Outline planning proposal for 8 houses on the site of The Grange livery’s stables and menage off Station Road. Goostrey PC have voted to object and Jodrell Bank Observatory have strongly opposed the proposal.
Link to application: 18/4079C
The CEC planning page states that the decision, moved to 9th November, is by ‘delegated authority’ rather than committee. Cllr Kolker points that if CEC are minded to approve then the application will probably go before committee.
As the site is a mere 1.75 km of open countryside from the Lovell telescope, and given recent refusals and dismissed appeals in the village following JBO objections, it could be argued that going to Committee would be preferable.
Surprisingly, the proposal includes a report from engineers that puts forward the case that houses and their occupants would create less electrical interference than current activities at the livery stables and yard. Their report does not detail, however, what equipment and power tools were running during the hours of the test.
