Staffordshire Moorlands District Council are proposing to build up to 1,350 new houses in Cheadle up to 2031
They claim this is to meet housing needs, although according to the latest 2012 population figures from the Office for National Statisitics the population is decreasing in Staffordshire Moorlands and the latest 2015 Local Government Figures indicate SMDC only need 2570 houses to meet local demand across the Moorlands but SMDC are planning 6000+ Houses.
The Following are a number of key points and reasons for objecting to the excessive levels of housing proposed for Cheadle (1350+ dwellings to 2031). Please add those that you agree with to your response ideally in your own words. How to access the representation form to make objections is detailed lower down.
There are 8 Sections in the Consultation, you don’t need to fill out all sections,

Section 1) Site Options
Section 5) Review of Policy Areas
