Plans to build 8 new houses off Heyes Lane have been refused by Cheshire East Council.
Deanbank Investments have been declined planning permission to build a row of 8 three-bedroomed terraced houses along with 25 car parking spaces, on a plot of vacant land which was left to the RSPCA by a wild life enthusiast.
It has been refused on the grounds that, due to its scale, layout and landscaping, the proposal "would result in a car-dominated, overbearing development of poor design which would result in a strong impression of overdevelopment visible in the surrounding built context".
The planning officer also stated that the proposed development would fail to achieve a satisfactory level of privacy between the proposed dwellings within the site, and between a number of properties along Oakfield Road and Oakfield Close.
Additionally the pedestrian access was considered insufficient, the car parking spaces inadequate in size and manoeuvrability for vehicles infront of the proposed dwellings would be very tight.
The final reason given was that insufficient information was submitted relating to flood risk to enable the Council to adequately access the risk of surface water flooding and drainage within the site.
