Shear Brook comments extended to Feb19th

Cheshire East have extended the time period for comments to 19th February.   This is because they omitted to advertise the fact that the proposed site is in close vicinity of Swanwick Hall which is a Heritage Asset, being a Grade II listed building.  Also Jodrell Bank, less than 2 miles from the site and inside Goostrey Parish, is a Grade I listed building and also on the UK short list for UNESCO World Heritage Site status.

However the committee date is still scheduled for the 18th Feb – so get your comments to them in good time!

Shear Brook Action Cttee suggest that “comments/objections to applications affecting listed buildings can include things like adverse impacts on their “setting” – e.g. interfering with the “the surroundings in which the asset is experienced” (the Gladman field is part of the historical Swanwick Hall Farm, and Jodrell Bank is currently clearly visible across the Gladman field from the Public Footpath), or on the asset’s “social or economic viability” (e.g. interference with the Lovell may affect the telescope’s future viability and education work). If you do wish to object on this Heritage Asset point we suggest you put in another e-mail.”

Share and Enjoy !

    This is outrageous how can our tiny village cope with anymore housing?? The school is full there are simply no facilities for any more residents and to increase the traffic through the village would be detrimental to village life not to mention dangerous
