PLANS for nine new houses have been rejected again due to the lack of information surrounding the environmental impact.

The proposal was originally rejected in 2018 due to poor design. After this it was adjusted and resubmitted in January 2019.

Daniel Evans, case officer, said: “It is not considered that the designs of the proposals are of an appropriate quality or character that are respectful to their location. Furthermore, the proposals would create harm the setting of the designated Trent and Mersey Canal Conservation Area.”

The design of the houses still caused concerns due to the negative impact it could have on the appearance of the area.

Daniel Evans added: “The layout proposals would also result in an unsatisfactory level of amenity for the future occupiers of the dwellings proposed on plots seven and eight due to the proximity to these dwellings to the dwelling proposed on plot nine.”

Environmental Health recommended the proposal for refusal.

A spokesman said: “Insufficient information has been submitted with the application, in order to adequately assess the impact of the proposed development having regard to traffic noise and noise from existing commercial sources The Boars Head and The Kinderton.

“In the absence of this information, it has not been possible to demonstrate that the proposal would comply with material planning consideration.”
