LOCATION Market Drayton is a popular North Shropshire market town on the Staffordshire/Cheshire borders. It is on the River Tern, between Shrewsbury and Stoke on Trent and was formerly known as Drayton in Hales and is listed in the Domesday Book. In 1245 King Henry III granted a charter for the weekly Wednesday market, giving the town its current title. The market is still held every Wednesday. The Shropshire Union Canal runs through the town and Market Drayton offers a wide variety of amenities such as schools, specialist and high street shops, supermarkets and health and leisure facilities. The larger centres of Newcastle under Lyme, The Potteries, Crewe, Stafford, Telford and Shrewsbury are all within commutable distance.

Condition number 4 states: 'As the site is inappropriate for an independent unit of accommodation in addition to the main dwelling and such development would be detrimental to highway safety and the amenities of existing and future residents. The proposed additional living accommodation for the applicants family's needs shall be occupied and maintained as part of the main dwelling and when the special need for the annex ceases, it shall be used by the excising dwelling as ancillary residential accommodation and shall not be let, sold or otherwise disposed of to form a separate dwelling'.
