Thank you, you are clearly more versed with the planning application forms.

The previous post wasn't intended to be point scoring.

The actual point being the individual's or entity behind the proposed development are the sole beneficiaries of the development proposal, which has been designed to exploit the potential opportunity.

Not Poynton, not the local residents, and not the wider public, who flock to the area for peace, tranquillity, leisure pursuits and time out.

Should the out of character development be approved, it will be interesting to see if the properties realise the values the development team are aspiring to achieve.

Recent developments of this type around the Poynton area, do not appear to be in high demand.

No point scoring intended. Just realisation of the changing times & developing society we live in. As a Poyntonian(Peyntener) born & bred,are u? I've seen much change & development in my life, Wimpey, Fleetbank, Waterloo, Towers Rd, Bird, etc. The new development plan, to cope with demand is infill so plots like Alec's are the way it's going, sad but true, they are the modern Elms Bed Rd, Lyme Rd, Shrig Rd Sth & Shrig Rd Nth. There will be more..........

By heck there's a common sense reply,
The frequent emphasis seems to be on brownfield/Previously developed land which is exactly what the bungalow plot is ?
The development may be a bit giddy for the plot but most people probably couldn't give a toss unless it directly affects them, rather there than near them.
As alluded to earlier i could also see the whole St Martins plot going the same way similar to the old church hall up by the Miners arms. The biggest issue to my mind if that ever happened would be the loss of the fantastic annual St Martins bonfire :cry:

Brownfield / GreenBelt...

Our initial post on this forum was to raise further awareness on application submitted for 18 Shrigley Road North

Seems fair that local residents are given the opportunity to question, and raise concerns on any planning applications, that's the process.

Local councillors met with MP David Rutley recently to set out how they want people in Poynton to have a greater say in the planning of further development in the area. http://poynton-post.co.uk/mp-meets-poyn ... ocal-plan/

Grounds on which planning permissions are most likely to be refused (list not intended to be definitive)

• Adverse effect on the residential amenity of neighbours
• Unacceptably high density / over-development of the site
• Visual impact of the development
• Effect of the development on the character of the neighbourhood
• The proposed development is over-bearing, out-of-scale or out of character in terms of its appearance compared with existing development in the vicinity
• The loss of existing views from neighbouring properties would adversely affect the residential amenity of neighbouring owners
• The development would adversely affect highway safety or the convenience of road users [but only if there is technical evidence to back up such a claim]

'Common sense' brings into question all of the above.

Yes, and it also begs the question do you think all new house/home building should stop once "you have a house" or "if affects you", because some of those points raised will apply to every single development.

Anyway are we discussing Greenfield or Greenbelt which are different things ?
You can have brownfield/PDL development in the GREENBELT, and you can have development rights within greenfield sites much easier than within greenbelt sites (see south Cheshire for examples).
I'm just glad I live in a house and my kids are reasonably sorted given the rampant frothing against new/redeveloped houses (or eco friendly cabins) etc.

Apologies title corrected to BELT

Are we all sure the design, size and price point of the recent spate of development in the area is actually what the population needs?

Market indicators would suggest not.

The greed of developers should be challenged otherwise we erode our green and pleasant land.

And while considering this development.... An old planning app. Approved 2007! :o pops up six houses on spring bank farm. :roll:
Nothing more dangerous that a sleeping planning app ticking time bomb not on today’s radar. :shock:

Just to clarify, that's the one on Coppice Road not the one on Springbank Lane.
