There is evidence that residents have been misinformed about the White Moss development proposal and have been led to believe that the WM development will replace existing proposals for MMU etc. or will mean that other Greenfield site applications are rejected.
This is definitely not so.
Cheshire East Council has made it absolutely clear that White Moss development will be additional to other proposals and applications.
- If the 1000 houses at White Moss are approved; it will mean that Alsager gets at least 2100 houses.
- If the current Greenfield applications and Appeals are successful (because Cheshire East no longer has a 5 year supply of house building land) we could finish up with 3000 extra houses.
- This would mean a 60% increase in the size of our town and will transform Alsager from a Market Town into a dormitory commuter Town off the M6.
- The Cheshire East Pre-Submission Core Strategy, recently published, argues that one strategic priority is to preserve the character of the borough’s market towns and that another is to reduce its carbon footprint.
- The document also admits that Junctions 16-18 are already operating over capacity to such an extent that the hard shoulders are to be used as running lanes.
- Alsager is the closest community to this congested section of the M6. Considering all of the other sites to be developed or which are subject to Developers’ Appeals – how does this proposal, to add a further thousand houses with all the traffic and carbon emissions that will be generated, fulfil the strategic priorities of the Local Plan?
