Working as a community to stop the development of 900 homes and re-open the Gorstyhill golf course

Wychwood Planning Update – 11th February 2015

Leave a comment

Time is fast running out to OBJECT against plans to build 900 dwellings plus employment, leisure, supermarket, primary school and residential home on the site of the ex-Gorstyhill Golf Course.

When should I object?

You should OBJECT NOW, don’t delay! We have had feedback from the Council and there is a pressing need to get the volume of our objections into them ASAP to help strengthen our case.

How do I object?

Visit the planning application page here, http://planning.cheshireeast.gov.uk/ApplicationDetails.aspx?pr=14/5671N

Simply click ‘Comment on this application’ (on the right hand side) and fill in the required boxes. Don’t forget to select ‘Object to the proposal’ (default is ‘No Selection made’).

The deadline is Wednesday 25th February 2015 at noon. Don’t delay.

Objecting is simple, it takes just a few minutes and doesn’t require any complicated login process.

Here are some key planning points you may wish to raise as part of your submission, https://wychwoodvillage.files.wordpress.com/2015/02/key-objections.pdf

Who can object?

Everyone in your household can OBJECT if they have an opinion on this application, so don’t just submit a single objection, submit for all members of your household.

Once you’ve done that, get in touch with your friends and family; have them OBJECT too if you feel this development would impact upon their enjoyment of the area.

If each household submits 4 objections (or more), we’ll have thousands by the deadline which will make a huge statement to the decision makers. Quality is most important, but quantity certainly makes them sit up and take notice!

Need further help?

Following feedback received, there are quite a few people struggling to get their objections completed.

For this reason we will be opening the doors of the Wychwood Village Hall this Sunday 15th February between 10am and 1pm to offer help and guidance.

We will be armed with a couple of laptops to help you submit your objections there and then, and can also help submit on behalf of your friends and family if you have their consent and bring along their details.

We will also be spreading the word by handing out flyers from the gates of the Hall to passers-by on foot and in cars, so if you can spare an hour on Sunday morning to help, we’d appreciate it.

You can of course also email us at any time for assistance completing your objections. Please don’t leave it until last minute, the committee have a significant volume of work to do on the ‘group objection’ so it would be great to know the residents are one step ahead.
