The indicative layout for Outline Planning now shows 13 homes (one extra) being proposed by Crabtree Homes Ltd for land to the east of Hermitage Lane, with access off Nether Lea. (see layout below). The mound to the east (allegedly to deflect interference to JBO) has been removed.
The decision, by delegated authority, has been moved to the end of March 2019.
Link to application: 18/4980C
Before these changes Goostrey Parish Council had objected – as had JBO. Jodrell Bank Observatory were also opposed to a previous application for 26 homes at this location (Ashalls submitted a different proposal in 2014 – 14/1964C ; refused and then withdrawn before appeal).
“The development will provide a mixture of market and affordable homes enhancing the land which has previously been used for agriculture and is currently empty .” Design & Access, Crabtree Homes.
