Detailed Plans Submitted to Cheshire East
Acting on behalf of the national housebuilders Taylor Wimpey, Redrow Homes and David Wilson Homes (DWH North West), HOW Planning has submitted a reserved matters planning application for a major new housing development in Nantwich, Cheshire.
The application for 997 new homes, which is the largest single reserved matters application ever to be submitted to Cheshire East Council, to be built on land at Kingsley Fields has been submitted to Cheshire East Council following approval of an outline scheme on the site, in January 2016.
The site occupies a highly sustainable location within easy walking distance to Nantwich town centre and a wide range of existing facilities, all of which will benefit from the new housing planned by the house builders. The housing will comprise a mix of detached, semi-detached, mid terrace and apartments on a 58 hectare site, with Taylor Wimpey delivering 366, Redrow 319 and DWH North West 312 new homes in a village environment.
Says Jon Suckley, Partner at HOW Planning: “The proposed development presents a fantastic opportunity for Cheshire East Council to assist with the delivery of much needed family homes in a highly sustainable location. The development by three of the UK’s leading residential developers has been carefully designed to a high standard, providing all the key elements to ensure the creation of a sustainable community.”
The development will also bring to fruition the current major investment programme at Reaseheath College. It will release capital to fund the building of the Agricultural Technology Centre, Halls of Residence, the extension to the Higher Education and Business Centre and the Health and Fitness Facilities at the College.
The College’s capital investment will be match funded by the Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) and augmented by commercial finance to deliver £31 million into improved educational facilities in Nantwich and to the benefit of the wider economy.
