Muller Property Group submitted the planning application for a mixed use employment development as well as a residential development of 189 home to Cheshire East Council.
Following a period of continued promotion and a number of appeals, the Secretary of State issued his decision in July 2020 which was to grant planning permission.
This 12.43 hectares (30.7 acres) site is located just over 6 miles from Crewe and is located to the south of the existing settlement. As such we identified that it offered excellent potential for both housing and employment opportunities.
Through decision of the Secretary of State, Muller secured outline planning consent for a mixed use employment development comprising retail, office, trade counter, industrial and day nursery/creche as well as a residential development of 189 homes.
Muller has agreed terms with a housebuilder for the outline approved residential parcel and a joint reserved matters application for 189 dwellings is currently prepared for submission to Cheshire East Council.
A full planning application for the spine road within the outline approved scheme was approved by Cheshire East Council in December 2021.
Natural England licences were obtained in March 2021 to fence and trap and Great Crested Newts found on site and all Newts have been relocated to the compensation areas off-site successfully. Furthermore, full surface and foul water designs are being prepared based on the housebuilders 189 dwelling scheme and proposed end uses.
As part of the full access approval 12/3746N, an application to discharge all pre-commencement conditions has been submitted for approval.
A marketing campaign is being prepared to advertise the mixed use local centre and employments areas to attract interest from potential end-users.
