Lakes Appeal

Home » Newsroom » Lakes Appeal

The date for the Lakes appeal hearing has now been set for September 6th. The Lakes developer lodged an appeal several months ago, against the decision by Cheshire East to refuse the planning application for the proposed waterpark on the now restored site of the former Mere Farm quarry.

The planning application, has been the subject of four separate Strategic Planning Board meetings, which resulted in a final decision to refuse the planning application on the grounds that it would have a negative effect on the biodiversity of the site and that the location did not meet the criteria for environmental sustainability due to its poor accessibility other than by car. The Board also determined that the proposed development was inappropriate for the site and would impact negatively on the openness of the green belt. Both Chelford and Nether Alderley Parish Councils have opposed the planning application since it was first submitted.

A government appointed, independent inspector will hear the case for and against the appeal and will then make a judgement on whether the appeal can be upheld or rejected. The developer's appeal statement and the Cheshire East response can be found on the Cheshire East planning section of their website.
