From the Wavertree Society's Newsletter 153 (January 2005):

Sandown Hall goes to
the High Court

On 10th November 2004 the Inspector who had been appointed to consider the Sandown Hall planning application (see last Newsletter) issued his decision: he REFUSED to allow the former Wavertree listed building to be re-erected on a site in the North Cheshire Green Belt.
David Stagg - the Macclesfield businessman who had planned to rebuild Sandown Hall as his family home in Nether Alderley - has now decided to challenge the Inspector's decision in the High Court.

The grounds of the challenge are that in his report - which is reproduced on our website - the Planning Inspector took into account matters which were not the subject of debate at the Public Inquiry, and failed to take account of evidence (notably that of Florence Gersten) which was put forward in support of the proposal. We await the outcome with interest.
