasons:

  1. There are not sufficient details within the plan.
  2. The original Local Plan LPS13 restricted food retail.
  • There is no need for further out of town shopping. The Town Centre Recovery Working Group is working hard to help the town centre and this development will encourage people to the outskirts of town rather than into the centre.
  1. The design does not adhere to policies SE1 and SD2 in the Cheshire East Council Local Plan Strategy. There is no transport plan to bring people to and from the site.
  2. The ‘Relief Road’ is not fit for purpose as outlined in our response to 19/1796M.

Planning Committee Minutes 14th January 2022

Minutes of the meeting held on 14th January 2022 at 10am in Macclesfield Town Hall.

In attendance:

  • Cllr David Edwardes
  • Cllr Fiona Wilson
  • Cllr Sandy Livingstone

1.  Apologies for Absence

Cllr Janet Jackson MBE

Cllr Mike Hutchison

Cllr Lloyd Roberts

 

2.  Declarations of Interest

Cllr Livingstone declared a non-pecuniary interest in application 19/1796M as he had prior knowledge of the development as the housing association he works for considered being involved in the development but opted not to.

 

3.  Public Participation

The meeting was adjourned for public participation.

 

Cllr Puddicombe spoke on application 19/1796M:

  • Since outline permission was approved in 2019, he asked the committee to consider what has changed since 2019:
    • The new link road comes out onto Moss Lane and is a major problem with the application. The area already has issues with air quality, wear and tear to the road and congestion particularly at peak times.
    • Plans to relocate the Moss Rose football club to the SDMA to allow for improvements to the Moss Lane/London Road junction will not now be progressed. With the success of the new football club, the area is seeing much more vehicular traffic and parking near the grounds. With this in mind, how can the junction be improved to accommodate the extra traffic from the 950 houses planned for the development site?
    • The SDMA has a lot of peat and, since outline planning permission was granted, more is known about the adverse environmental implications of peat extraction with greater expectation for councils to enact policies that address the climate emergency.

 

Cllr Edwardes read the following statement from Cllr Jeuda on application 19/1796M:

I am a Cheshire East Councillor for Macclesfield South Ward and speaking on behalf of concerned residents about this application.

I have spoken at the Strategic Planning Board on several occasions about the proposal for the development of the SMDA.  As the plans to develop land East of Macclesfield have already been passed I will not comment on the development.  What does concern me is the lack of an appropriate road system and the current plan does little to address this issue.

The plan to bring what will be a huge amount of traffic on to Moss Lane from both Congleton Road and London Road is to many residents unacceptable.  Moss Lane as anyone who uses the road will tell you is already heavily used with heavy vehicles accessing industrial sites as well as domestic traffic taking a short cut from either main road to the other.  In the mornings and early evenings traffic can be at a standstill at both London Road and Moss Lane.   The junctions currently present particular hazards for motorists trying to turn right out of Moss Lane, which results in traffic backing up the length of Moss Lane.

Motorists already use Parkgate Road and other roads on the Moss Estate as a preferable alternative to Moss Lane creating an increase in traffic though a residential area.  There is a risk to residents of more traffic related incidents and pollution from vehicles and will only add to the already high incidence of respiratory related incidents in the area.  The proposed roundabout at Moorhill Road and Moss Lane and changes to the junctions on several of the roads on the estate will do nothing to mitigate this.

For the SMDA to be successful a Link Road is absolutely essential to take traffic from London Road to Congleton Road and away from the residential area.  For many years it was understood that the road would go across the railway line, the idea was revived several years ago with the suggestion that Railtrak would finance it, this being the obvious route.  However we know that is not an option; – to develop an area as huge as the SMDA, major investment in an efficient road network is essential.  The current proposal is a patchwork of bits and pieces, a road here, a roundabout there and will not compensate for what was originally proposed and only bring further misery to residents and motorists.

 

Cllr Edwardes read the following statement from the Macclesfield Wild Network on application 19/1796M:

It is accepted that outline permission has been granted for the site, but the decision cannot be implemented until the details set out in reserved matters are approved. The details of the proposed link road and Phase 1 infrastructure are grossly deficient, and by ignoring environmental assessment regulations all opportunities for creating a viable scheme have been squandered. Detailed comments and observations on the proposed link road are attached. The main issues are:

  1. Failure to consider climate change impacts;
  2. Failure to evaluate impacts on the substantial peat deposits and groundwater on site;
  3. Failure to implement an Environmental Impact Assessment of critical issues;
  4. Failure to adequately assess impacts on habitats and wildlife;
  5. Failure to provide effective mitigation measures for impacts on wildlife;
  6. Failure to consider adequate active travel facilities;
  7. Failure to provide a cost-effective landscape scheme that maximises environmental benefits;
  8. Failure to observe the letter and spirit of Cheshire East Council’s Carbon Neutrality Action Plan, and other council strategies.

The proposed scheme will be highly damaging to the quality and sustainability of the Town. For these reasons Macclesfield Town Council we urge the Town Council to object to the proposals.

The committee noted they had read the objection to planning application 19/1796M shared to the Planning Committee in an email from Cheshire Wildlife Trust. The objection is available on the CEC planning portal.

 

The meeting was then reconvened.

 

4.  Minutes of the Planning Committee Meeting held on 10th December 2021

RESOLVED: That the minutes are approved as a true record of the meeting.

 

5.  Matters Arising from the Minutes

None.

 

6.  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.

 

The Planning Committee considers all applications it is notified of and returns comments to the Local Planning Authority (Cheshire East Council) unless it has no objections.

 

Application No: 19/1796M

Proposal:  Phase 1 primary infrastructure works comprising of enabling works, new highways, footpaths/cycleways, public open spaces, ecology areas and associated hard and soft landscaping, drainage and servicing works pursuant to outline planning permission 17/1874M.

Location:   Land East Of, Congleton Road, Macclesfield

 

It was noted by the committee that outline planning was approved on 17/01/19. 17/01/22 is 3 years hence after which point the permission expires.

Several additional planning applications for the site have been raised this week.

 

There a number of material changes since outline planning was registered on 10/04/2017.

  • Key changes relate to the proposed relocation of Macclesfield football stadium that is now not going to happen and the route of the relief road between Congleton Road and London Road, specifically the section between Moorhill Road and London Road.
  • There are a number of conditions on outline planning relating to highway safety including plans listed in the outline permission for the junction of Moss Lane to Congleton Road and Moss Lane to London Road that cannot be found on the planning portal – and have been requested.
  • Objections from residents refer to the existing heavy traffic on Moss Lane and the condition of the road.
  • Parking is a significant problem around the football ground and has worsened since the outline decision in 2017 due to the club’s recent successful overhaul. The new stadium and gym is being used every evening.
  • The treatment and removal of peat is covered in the NPPF relating to policies on cardon storage and biodiversity net gain. CEC has policies in the Local Plan Strategy and draft SADPD on sustainable development. Peat is a significant contributor to combating climate change and the removal of peat will cause ecological damage.
  • The proposal will impact the neighbouring Danes Moss site which is an SSSI.
  • There are many public rights of way on the site although the plan only shows FP1. Walking routes have been identified by the CEC public rights of way team who have submitted a detailed report.
  • No provision for cycle paths despite the proximity of national cycle network 55.
  • Strategic priority number 2 from the CEC Local Plan Strategy ‘Creating sustainable communities, where all members are able to contribute and where all the infrastructure required to support the community is provided’ is not met by this application.

 

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

  1. There have been significant material changes in the original application 17/1874M that was registered on 10/04/2017 relating to the relief road where it joins the area near the Macclesfield football club and the knowledge of the damage done to the environment by the removal of peat.
  2. The relief road as outlined in the application plus the pressure on Moss Lane specifically the junction with Congleton Road and London Road does not meet Cheshire East Council policy CO4 regarding travel plans and transport assessments and, in particular attention for the Planning Officer, the proposed new section between Moorhill Road and London Road which would never be fit for purpose as a relief road.
  • A peat map and environmental report are required for the whole of the site to ensure that the treatment of peat on the site is dealt with in accordance with the National Planning Policy Framework 120b regarding carbon storage and 174 regarding biodiversity net gain, and also in line with Cheshire East Council policy SD1 regarding sustainable development and ENV1 and ENV2, the site being next to a protected SSSI.
  1. A number of very well established but unrecorded walking routes have been identified across the site by Ward Councillors, Cheshire East Council public rights of way and residents. These must be protected in line with current legislation.
  2. A transport plan is required to facilitate active travel.
  3. The application makes no reference to public transport access – this issue must be rectified.

 

The following application (21/6422M) is from the Supplementary Agenda, which was discussed at this point in the meeting:

 

Application No:         21/6422M

Proposal:          Details of access, appearance, landscaping, layout and scale for Phase 8 – 179 dwellings (Use Class C3) pursuant to outline planning permission 17/1874M.

Location: Land East of Congleton Road, Macclesfield

 

RESOLVED: That this application will be considered at the Planning Committee meeting on 04/02/22.

 

Application No:         21/6467W

Proposal:          Change of use of site from vehicle recovery depot to waste recycling centre, installation of weighbridge, removal of existing temporary building and erection of two new canopy buildings for the receipt and storage of non-hazardous wastes (temporary for 3 years)

Location: Mansfield House, Withyfold Drive, Macclesfield, Cheshire, SK10 2BD

 

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

 

  1. Harmful impact to the health of residents in the area,
  2. Safety concerns resulting from large vehicles travelling on residential roads,
  • Noise disturbance created by large vehicles visiting the site,
  1. Noise disturbance from the site,
  2. Noxious smells from the site,
  3. Fumes resulting from increase in traffic,
  • Concerns of the potential for hazardous waste,
  • Disturbance of existing contaminants on the site,
  1. Increase to air pollution,
  2. Danger from flying debris,
  3. Contamination of the River Bollin,
  • Disturbance to rare wildlife,
  • Does not meet CEC policies ENV1 and ENV2 of the SADPD.

 

The committee noted the previous application for this site, 20/1080W, was refused planning permission by CEC for the following reason:

 

The proposed use of residential roads by HGVs and other commercial vehicles accessing the site would cause harm to residential amenity in terms of noise and disruption, and adversely impact on the quality of life for those residents. This would be contrary to policy SE12 of the Cheshire East Local Plan Strategy, Cheshire Replacement Waste Local Plan policy 23, Macclesfield Borough Local Plan policies DC3 and DC13 and the NPPF.
