David Wilson Homes has submitted a planning application for a new residential development on land north of Stanneylands Road and behind Wilmslow Garden Centre.
The 14.62 hectare site, which is currently used for grazing/paddocks, has been included in the Cheshire East Local Plan as a site suitable for building up to 200 homes and removed from the Green Belt.
The proposed scheme is for 174 houses with 486 parking spaces with a new three-armed roundabout providing access to the site from Stanneylands Road and public open space with a trim-trail and fitness or play equipment. Additionally there will be a new foot and cycle path connecting Linneys Bridge and the River Dean.
David Wilson Homes is proposing a range of homes, including detached houses, some townhouses and a small number of apartments. 30% of the 174 dwellings will be provided as affordable housing, with 34 being made available as affordable rent and 18 as intermediate housing (shared equity or shared ownership dwellings).
A spokesperson for DWH said "The new development would look and feel similar to that delivered by DWH at Bollin Park on Adlington Road. It will include open market aspirational homes, as well as 30% affordable homes as required by Council policy, which may be particularly suitable for first time buyers or those looking to rent."
Of the 34 social rented properties 8 will be one-bedroom, 19 will be two-bedroom and 7 will be three-bedroom. Whilst for intermediate housing the scheme includes: 3 one-bedroom, 3 two-bedroom and 12 three-bedroom.
The other 122 housing will be consist of 7 three bedroom and 115 with four bedroom homes.
It is proposed that the on-site affordable housing will be completed and transferred prior to 90% of the market dwellings being occupied.
Land to the north of the site across the River Dean will remain in the Green Belt and is not proposed for development.
The plans can be viewed on the Cheshire East Council website by searching for planning reference 17/4521M. The last date for submitting comments is 5th October and a decision is expected by 7th December.
