Culcheth homes plans thrown out
9:10am Tuesday 30th October 2012 in News
PLANS to build 26 homes in Culcheth have been thrown out by borough councillors.
Members of the development management committee voted to block the scheme led by Redrow Homes to build 26 homes on land facing Doeford Close.
Almost 50 residents packed the Town Hall for the meeting.
Residents and councillors voiced concerns over traffic, parking and health and safety from the nearby Orica UK explosives depot.
Clr Chris Vobe (Lab - Culcheth, Glazebury and Croft) said: "This was a tremendous victory for local people, who have fought tirelessly to protect this important green space from development.
"Arguments put forward by parish councillors and I illustrated the array of problems that an additional 26 properties would bring. Councillors made the right decision by rejecting Redrow's application.”
