Residents urged to have their say on housing plan

Whaley Bridge residents are being urged to have their say on plans to build over 100 houses in the town.

Campaign group Whaley Bridge Matters are encouraging locals to comment on an application by Gladman Developments for 107 homes on a site between Linglongs Road and Macclesfield Road, known in the local plan as C9.

Comments must be made to High Peak Borough Council before the end of April.

Chairman Kevin Worthington said: “Don’t think that just because you have already registered your objections, that’s it.

“I’m sorry to say we need to do it all over again, with as much spirit as we showed earlier this year.

“This will be our final effort - we need to flood the planning office with our objections.”

He added: “The local plan for site C9 is to build 84 houses. Gladman’s plan is for 107 houses! But we can beat their plan if we all work together, pointing out the ludicrous nature of their proposal. If it went ahead, it would ruin the Gateway to the Goyt and the national park.”

The application can be seen on High Peak Borough Council’s website, www.highpeak.gov.uk, by searching using the reference code HPK/2014/0119.
