Council warns of crackdown on developers who flout rules

Cheshire East Council is warning developers to stick to their promises when it comes to planning conditions – or face a crackdown to halt developments.

Councillor Toni Fox, the authority’s cabinet member for planning, said tough enforcement action will be taken if developers continue to flout agreements and treat planning conditions ‘as a tick-box exercise’.

Cheshire East remains one of the busiest planning authorities in the country and has been subject to a significant number of housing applications.
