There are two major planning applications currently with Cheshire East, which if approved, will impact on Chelford.
The first application, located at Holly Tree House, Pepper Street, is for a large scale development. The Parish Council is concerned about these proposals because of the potential loss of Green Belt land, the likely increase in traffic though our Village and the additional pressure on services, particularly our local surgery. The site is not too far from the land opposite the Egerton Arms, which was the subject of previous development proposals and which were strongly opposed by many residents.
The second proposed development is situated at Radbroke Hall, Over Peover and involves a major rebuild by Barclays. These proposals will also have consequences for traffic moving through Chelford.
The parishes of Snelson, Ollerton with Marthall and Lower Peover will also be affected by these two proposed developments. Consequently the respective parish councils have joined together to consider their responses to each application. As a first step, the four parish councils have agreed to instruct highways consultants to advise them and provide recommendations, which will inform parish council submissions to Cheshire East.
The deadline for resident comments to Cheshire East is December 23rd. The planning application references are:
Holly Tree House 20/4976M
Radbroke Hall 20/4747M
These can be found on the Cheshire East website.
