Plans have been submitted for the erection of six houses on a plot of vacant land which was left to the RSPCA by a wild life enthusiast.
Deanbank Investments were declined planning permission in November 2018 to build a row of 8 three-bedroomed terraced houses along with 25 car parking spaces on the land off Heyes Lane.
The initial plans were 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.
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.
The revised scheme is for two rows of three houses on the vacant infill site with access to the development off Heyes Lane. Each house will have 4 bedrooms, one of which will be located in the loft space, and two parking spaces.
The plans can be viewed on the Cheshire East Council website by searching for planning reference 19/0684M.
