561 homes top Cheadle agenda
If the list of development applications is anything to go by, the Cheadle area of Stockport is geared up for significant growth in the next few years.
The Cheadle Area Committee will deliberate over three residential applications during its meeting on Tuesday, each recommended for them to give a thumbs up to prior to being voted on by the wider Stockport planning committee.
On the agenda: outline permission for up to 278 homes on the site of Gatley Golf Club, detailed plans for 124 homes off Wilmslow Road, and proposals for 159 homes off Stanley Road.
Gatley Golf Club
- Application reference number: DC/081468
Gatley Golf Club is currently a nine-hole private membership course, but under plans from Hollins Strategic Land it will become a thriving neighbourhood.
Hollins Strategic Land is seeking outline planning approval to construct up to 278 homes on 44 acres off Styal Road in Gatley. The project also calls for the retention of the Heald Green Community Theatre and the course’s club house, which will adjusted to provide 2,150 sq ft of retail space.
Of the 278 homes proposed, 140 would be designated as affordable, according to the planning statement by Nexus Planning.
The homes themselves would be built on just 16 acres of the site, with more than 26 acres reserved for open space. This includes a new urban park that would connect to the existing Rose Vale Park.
In addition to Nexus Planning, the project’s team includes Tetra Tech, Broadway Malyan, Lexington, Kathryn Sather & Associates, Professional Consult, and Tyler Grange.
Ironside Farrar, Brownfield Solutions, Redmore Environmental, Eddisons, and Geomatic Surveys have also advised on the scheme.
Land at Wilmslow Road
- Application reference number: DC/084620
Armed with outline permission from the Secretary of State, Bloor Homes is ready to proceed with the second and final phase of its 325-home Green Belt neighbourhood off Wilmslow Road in Heald Green.
This second phase consists of 124 homes, of which 40 would be affordable. Of those 40, 13 would be available under social rent and the other 27 for shared ownership.
The houses themselves have a mixture of bedrooms, with most having between three and four.
Each of the homes would have a private garden and able to take advantage of the open space included in the first phase of the project, which includes a community orchard and wildflower meadow.
The project team includes NJL Consulting and Lee Roxburgh Consulting Engineers.
Land off Stanley Road
- Application reference number: DC/087141
Clowes Developments and Great Places Housing Group have tweaked their 159-home plans for 11 acres off Stanley Road in Heald Green to increase the amount of social housing. Originally, the scheme only had 112 affordable homes – but now the entire project will be affordable housing.
This breaks down to 81 one- and two-bedroom apartments, three bungalows, and 75 houses. The houses range from having two bedrooms to four.
Of the 159 homes, 82 are to be available under the shared ownership tenure, 30 for social rent, and 47 for affordable rent.
While the site is in the Green Belt, a good chunk has been previously developed and is currently used as an airport car park.
Savills is the planning consultant for the project. Cartwright & Gross is the architect and IBI is the landscape architect. The project team also includes DeltaSimons, SLR, and CHBS.
