Dunnocksfold Road Appeal – 11/2/2014

The Dunnocksfold Road Appeal will start tomorrow 11/2/2014 at 10.30.

The venue is the Assembly Halls in Macclesfield and the appeal is scheduled to last for 3 days.

On the first day, the Inspector will set the schedule for the duration of the appeal, possibly including a site visit.  Members of the public may speak, at the discretion of the Inspector but the timing of public participation slots is usually arranged on the first day.

The original Dunnocksfold Road proposal, which was specifically excluded in the Alsager Town Plan, was rejected by Cheshire East and the developer appealed that decision.  The basis for the appeal was   that in the developer’s view Cheshire East could not demonstrate a 5 year supply of housing.  Recent appeals elsewhere have confirmed that the planning Inspectorate agreed with that point of view. Cheshire East, however,  has since announced that it can now realistically demonstrate a 5 year supply of housing.  Furthermore, the Inspector at the Sandbach Road North appeal stated that the lack of a 5 year supply was not a green light for all planning permissions to be granted.

It is very important to demonstrate to the Inspector that the Alsager Community does not want uncontrolled and unwanted  development.  Please come to Macclesfield tomorrow and support your town, Alsager.
