Proposed Development on the site of the 'Good Companions'.

Our Ref: F/11/00/06
Plan No. 32567/3
Particulars: Sheltered housing at former Good Companions Public House site off London Road, Holmes Chapel.

Holmes Chapel Parish Council has objected to this application on the following grounds:

1. The loss of a retail/commercial site and the car parking which would accompany a retail development in the village centre.

2. There is evidence of lack of need for elderly persons accomodation in Holmes Chapel.

3. There is evidence of need for low cost housing; this need would not be satisfied by this proposal.

4. Local planning policy suggests that if a site is not designated for housing in the Local Plan then it would not normally be granted planning permission.

5. In any event, the proposal is too intensive and too intrusive on the street scene. In particular, three-storey building would not be acceptable.

6. Facilities in the village centre, in particular the Health centre, are not adequate.

7. Although the development does not anticipate a lot of cars, they would be additional to existing traffic levels.
