Waste centre set to be approved again – despite objections

PLANNING consent for the controversial household waste recycling centre at Frodsham looks set to be granted for a further three years – despite opposition from the Town Council.
Seven other objections have been lodged – but Cheshire West and Chester’s planning committee is being recommended to approve the further temporary consent.
Frodsham Town Council wants the approval to be for one year only to give time to find an alternative site.
The present site, near Frodsham railway station and with access from Church Street has existed under a succession of temporary consents for at least 25 years.
Objectors say an alternative site, out of the town centre, should be found and the present site used for parking.
They argue that the existing site is unsightly, causes highways and health safety issues, congestion, vehicle conflict and smells.
But Cheshire West highways and environmental health chiefs have no objections to the centre remaining in its present location for another three years.
A report to be considered by planning chiefs points out that a search for a suitable alternative site has proved unsuccessful,
A series of conditions to minimise problems at the site will remain in force including the sheeting of open topped vehicles taking waste from the site and measures to prevent windblown material.
