Description & Location

The application site falls within the administrative region of Staffordshire County Council within the Borough of Newcastle under Lyme. Staffordshire County Council are the Highway Authority, Newcastle under Lyme Borough Council are the Local Planning Authority and United Utilities holds the licence to provide water and sewage services to around seven million people in north west England. The site is situated on the western edge of Madeley, adjacent to the established residential area off Moss Lane. Local amenities, schools and public transport are within a short walking distance of the site.

The site comprises part garden and part pasture and is 1.65 hectares (4 acres) in total area. It is almost rectangular, save for the part which provides the access from Rowley House garden. The landform of the site is in the main relatively level as it forms a shallow basin between Moss Lane, The Bridle Path and Bower End Lane which are substantially higher. The sides of the basin vary in gradient, the steepest being from The Bridle Path. The boundary of the site is made up of unmanaged hedgerows trees and fence lines. This leads to a well contained site defined by the Village Envelope and the existing field pattern.

The north eastern boundary of the site is defined by the existing fence lines, walls and hedges of the rear gardens on The Bridle Path. The eastern boundary is defined by the garden of Rowley House and Moss Lane. The southern boundary is defined by The Moss and the south western boundary is defined by Public Open Space. The western boundary is defined by pasture which is also the Green Belt boundary. Vehicular access to the site is currently via the garden of Rowley House off Moss Lane. Moss Lane is also a bus route.

Moss Lane is one of the main distributor roads in Madeley and is directly connected to the A525 Poolside, where the majority of local facilities are located. Moss Lane is also a bus route and contains the doctor's surgery. The closest retail facility is on Poolside near the end of Moss lane / Furnace Lane, 470 metres from the site. Other facilities are located along Poolside and Newcastle Road and a signalled pedestrian crossing provides safe access to these facilities.

There is public open space around Poolside and a childrens playground maintained by the Borough Council on College Gardens.
