Land Off School Lane
There have been two significant planning applications recently: 15/2274M and 15/5637M, each with the aim of putting up to 27 houses on the field in the centre of the village.
Marton Parish Council is opposed to this proposed development. 15/2274M was refused by the Cheshire East Northern Planning Committee in October 2015, and went to appeal; the appeal hearing was held in February 2016, and the case was referred to the Secretary of State for the final decision. The Secretary of State dismissed the appeal on 3 April 2017 and has refused to grant planning permission for these houses. HSL have the right to appeal this dismissal to the High Court if they do so within 6 weeks. A very similar planning application by HSL for 27 houses (15/5637M – later revised to 23 houses) was refused by Cheshire East on 16 August 2017. The developers have appealed against this decision.
