Malpas Alport School Expansion
The planning application for the expansion of the Alport Primary School pupil capacity by 50% which includes the demolition of existing school house building, erection of new classrooms and support accommodation, extensions to existing school building and expansion of car park will be considered by at a special meeting of Malpas Parish Council on Monday May 22 at 7 pm in the Jubilee Hall, Malpas.
A similar plan was rejected last year by Malpas Parish Council and subsequently refused by Cheshire West and Chester Planning Committee for the following reasons:
1/ It is considered that the proposed development, by virtue of its scale, massing and design, would fail to preserve the character and appearance of the Malpas conservation area. The proposal fails to adequately reflect local character and to make a positive contribution to the significance of conservation area as heritage asset. The proposed development therefore fails to have regard to the provisions of the NPPF, policies ENV5 and ENV6 of the Cheshire West and Chester Local Plan (Part One) and Policy BE1 and BE2 of the Malpas and Overton Neighbourhood Plan.
2. It is considered that the additional traffic generated by the development cannot be accommodated safely and satisfactorily within the existing highway network. The proposed development therefore fails to have regard to the provisions of the NPPF and policy STRAT10 of the Cheshire West and Chester Local Plan (Part One).
All are welcome to attend and speak for or against the new application.
