Application site address: CANAL STREET, MACCLESFIELD

 

What do you wish to do?: Make a general observation

 

Please make your comments: The proposal envisages the demolition of a non-residential building (now 

unused) and redevelopment of the site for residential purposes. This would be consistent with the mixed 

character of the area and the way in which redevelopment has proceeded on nearby sites in recent years. The 

design and external appearance or the dwellings reflect local building traditions albeit with a modern "take" in 

terms of elevations. A mix of 2 and 3 storey dwellings may be appropriate subject to an assessment of whether 

there would be undue dominance of adjacent or nearby dwellings.

 

The parking provision is on a ratio of 2 spaces per dwelling though several spaces may cause difficulties for 

drivers in terms of turning and manoeuvring - no doubt this will be assessed prior to a decision.
