Surname: SMITH (FOR MACCLESFIELD CIVIC SOCIETY)
Your address: 57 Orme Crescent, Macclesfield, SK10 2HU
Application reference number: 18/5580M
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.
