Comments made: The Civic Society rarely comment on applications in neighbouring parishes to Macclesfield but this proposal would affect the setting and character of the town and the outlying settlements. At a point where the intensity of development eases the current scheme would appear over intensive in relation to its site and the character of development opposite. The layout is akin to ribbon development along a main road, something that general planning control was adopted in 1947 to control and prevent such developments which had occurred in the 1920s and 30s. If development is to proceed then the density should be reduced and the layout amended as suggested in other representations.
