The planning application to place a Co-Op banner on the green in front of the library ( 12/4058C ) has now been withdrawn on the Cheshire East web site.
The last date for comment on Dunnocksfold Road is 20/12/2012 and the last date for Hall Drive is 19/12/2012. We have had a significant increase in the number of objections for Dunnocksfold Road, currently up to 123 and Hall Drive is now up to a very healthy 326. Dunnocksfold Road still needs a lot more, so please do everything you can to object and ask friends and neighbours also to object.
The first Hassall Road application 12/1670C was correctly rejected by Cheshire East. The developer has now lodged an appeal, which you can see here . The reason given is as expected, that Cheshire East can not demonstrate a 5 year supply of land. We have been assured that the emerging Cheshire East Plan, because it conforms with the National Planning Policy Guidelines (NPPF) and according to advice issued by Eric Pickles and Fiona Bruce, offers protection against this kind of speculative proposal. In this case, the proposed development is on land specifically excluded from the Alsager Town plan. The Alsager plan conforms with Government and Cheshire East standards. It is also the expressed view of Alsager residents. Build on Brownfield before Green. We will keep you posted on developments.
