Cheerbrook Planning Application Approved

The planning application to build 21 houses on land north of Cheerbrook Road was approved by the Cheshire East Strategic Planning Board on 6th November 2013.

This application was previously refused in May but the Developer lodged an appeal and also resubmitted the application.  This time it was recommended for approval by the Board:

"The site is within the Open Countryside where under Policy NE.2 there is a presumption against new residential development. The NPPF states that where authorities cannot demonstrate a 5 year supply of housing land, relevant local plan policies are out of date and there is a presumption in favour of development. Following the recent appeal decisions, the automatic presumption in favour of the proposal does apply and Policies NE.2 and NE.4 are considered to be out of date."

There is no option for the public or the Parish Council to appeal this decision.
