Controversial plans rejected by Cheadle Town Council

By timesecholife on in All News, Latest News

PROTESTERS campaigning against controversial proposals to build 300 homes and a school in Cheadle have received the backing of the town council.

The proposal originally caused uproar from a number of residents near the Froghall Road site who are fighting Staffordshire Moorlands District Council in a bid to get the plans thrown out.

Members voted to refuse the plans at a meeting on Monday.

The full scale major planning application was submitted to the district council by Persimmon Homes
As a statutory consultee, the town council were given the opportunity to pass comment on the plans and share their views with the planning applications committee at SMDC as part of the decision-making process.

The ‘Cheadle North Strategic Area’ is highlighted as a ‘preferred site’ for development in the district council’s Local Plan, but the area – which is off Froghall Road between Donkey Lane and Ayr Road and sweeps round behind the Hammersley Hayes estate – has previously proved unpopular among some residents and town council members.

Now, Cheadle Town Council have refused the application, which was debated at Monday nights meeting, on a number of grounds.
