Strategic planning board – a good result.

The Cheshire East Strategic Planning Board met on Wednesday to consider two outline planning applications in Alsager and one in Church Lawton.

Planning officers had recommended refusal of Hall Drive reference (12/4150C) and Sandbach Road North (12/4872C) After some debate the councillors supported the recommendations and refused the applications but the developers will almost certainly appeal.

Although the Rectory Farm, Church Lawton (12/3016c) was recommended for approval, the Rectory Farm Action Group very successfully challenged this recommendation and the councillors also refused this application Рagainst the advice of the planning officers. Again, the developers may appeal.
