    Question 11 seems to be the main one that effects the village . This is my response …. From the recent appeal in Goostrey ( TOWN AND COUNTRY PLANNING ACT 1990 – SECTION 78 APPEAL MADE BY GLADMAN DEVELOPMENTS LIMITED LAND OFF MAIN ROAD, GOOSTREY, CHESHIRE CW4 8LH APPLICATION REF: 14/5579C), the evidence presented indicates that current development in Goostrey village already exceeds the internationally agreed threshold for Radio Interference and is already impairing the efficiency of the telescope. Indeed the evidence presented indicates Goostrey alone is the main source of radio interference that is already restricting the research at Jodrell Bank Observatory. However Goostrey village , combined with Swettenham, Cranage and Twemlow has been made a Local Service Centre named ‘Goostrey Local Service Centre’ and hence has been targeted for further development. This further development appears to pose a significant risk to Jodrell Bank Observatory. It is understood that research by Jodrell Bank Observatory has produced mapping evidence of where development may pose unacceptable radio interference, with development nearer to the observatory posing the highest risk. This apparently has been produced to defend the telescope from predatory planning applications in the immediate vicinity of telescope. With Jodrell Bank’s permission this map should be included within the SADPD to guide where further development is/ and is not acceptable to the observatory. This will then give clarity to landowners and developers which sites can then be put forward that would not significantly impair on the research being undertaken and reduce the cost to developers and Jodrell Bank in promoting and defending unacceptable planning applications.
