Matthew introduced item 7 (APP/11/01050) – Manor Place, Bromborough, Wirral, CH62 4TU. This was for forty affordable homes two stories high. The planning application covered four sites, site 1 (land to the South of the Green), site 2 (a former allotment site on Manor Place), site 3 (land on Manor Place) and site 4 (land on York Street). The last site was partly allocated in the Unitary Development Plan. There was enough highway capacity for the extra traffic that would result and the design incorporated off street parking.
He said that this would allow a departure from the Unitary Development Plan subject to conditions to do with boundary treatment, a ground contamination survey and an extra condition that was material and specified on the late list.
The Chair asked if members of the committee had any comments?
Cllr John Salter asked (in reference to page 32 item 6) would the mature trees that would be removed put back or replaced with new trees? How would they keep a check to see the trees had been replaced?
Matthew replied that the application had been amended to remove the turning head, which would now not take place. York Street had been improved with significant tree planting planned and that was the reason behind the condition.
The Chair referred them to the top of page 33. Councillor Peter Johnson proposed approval.
