Date: 22nd November 2016
Published by: David Naylor

This application has been withdrawn from Cheshire East's Northern Area Planning Comittee. It was due to be heard on Wednesday 30th November 10am at Macclesfield Town Hall.

To help fight the approval of this application the Town Council submitted further information including a transport assessment comissioned from Singleton Clamp and comparative survey information from a footfall and car access survey at the Bollington Co-op. It is assummed that in view of this the developer decided not to progress the application.

A new Planning Application was submitted by Cheshire Taverns Retirement Benefit Scheme, to build a new restaurant and convenience food store on the Bayleaf Lounge Site. This time the car parking has been increased because of the addition of land at the back of the butchers and the three courtesy pedestrian crossings now include a raised "table" element to reduce traffic speed.

The Town Council debated the matter at its Planning Meeting after the public meeting at Dean Valley School on Thursday 6th October. The public were welcome to stay on at Dean Valley for the planning meeting. The Council's recommendations to Cheshire East Council was a refusal based on the comments made at the public meeting (see the link above for the text of that recommendation).

The application was intended to be determined by delegated authority to the planning officer but Amanda Stott, Town Councilor and Cheshire East Council Bollington Ward Councillor, has called the application into a future Northern Area Committee now confirmed as 30th November 10am Macclesfield Town Hall
