Dawn Ward's Wedding Venue Proposal Rejected By Planning Committee!

Back in May, it was reported that Dawn Ward submitted plans to add a conference and wedding venue in her £13.5m ($19M USD) mansion, but her neighbors were not too thrilled with her idea. According to a new report, the Planning Committee rejected the Real Housewives of Cheshire's proposal.

Wilmslow Guardian reports that despite recommending acceptance of the plan by East Cheshire Council officers the planning committee had other ideas and rejected Ward's proposal.

And what was the reason behind the rejection? Ward's neighbors!

Great Warford Parish Council, Nether Alderley Parish Council and Little Warford Parish Council complained about increased levels of noise and traffic in the Green Belt and knock effects to surrounding areas.

A total of 236 people in neighboring properties also raised objections with just one in support of the proposal.

The change of use from a dwelling with offices to dwelling with function room and ancillary facilities include 19 double bedrooms enabling up to 38 wedding guests to stay overnight on site on the 12.5 acre site. It also includes the construction of a previously approved extension with glazed links to the property.

Under the plan a total of 100 events annually would have been held in one of the sleepiest parts of the Cheshire countryside, including 60 weddings.

It would have involved people, (up to 130) being shipped in to weddings, bootcamps conferences and seminars in mini buses and vehicles, because of limited parking at the hall, reports Wilmslow Guardian.

“It’s like a witch-hunt. It’s unbelievable. Fair enough (to complain) if you are local, but we are getting complaints as far as Tytherington. How it can affect people as far away as Tytherington I have not idea. It’s ludicrous,” Ward told Manchester Evening News back in May when she fist submitted the wedding venue proposal. She added: “Neighbors don’t like noise. I understand.”
