On 23rd Sept 2014 Cheadle Parish Councillors proposed Cheadle Unite and the other action groups around Cheadle work together to stop excessive housing allocations landing on Cheadle.
The ‘Cheadle Unite Together’ group consists of the following (with links to a key contact):
Ashbourne Road Action Group. (Area 7)
Brookhouses Action Group. (Area 4a)
JMark Stanton (Chair of Group)
Jo Burgess (Secretary)
South West Action Group. (Area 4 or 5)
A Petition was already being presented with input from Bill Cash to prevent housing being built on the majority of Cheadle’s green fields. The Petition reads as follows and is as yet the best definition of the core agreed values of the above action groups:
To the House of Commons.
The Petition of residents of the constituency of Stone in Staffordshire,
Declares that residents of Cheadle oppose excessive levels of housing development; further that the Petitioners believe that the prospect of new site allocation plans is simply unacceptable; further that the Petitioners believe that permitting for 1,320 houses up to 2031 is still well above local demand and unworkable; further that the Petitioners believe that there is much opportunity to develop nearby regenerating sites and the Potteries with affordable housing in the heart of existing road, rail and canal infrastructure, while protecting the environment and agriculture; further that recent housing proposals have been submitted to Staffordshire Moorlands District Council to build up to 190 houses on land off Thorley Drive in Ashbourne Road; further that the Petitioners believe that the Thorley Drive site is inappropriate and it is currently a group of fields used, for example, for grazing; further that the Petitioners believe that the access to the Thorley Drive site is dangerous as it is already very difficult for drivers to get out of the end of Ashbourne Road; further that the Petitioner believe that the surrounding road network cannot support the increasing number of cars and traffic which relate to developing the town with housing completions and commitments to 240 dwellings the anticipated new allocation of 400 dwellings in urban areas and the new allocation of 240 dwellings north of Cheadle and further that the Petitioners believe there are not the facilities or the infrastructure in place for the proposed housing.
The Petitioners therefore request that the House of Commons urges the Department for Communities and Local Government to intervene in this matter to ensure that housing proposals that sit outside of currently identified sites for completions and commitments to 240 dwellings, the anticipated new allocations of 400 dwellings in urban areas and the new allocation for 240 dwellings north of Cheadle are rejected over the planning period until 2031 and further that the Petitioners request that the House urges the local council to reduce the housing allocation for Cheadle, preferably by moving a percentage to the Potteries and with no futher development of Greenfield sites.
And the Petitioners remain, etc.
