Plans Submitted for Sandbach Housing
Acting on behalf of Thornhill Holdings Ltd, Manchester based HOW Planning has submitted an outline planning application for a new residential development in Sandbach, Cheshire, comprising up to 56 new homes.
Securing planning permission from Cheshire East Council will help to support the long term future of the site, which sits within Sandbach’s settlement boundary. The new housing will replace the existing, outdated employment accommodation, which is currently occupied by Core Fulfilment Ltd who are soon to move to more modern and suitable premises within the region.
The Lodge Road site has been marketed for potential employment opportunities since the existing occupier raised their intention to relocate, but following a period of 12 months there has been no demand from commercial occupiers, leading to Thornhill Holding’s decision to convert the site into a residential opportunity.
Says Rhian Harris, Planner at HOW Planning: “The plans for the Lodge Road site will not only rejuvenate what is an aging brownfield site, but will also provide much needed new housing for the area, helping to contribute to the Council’s 5-year supply, in a location which is much more suitable for residential development.”
The Lodge Road site is bounded by houses to the North with an additional residential application to the North East of the site currently being considered by the council, which together would further add to the predominantly residential nature of the area.
