Lakes Appeal Result

Home » Newsroom » Lakes Appeal Result

It has been announced today, that the appeal lodged by the developer against Cheshire East for refusing the Chelford Lakes planning application, has been dismissed.

In communicating her judgement, the Planning Inspector made it clear that proposed development was inappropriate in the Green Belt and would result in a significant loss of openness.

Furthermore, the Inspector concluded that the proposals would have a negative impact on the site biodiversity. Whilst she acknowledged the potential benefits of the proposals, she felt that on balance, these benefits were far outweighed by the negative impact on the Green Belt and the countryside. She added that the plans would conflict with the purposes of safeguarding the countryside from encroachment and that the development would have an 'urbanising effect' on the overall character and appearance of an open, tranquil and rural site'.
