NEW HOUSING PLANNED FOR CHESHIRE EAST
David Wilson Homes and Muller Property Group have submitted a reserved matters planning application for the first phase of development at Maylands Park in Nantwich. Asteer Planning has provided planning advice for the scheme which will include new housing, landscaping, open space, parking and other infrastructure.
If approved, up to 189 homes will be built as part of the new proposals which will also bring a number of community benefits to the area including provision of a new village green, play area, community orchard and ecological areas.
The reserved matters application is for the first residential phase of a wider 12.43 ha mixed use scheme which was granted outline approval in July 2020. The reserved matters application seeks approval of the first phase but is also supported by a Design Code, including an Indicative Masterplan and Phasing Plan which provides a framework for future reserved matters on the remainder of the site which could include a range of uses.
Plans for the first phase have now been submitted to Cheshire East Council, following extensive consultation and design meetings to ensure they incorporated the views of the local community and stakeholders.
Says Alice Henderson, Planner at Asteer: “The proposals for the first phase of this scheme reflect the needs of the local community and if approved will have a positive effect on Nantwich and the wider area. It will contribute significantly to the Cheshire East housing supply and will enhance what is already predominantly a residential area.”
