Land at Hazelbadge road consultation event.

Postby ma-ogy » Tue Jun 27, 2017 10:53 am

We have just received a flyer from Persimmon Homes inviting people to a community consultation event regarding their proposed development of land off Hazelbadge road.
Proposal 150 homes 45 of which to be affordable (what does affordable mean :?:

The event will be held at the Civic Hall Park Lane Poynton on Wednesday 5th July 2017 time 2pm to 7pm.


Should be interesting.

Affordable usually means social housing, at least it does outside London and National Parks. The plans are about what you'd expect for a mass-market builder.

There are a few 'interesting' items in the consultation.
  • The idea is to widen the road junction at Chester Road and Hazelbadge Road to allow more cars (two exit lanes). They are also creating a curved junction rather than a square one, to allow cars to turn into and out of the road at a faster speed. Of course this will also significantly reduce the space for pedestrians, and make the junction more difficult to cross for pedestrians. Just the thing for the main walking route to Lower Park school and the station!
  • The development goes right up to the railway station but there is no access to the station. Bit of a missed opportunity to provide a nice walking/cycling route there I think. Same on the Glastonbury road side.
  • The council's strategic plan mentioned that the plot of land should have a 'hard' border, i.e. completely built along, in order to discourage development further north of the site. The current proposed plan shows Hazelbadge Road terminating at the border, in other words allowing access for development of the field next to Lower Park Road too.
  • They appear to actually be encouraging parents to drive to the school by putting in new parking for it, despite the catchment area being small, and being against current environmental/health thinking. This is mainly because otherwise Hazelbadge Road would be too narrow - the new estate would become completely blocked at least twice a day!
  • They acknowledge that the area is a flood risk (witness last year's floods) but don't seem to be putting in any mitigation.
  • One of the maps showing local facilites shows a Sainsburys in Adlington Industrial Estate. Either a mistake or a preview of things to come?

This is very interesting. Hopefully not priced on the Woodford Scale of housing.

Also I believe any new developments have to have a certain amount of 'affordable' housing. Generally these are shared equity or similar.

'Affordable' means subsidised: official. All properties are affordable by somebody of course but the word hides the fiscal reality. Building regulations (the carbon neutral demands etc. ) add a considerable cost to new properties.

Poynton is becoming just another conurbation.

and when they do, how will they get there if they have no other transport than Public Transport if they take the P1 away?
