The next item to be considered was item 7 – APP/11/00487 – Cleared Site, ORRETS MEADOW ROAD, WOODCHURCH, CH49 9BJ – Proposed development of 14no. 3bedroom houses.
The officer said it was for fourteen two storey dwellings, there were restrictions on housing in the area and the interim housing policy applied. However the applicant had shown there was a local housing need for affordable housing. The design was acceptable and it was recommended for approval subject to a s.106 agreement.
Cllr Mitchell said there had been a series of similar applications in the area, but the original approved layout had not been adhered to. He hoped the applicant and agent would adhere to the layout recommended by Wirral Council. He said there would be a benefit to double-check this otherwise it would be a fait accompli. He asked if a condition could be added?
The officer said the developer was tied into the plans by the decision notice, however there could be a special decision regarding the plans however it was not normal to check.
Cllr Mitchell said it had been done last time.
The Chair said on this occasion they should consider it.
The officer said they’d put an informative in [as part of the decision notice]. The Chair said he was happy. Cllr Mitchell and Cllr Salter recommended it for approval. All councillors voted for it.
