Jack critical of Meadow Lane development decision

Jack has today stated his criticism of the decision of The Planning Inspectorate to grant at appeal planning permission for 227 new houses off Meadow Lane in Trentham, contrary to the City Council’s earlier refusal of permission.

 

Jack said “I am shocked by the Planning Inspectorate’s decision to grant permission for more than 200 new houses off Meadow Lane, against the wishes of the local council, of me and both local councillors, and most importantly the residents of the Meadow Lane estate.

 

“The amount of extra traffic which this will generate will have a significant, negative impact on many of my constituents’ quality of life, and poses safety concerns at the junction with Longton Road.

 

“I will be working closely with Cllrs Daniel Jellyman and Rachel Kelsall, and the City Council, to ensure that the developer takes all the action which it has promised to mitigate the effects of both the construction and residential traffic which this will generate. Whilst this will never fully mitigate these effects, we will ensure that the needs and concerns of the existing residents of Meadow Lane are not forgotten.”
