Initial Response to Cheshire East Council on safeguarded land at Cloughside Farm

Site Allocation Development Policy Consultation – Disley and Newtown

At the meeting of the Parish Council held on Wednesday 10th October 2018, a large number of residents attended to voice their concerns about Cheshire East’s proposal set out in the draft Site Allocations Development Policy to allocate land at Cloughside Farm in Disley as safeguarded land.

Residents’ concerns related to the following:

  1. The potential use of land in the green belt
  2. The proposed access to the site is in an unsuitable and dangerous place on a narrow road in a blind spot adjacent to the canal bridge and the only alternative access is privately owned. The canal bridge is also a listed bridge and already subject to increases in traffic flow. Residents are already very concerned about safety on Redhouse Lane with the increase in traffic from the new housing estate still under development together with more through traffic now using Redhouse Lane as a cut through to Marple and New Mills
  3. The short timescale provided for commenting on the consultation and lack of publicity

In view of these representations which we continue to receive, the Parish Council is submitting this as an initial response to the consultation and to confirm our intention to provide a more informed response to Cheshire East Council soon after the closing date.
