Planning ref 15/3131C :
Jodrell Bank Observatory has objected to the planning application for 7 houses inbetween 51 and 61 Main Road which comes up for committee on 30th Sept. Permission was granted for 3 large detached houses in August 2014.
“The potential electrical interference generated from the new houses are of particular concern, because they lie to the south west of the observatory, less than 2 miles from the site. The telescope can only make many of its most important observations by pointing in this direction when it is very vulnerable to stray radiation from electrical devices on the ground.”
