Plans for development of five houses on Adlington Road approved

Plans have been submitted to replace an existing dwelling on the northern side of Adlington Road with a development of five houses.

Swailes Homes Ltd have been granted planning permission to demolish a large detached house, which was originally two properties, at 35-37 Adlington Road and erect 5 new homes on the 0.36 hectare site, using part of the rear garden of 33 Adlington Road.

The existing house will be replaced with three detached houses with 5 bedrooms each and two semi-detached dwellings with 3 bedrooms.

The semi-detached dwellings will be located to the south of the site, with a parking court providing 4 spaces, whilst the northern portion of the site will be occupied with three detached dwellings, with double garages and two parking spaces each.

The original scheme for eight houses was submitted in May 2020 but the application was withdrawn in July 2020 and replaced with these revised plans in November 2020.

The application site adjoins the Bollin Park residential development which was granted planning permission for 204 dwellings in October 2014.

The plans can be viewed on the Cheshire East Planning Portal by searching for reference 20/4564M.

Another brick filled cul de sac, another loss of green infrastructure. This is Adlington Road not Bollin Park.

It has yet to be explained why 20/4564M and other such applications have been approved when the Local Plan provides sufficient housing stock through to 2030 for the planned population expansion.

Residents were lead to believe that the approval of the Local Plan would curb unjustifiable speculative development because legally binding housing stock provision through to 2030 had been already specified within it. This seems to be proving not to be the case and needs explanation.

This trend started when application 14/0007M from P.E.Jones (Contractors) Ltd was unjustifiably approved whilst the old Local Plan was in force. 203 homes were built on “future safeguarded” agricultural land immediately behind house numbers 35 & 37, Adlington Rd, after the committee chairperson used the casting vote to approve 14/0007M. When asked to explain and justify his decision at a public session of a full Council meeting in December 2015, no explanation was given.

Making planning decisions that cannot be justified creates suspicion that stains and corrodes confidence in the planning process and the Planning Dept.

To regain confidence clear reasons to justify the outcome of all future planning applications must be available and open for public inspection and scrutiny.

Finally, a public statement, in plain English from the Planning Dept. that defines the powers that exist within the Local Plan to stop unnecessary speculative development, would be welcome. If no such statement is forthcoming it has be assumed that the Local Plan is an impotent toothless tiger.

More over-urbanisation by stealth - who would have thought it? No explanation given for previous unjustifiable speculative development - who'd a thought? No evidence of developer/committee backhanders - who'da thought? Riding roughshod over local plans - who'da thought?
That's democracy for you - councils, planning depts., committees do as they please.
