It has been a long time coming but June will finally bring the McCarthy and Stone planning application for the former Royal Oak site on Commercial Road to Area Committee.
Minor changes have been made to the design of the application to help meet planning officers concerns but it is not yet clear if all of issues that could stop the plans have been met.
The application can be seen on the Council’s website at: http://planning.stockport.gov.uk/PlanningData-live/applicationDetails.do?activeTab=neighbourComments&keyVal=P08J1SPJLSQ00
With the consultation period now closed, interestingly it appears that only four members of the public have put in objections to the plans while eight people have offered supportive comments.
Some of the major areas of contention with the design that are relevant to a planning decision are:
Council officers advice will be vital, as to whether the application has met legal requirements, but it is certainly not clear cut and could come down to individual councillor opinions.Leave a comment
