We, the undersigned, object to the planning application by Persimmon Homes on land off Midland Road, for the following reasons:

Historical contaminated land (asbestos, heavy metals, lead, arsenic, cadmium, hydrocarbons, mercury most in elevated levels) to be remediated in an inadequate and unsafe fashion posing a risk to health if disturbed.

o Reprofiling already waterlogged land

o Potentially contaminated dust drifting in prevailing winds

o Already congested roads

o 4 years of works traffic in a family neighbourhood – ie elderly residents, local school children routes to school etc

o Heavy demands on local amenities – schools, doctors, dentist, hospitals with the addition of over 200 new homes

o Too many developments on historically contaminated land which have led to housing problems e.g. school in Reddish

o Loss of privacy and visual amenity

o Concerns around methane venting system around the development on the boundaries of existing gardens

o The proposed leachate ditch and pumping system – situated dangerously

o Stockpiling of top soil forcing leachate sideways into exiting gardens
