Goostrey’s Mount Pleasant Residential Park (Tingdene Parks Ltd) applied for the demolition of 60 & 60a Main Road and the garage blocks to redevelop the site with 9 new park homes.
However Cheshire East refused the application yesterday, 25th January 2019, due to the proposal causing impaired efficiency of JBO.
They would be in a general area where the Jodrell Bank Observatory has found dwellings unacceptable in the past.
Unsurprisingly the Planning Statement stated that “it is not anticipated that its impact will be significant. It is unlikely to amount to material harm.” but JBO opposed the proposal.
Goostrey Parish Council also objected as it would conflict with Neighbourhood Plan Policy SC2 ‘Developments will not be permitted which can be shown to impair the efficient operation of the radio telescopes.’
