Chapelwood Retirement apartments have been very slow to sell. Are yet more retirement apartments needed in this location?

The development at Chaplewood had too few parking spaces. Maybe this is one reason why Chapelwood is not yet fully occupied.

Developers should learn the lesson that caused Pegasus Life difficulties.

16 car parking spaces for 33 properties does not compute. I would not want to have to buy a parking space as well as an apartment. Nor would I want to fight for an unallocated one on return from an away day or extended holiday.

In this plan there is no space allocation for emergency vehicle parking. This is a crazy plan irrespective of the location but more so in an affluent area.

This elderly punter would buy one without guaranteed parking on site.

I wonder when the development on Manchester Road will start. Just another cash for building permission. When Cheshire East fail to have appropriate staff and legal team to deal with appeals.

Here we go again! Building and tarmaccing over gardens as if there were no natural crisis. Carry on regardless.

Typo correction.

This elderly punter would NOT buy one, even with a guaranteed parking slot on-site.
