A relatively quick Cheadle Area Committee for August – the meeting lasted just over an hour.
- We were told the law around fly-tipping has now been changed so the council can issue fixed penalty notices rather than having to take people to the magistrates court.
- We were told that in Cheadle, council officers seized a TV from a property after persistent complaints that the volume was on far too loud and the owners failing to respond to requests to turn it down.
- We received a petition from residents of Carlton Avenue who want to have speed humps put in when their road is resurfaced.
- Planning application 57891 – new house in the back garden of 14 Lynton Vale Avenue – was deferred until the next meeting in September. This was due to an error by planning officers. The land partially falls in the conservation area but this had been missed, so it needs to be re-advertised with the correct information.
- Planning application 58373 – 14 new affordable houses on the old bowling green behind the Cross Keys Hotel, 10 Adswood Road, Cheadle Hulme – was recommended for approval. The final decision will be made at the council’s full Planning & Highways committee.
- Planning application 58609 – replace 2 x 7-a-side grass pitches at the South Manchester Sports Club on St Ann’s Road North with 3 x 5-a-side 3G pitches – was granted. We noted that the number of potential users will increase from 28 to 30 and that the new floodlights will be lower than the old ones: 12m rather than 15m high. The agent also said they were happy to plant evergreens on the border to shield the view in winter.
- We agreed the application to hold the North Region BMX Club Championships at the BMX track in Bruntwood Park on 27th September.
- We took an emergency item – new parking restrictions around the site of the new Oak Tree Primary School (on the site of Queens Road Primary School). We agreed the proposed new restrictions which will now be legally advertised.
Here are the details of the new parking restrictions:
