Redrow - Planning Applications Relating to Land at Smithfields - Tuesday 1 March

Home » News » Smithfields Land: Hearing Today

Tattenhall Online has just learned that Mike Jones has called in these applications to the CW&C Planning Committee and that the hearing has been scheduled for today, 1st March 2016 at (3.45 for) 4.00pm, at CWaC Headquarters.

The notice is very short but completely legal.

There are matters which are hugely relevant to future expected applications (for batches of 30 houses) which might follow the three major Appeals.

The Planning Committee should be reminded of the importance of all provisions of our 'Neighbourhood Plan'.

If at all possible do come to support Carol Weaver and our other speakers at this hearing on Tuesday at the CWaC HQ, Nicholas Street, Chester, CH1 2NP.
Parking in Chester is free after 3pm.

Friends of Tattenhall have published the following as a reminder to everyone ....

Re. Three planning applications relating to land at Smithfields, Tattenhall from Redrow Homes NW.
1. 15/04562/FUL 2. 15/04561/S73 3. 15/04560/REM

1. While other major Tattenhall appeals are being considered by the Secretary of State, this application is not measured, proportionate or timely: nor is there evidence to support local requirements for market units of this type.
2. This scheme will be part of large scale 'bolt on' suburban development contrary to these Objectives and to provisions of the Tattenhall Village Design Statement (see 8 below).
3. Local people have not been involved in developing this scheme as is required.
4. This scheme is not the separate 28-unit development for which outline planning permission was granted. It has been changed to an 88-dwelling scheme and as such is contrary to this provision.
5. All the proposed market units are 4-bed houses (as are most of those planned behind Harding Avenue by Redrow). No assessment of need indicates this lack of mix is what is required. In fact a previous Parish survey suggested smaller market houses could meet a local need.
6. Tattenhall's 'sense of place' is not maintained by the proposed standard suburban house designs arranged in a poor suburban layout.
7. There is no attempt to reinforce local distinctiveness.
8. There is little compliance with relevant provisions of the Tattenhall Village Design Statement; for example, BEP 2 (incremental growth, scale and character), BEP 9 (buildings at edge of village), BEP 14 (materials, eg. brick, sandstone, slate).
9. More large properties would generate even greater traffic loads with related dangers on surrounding roads eg. Park Avenue and Tattenhall Road adjacent to the Primary School.
