LETTER: Criticism of housing plans

STOCK:  housing.
STOCK: housing.

Not content with upsetting Buxton residents with a third planning application (HPK/2015/0573) to build houses at Westhills, Macclesfield Old Road, a sensitive site right on the edge of Burbage, Persimmon Homes through an application for a screening option (HPK/2016/0008) reveal their intention to cover more green fields in Burbage. Their proposed planning application is expected to seek outline consent for the erection of up to 120 dwellings on a 6.56 hectare piece of land bounded by Leek Road, Cat and Fiddle Road and the Carr Road Estate.

This is another cynical attempt by Persimmon to grab greenfield land before the High Peak Local Plan is accepted. Comments can be made on the following web pages :-
