Plans to replace tennis court with houses

Plans have been submitted to replace a tennis court with a residential development.

Oliver James Construction are seeking permission to demolish an unused indoor tennis court and construct five houses on land off Moor Lane.

The 0.34 acre site adjoins Green Hedges and is located on the south side of Moor Lane, west of its junction with Clay Lane.

The scheme is for three 3-bed terraced units, plus two 4-bed semi-detached units, laid within the footprint of the tennis court. The properties will be built over 2.5 storeys and share 12 parking spaces.

The plans can be viewed on the Cheshire East Council website by searching for planning reference 20/5559. The deadline for submitting comments is January 13th.

More nibbling away at open spaces and 'filling in' bits of spare ground just to make someone richer!
All with the effect of putting more pressure on the roads, schools, doctors, drains etc. and with no extra police, fire and ambulance/hospital facilities.

Let alone the continual hot topic of parking in town!
