Proposed Stopping Up of Footpaths - Land Adjacent to Former Chadderton Sports Centre pdf icon PDF 515 KB

The purpose of this report is to approve the stopping up of footpaths that cross land adjacent to the former Chadderton Sports Centre, Chadderton, for the purpose of developing the area into a car park facility for a new conference / exhibition centre and restaurant


The Panel gave consideration to a report regarding stopping up of footpaths that cross land adjacent to the former Chadderton Sports Centre, Chadderton.


The former Chadderton Sports Centre and adjacent land had been purchased and planning consent (PA/339179/16) had been obtained for the conversion to a conference/exhibition centre and restaurant with associated car parking. The large grassed area designated to be a car park had a series of footpaths running through the site which connected Milne Street with Middleton Road and was utilised by members of the public. The footpaths therefore required stopping up due to the change in use of land. No detrimental effect would occur to pedestrians as the existing footways along Milne Street and Middleton Road were open for use.


Options considered.

Option 1: to approve the recommendation.

Option 2: not to approve the recommendation.


RESOVLED that, as per the recommendation, the footpaths detailed in the schedule within the report be stopped up under powers contained in section 257 of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990.
