Tattenhall Housing Sites Co-joined Planning Appeal

Jon King was instructed by Cheshire West and Chester Council to provide landscape evidence at Public Inquiry, dealing with the key issues which included; the context of three development sites and the relationship with the surrounding landscape character of the area, the visual and landscape impacts generated by the schemes as well as the cumulative landscape and visual impacts generated by the schemes.

He concluded that cumulative landscape and visual impacts would be generated by implementation of two or all the schemes. This would lead to a significant increase in overall landscape and visual impact over and above the impacts that would be generated by the schemes in isolation.

In addition it was his opinion that both individually and cumulatively there would be a conflict with policies ENV2, which states that development should respect the key features of the landscape and not be detrimental to its character.

The inspector’s decision is pending due to judicial review of the Local Neighbourhood Plan which aims to limit the size of housing development within Tattenhall.
