18/6202M - Residential Development comprising 4, 2-storey dwellings with accommodation in roofspace, following demolition of the existing dwellinghouse, Blackford, Wilmslow Park North, Wilmslow, for Wilmslow Park (GB) Limited pdf icon PDF 601 KB

To consider the above application.

Minutes:

Consideration was given to the above application.

 

(Councillor T Fox, the Ward Councillor, Town Councillor Jon Newell, representing Wilmslow Town Council, Peter Yates, representing Garth Heights Residents’ Association and Kath Ludlam, representing the applicant attended the meeting and spoke in respect of the application).

 

RESOLVED

 

That the application be refused for the following reason:-

 

The proposed development would have a harmful effect on the character and appearance of the area. By virtue of scale, height and mass, the proposal would conflict with policies SD2 and SE1 of the Cheshire East Local Plan Strategy, 2017 and Policy DC41 of the Macclesfield Borough Local Plan which aim to ensure that all development contributes positively to an area’s character and identity, creating or reinforcing local distinctiveness and that windfall and infill development takes into account the existing character and density of the surrounding area.  There is also conflict with the Design Guide for Wilmslow Park which requires development to reflect the characteristics of a specific area, including density of building on a particular site and with paragraph 60 of the National Planning Policy Framework.

 

(This decision was contrary to the Officer’s recommendation of approval).
