PARISH councillors will discuss the controversial planning applications for a care home and housing in Tarporley at Monday’s parish council meeting.
The two parallel planning applications have been submitted to Cheshire West and Chester Council for the land off Heatherways in the village by developers GB Development solutions.
The first application is for 33 dwellings with associated highways and landscaping. They have also submitted full planning application for the erection of a Continuing Care Retirement Community which consists of 75 close care units.
This is the third time GB Development Solutions has submitted plans for a CCRC for this site. The first plans were submitted in April 2008 for a large CCRC complex – these were withdrawn just days before they were due to go to planning committee.
Altered plans were then resubmitted in December 2008 for a 50-bedroom care home and 49 self-contained extra care units. But they were refused by the then Vale Royal Borough Council (VRBC) planning committee in March 2009.
Director of GB Development Solutions, Glenn Mills said they decided to submit the two parallel applications one for housing and the other for a care community in response to community feedback last time.
Tarporley Parish Council will be discussing the application at Mondays council meeting in the village community centre at 7pm.
