Despite valiant efforts by objectors, all three planning applications for developments on former Greenbelt around Chelford Road, were passed today by the Cheshire East Strategic Planning Board.
Those against included David Rutley MP, Henbury Parish Council, Save Macclesfield Greenbelt, the Henbury Society, many local residents and several local councillors who spoke on our behalf.
All three applications were passed by 7 votes to 3. Unfortunately, it appears that the majority of Board members chose to ignore the concerns raised regarding traffic, air pollution, lack of school places, flood risk etc etc.
Henbury Parish Council and others will now consider next steps.
