Yesterday afternoon Henbury residents got the first chance to look at draft development proposals for the 'Greenbelt' site off Chelford Road opposite the Cock Inn. Many local people attended the consultation (from 3pm to 7pm) at the Church Hall to ask questions of the Project Team. This was despite the fact that leaflets distributed to households in the area had the wrong date on them. Comments forms were available, but had run out by 5pm!
For those who weren't able to attend, this link to How Planning will allow you to submit comments online (click on "Feedback on this development"). You can also view all the information boards that were presented yesterday. Some of the boards are attached to this article below.
The proposals show a development of around 150 houses, with one exit onto Chelford Road, and another onto Whirley Road. Following these consultations, it is expected that a formal Planning Application will be submitted to Cheshire East. Henbury Parish Council are meeting on Monday to agree their response to the proposals.
Amongst other things, residents are concerned about increased traffic volumes onto Chelford Road and Whirley Road which will funnel into Broken Cross. This is already identified by Cheshire East as the worst area for traffic pollution in Macclesfield, and is an Air Quality Management Area.
Please make sure you submit your views and comments to How Planning before 25th July.
