Housing proposal in Whitfield

A bid to build 38 homes on a parcel of grazing land in Whitfield has been given the thumbs down by residents.

Bowsall Developments Ltd/Great Places Housing Group could also get the same response when their planning plea goes before the council’s development control committee on Tuesday.

High Peak Borough Council has received 165 letters and emails objecting to the group’s application to develop land north of St Mary’s Catholic School and Cliffe Road.

Councillors are being recommended to turn the application down.

The company is seeking permission to build: ten two bedroom houses, 22 three bedroom, five four bedroom and a three bedroom bungalow. A planted woodland buffer is also proposed.

The objections range from perceived traffic problems to a loss of green belt, an impact on wildlife and an increase in noise. There is also an objection from the school.
