It is disappointing to see the ongoing lack of clear communication about the works that are currently taking place at the Chelford Road site. This is a particularly controversial development and it is vital that concerned local residents and Henbury Parish Council are made aware of what the developer, Bellway, is allowed to do at this stage, given that major conditions relating to the planning applications for the developments on Chelford Road have not been met. These conditions need to be discharged before development can commence.
I would urge Cheshire East Council to provide clear and timely updates relating to the latest activities at the site and also to take into consideration the developer’s latest actions when reviewing applications to discharge the relevant conditions, including those relating to peat management and improvements to Broken Cross roundabout. The Council and the developer need to be clear on next steps and they must be openly communicated to local residents – it is what they deserve.
