We were alerted today that members of the public wishing to respond to Gladman Development’s consultation should do so latest by Friday 24th January 2014:
By way of precision, Gladman’s issued this statement to the Town Council via the Town Clerk: “Please take this email as an assurance that all your formal comments following the public meeting on January 28th will be considered. The five week public consultation period will finish on Friday this week.”
Chair of Whaley Bridge Town Council, Cllr Martin Thomas, issued the following statement: “Gladman Developments have confirmed that they are intent on submitting an Outline Planning Application for the Linglongs Road/Macclesfield Road site. Therefore, I would encourage those who are likely to be affected by this possible development to submit their comments to Gladman’s (see link above) and to High Peak Borough Council (see below), and also to identify the mitigating steps they would like the eventual developer to take to minimise traffic disruption, damage to habitats, the landscape etc.
“A line of mature trees runs through this site and it would be a tragedy if this was lost.”
This site also has reappeared in the High Peak Local Plan:
People have until Monday 10 February to respond online via the link here, by email to LDF@highpeak.gov.uk or in writing to Regeneration, High Peak Borough Council, Town Hall, Buxton, Derbyshire, SK17 6EL. After this current consultation, the council will produce its final draft of the Local Plan. There will be consultation on the final draft.
