CONTROVERSIAL plans to turn a former airfield site near High Legh into a two storey car park will be decided at a planning meeting this week.

An application to build a car park with space for 118 cars on the former Stretton Airfield also includes plans to build a private office building and a security lodge.

The construction of an access road from the former airfield runway to the proposed development and a 15 space external car park is also included in the final plans.

Concerns have been raised by residents over the extra pollution from cars, noise and the unsuitability of the roads with claims the proposal is not considered a sustainable form of development.

Appleton Parish Council, Antrobus Parish Council and High Legh Parish Council also object to the proposed plans.

But the council has received two letters of support for the blueprints with one claiming the airfield is used as a ‘dumping ground by fly tippers and having people on the site and landscaping the site would make it a better place’.

The plans have been listed for approval subject to conditions.
