Planning Application on Land of Lynchet Road

At their meeting at 6:00pm on Monday 12th June the Parish Council will consider its response to the application for 17 dwellings on land of Lynchet Road.
See attached pdf extraordinary meeting agenda.

The development site lies within the adopted settlement boundary, and already has extant permission for 7 Dormer Bungalows, (15/04750/FUL granted on 13th July 2016) so the principle of permitted development on the site has already been established.

This application is still live and if a developer chooses to build 7 bungalows on the site they can do so without seek further approvals.

It is the Cheshire West and Chester (CWaC) Planning Authority and not the Parish Council that makes the decisions on planning applications, and they work to a presumption in favour of development after weighing up the potential harm against the benefits of any development.

There are only certain issues that would be considered as material and relevant to any planning applications.
These can be found at
