Housing Developments on Chelford Road

Henbury residents might be interested to know that a third planning application for a further housing development on former greenbelt land, north of Chelford Road, near Broken Cross, has been submitted to Cheshire East.

In addition, one of the original applications (17/4034M) has been re-opened for comments as the Planning Team have received additional highway and air quality information, as well as plans that were missing from the initial submission.

So there are now 3 Planning Applications awaiting decisions:

17/4034M – Application to build 232 homes between Chelford Road and Pexhill Road.

17/4722M – Application to build 135 homes opposite Cock Inn off Chelford Road

18/0294M – Latest application – to build 31 homes north side of Chelford Road near junction with Whirley Road

Henbury Parish Council continues to object strongly to each of these applications, on grounds of:

  • Traffic congestion on A537 and around Broken Cross
  • Resulting deterioration in air quality in the Broken Cross AQMA
  • Flood risk
  • Lack of supporting infrastructure eg school places, medical facilities

HPC have also contacted Cheshire East Planning to request that the cumulative impact of these 3 developments should be considered as a whole, and that they should all be heard at the same Strategic Planning Committee hearing.

In the latest news, we hear that How Planning (the company managing 2 of the applications) have now proposed replacing the Broken Cross roundabout with traffic lights, claiming that this will improve traffic flow.

If you would like to add your comments to either of the open Planning Applications, you can do so easily by clicking on these links
