Willaston and Rope Ward UKIP Councillor Brian Silvester is delighted that another battle against a housing development in the green gap in Willaston has been won.
Brian said,” The proposal was to build 5 detached houses behind 44 Cheerbrook Road. (See plans attached above).
I am glad it has been refused because it is in the open countryside and the green gap, it is tandem development and the access down the side of the existing house was too narrow. The proposal was also unsustainable.
In the last year Conservative Councillors passed a housing application for 21 houses in the green gap off Cheerbrook Road in Willaston. Recently an application for 100 houses off Cheerbrook Road has been refused. We will have to be ready for a possible appeal for that and for this smaller application. Local people are getting punch drunk with application after application in the village. The sooner we have a Council that can deliver an Adopted Local Plan and a five year supply of housing, the better.It is about time that local people were in charge of development in their community and not the developers.”
