When the present Mickle Trafford Village was constructed in the 1970s a planning condition was placed on most properties that no fence, wall, gate or other means of enclosure shall be erected beyond the foremost wall of any dwelling which front on a highway without the consent of the District Planning Authority. This condition is still believed to be in force so if you are contemplating placing a fence in front of your house please check with the local planning authority, CWaC, first or else you may end up just having to take it down again.” For more information please look under the tab ‘Neighbourhood plan’ for an up to date paper on these subjects with a reflection on what was decreed way back in the conception of the two open plan estates.
