COUNCIL bosses took less than five minutes to approve a 94-house development in Marple, despite reservations from one resident.
Derek Swingler, who lives on Lyme Grove, slammed the project on Hibbert Lane, saying it was too close to his house.
The site, which borders Cheadle & Marple Sixth Form College, was at the centre of controversy in 2013 after a bid from Asda to build a supermarket on it.
That application was thrown out by councillors after protests.
But Stockport Council’s highways and planning committee unanimously approved the plans last week.
A spokesman for Morris Homes said plans for the development has were ‘positively received’ following an extensive three-stage public consultation.
Planning officer Emma Curle said the development would complement existing housing.
