Mere Farm Quarry: Public Access

Home » Newsroom » Mere Farm Quarry: Public Access

Planning Application 14/1788W and access to the restored lakes and footpaths:

Residents in Nether Alderley have objected to too small an increase in access to the Mere Farm quarry lakes, once quarrying has finished and the land is restored. Andrew Kay, who represents the views of Nether Alderley residents on the Mere Farm Liaison Committee would like to invite anyone interested in public access to a meeting, the objective of which is to gain consensus on the extent of access residents would like to see from the owners of the land and Hansons. Chelford residents routinely use the footpath from near the old Chelford School on the Alderley Road, running across to Stubby Lane.

A previous planning condition of the 2011 Cheshire East planning decision notice made it clear that increased access to the amenity/lakes should be provided.

Both Nether Alderley and Chelford Parish Councils have stated they believe the planning condition should be met. The views of Nether Alderley and Chelford residents are important to help both residents and the Parish council in making clear their wishes to Cheshire East Council planners.

You are invited to a meeting on Tuesday 15TH JULY 6pm at CHELFORD VILLAGE HALL. This meeting will give a brief 15 minute update and restoration map viewing, and then take views from residents on the increase in lake access and walking they believe is reasonable to suggest to the landowners and Cheshire East in a consultation process.

The meeting which should take around 1 hour and finish about 7pm.

Your opinions and views are very important as this is likely to be the final planning application for the quarry restoration plan and so this is the final opportunity for the communities to express their views.
