Netherlea appeal details

The statement of the case for the appeal against the refusal of 26 houses on Netherlea/Hermitage Lane has now been published in CEC’s planning page:

Statement of case

Cheshire East’s lack of a 5 year housing supply is obviously mentioned but so is the appeal against the refusal of 13 houses in Twemlow in 2013 when the main issue was “the effect of the proposal on the efficient operation of Jodrell Bank Observatory (JBO) and whether this effect would significantly and demonstrably outweigh the benefits that would result from the proposed development.”

The Inspector stated at that appeal “that it has not been demonstrated that the proposal would have any unacceptable effect on the efficient operation of Jodrell Bank Observatory”, 2.7km away.

Planning refused October 2014:

Netherlea/Hermitage Lane outline proposal for 26 houses was resubmitted and refused Oct2014 under planning reference: 14/1964C

Reasons for refusal of the original application were based on the site being in Open Countryside and that Cheshire East could demonstrate a 5 year supply of housing land.  However CEC does not currently have a 5yr supply and is reviewing the Local Plan.
