If I was them I would put in an appeal even if I thought another option may be forthcoming.      There are methods to delay an appeal that has started while other options are considered.

The Marple Wharf planning application was refused by Marple Councillors last night.

It was interesting that Cllr Allan excluded himself from taking part in the decision making process because he is involved in an ongoing proposal for community use of the former warehouse. CRT also acknowledged that there is a scheme being discussed but obviously wanted to press ahead with this application to convert to a domestic dwelling. It will be even more interesting to see if this proposal develops into something that can be included in a revised planning application or if CRT decide that their next step is to appeal.

I hope CRT takes into account the strong community feelings on this, even if they consider that planning law will be on their side in an appeal.

You can watch proceeding back here:

For me, this article demonstrate what is wrong with CRT's plans for the warehouse at Marple Wharf:

In this article about the conversion of a very similar canal side wharf at Froghall Basin their property surveyor says "The Trust works hard to make the most of all our unusual canalside buildings. Our aim is to celebrate our rich waterway heritage by supporting sensitive restorations and finding new 21st century uses for these wonderful structures."

Why have they not been able to apply that in Marple? I understand that compared to Marple, Froghall Basin is a quiet and out-of-the-way location.

Have just received a notification from the Council's Planners that amended plans have been submitted and these will be available on the portal in the next 5 to 7 days.

They are proposing another round of consultations with a deadline of 14 April 2018.

I can't see the new plans yet but will provide a link if I spot them.

Surprised, as I have been all to often in the past, by the bizarre collection of opinions this forum attracts when a very worthy cause presents itself.

So I presume Dave, amazon, etc you’re gleefully awaiting the “for sale” sign to go up on this residential conversion? And none of us will EVER be able to step inside? Why?! If you (clearly) don’t care about the building, why bother posting.

1000+ signatures don’t paint the same picture of public opinion...
you have had longernough to decide you want to step inside .

I've lived in Marple for (almost) all of my 43 yrs (had 4 years out in the middle somewhere). I've never stepped foot inside, nor am I aware of any opportunity to have ever stepped inside. I don't quite see what we're supposedly losing.

The building isn't being demolished, and it will have owners who have a vested interest in it's upkeep (as it'll literally be the roof over their heads). What's the problem here, other than, "change".

Does that really mean the best financial deal? That would be insane.

Yes that is exactly what it means, and anyone who has ever been the trustee of a charity knows it perfectly well.  The same applies to public sector and semi-public sector bodies - local authorities, colleges, hospitals, academy schools etc.

So I presume Dave, amazon, etc you’re gleefully awaiting the “for sale” sign to go up on this residential conversion? And none of us will EVER be able to step inside? Why?! If you (clearly) don’t care about the building, why bother posting.

On the contrary, as I have said more than once in this thread, I would be delighted to see the building converted into a visitor centre.  The point I am making is that Marple Civic Society stated their intention back in 2010 to apply for Heritage Lottery funding to do exactly that (see http://www.marplecivicsociety.org.uk/A%20Vision%20for%20Marple_with%20front%20page%20picture_website.pdf), but then, as far as we can tell, they never got around to it.   Now someone else comes along with another scheme, which the society then tries to stop.

I think 'dog in a manger' is the phrase, isn't it?
