Anwyl submits plans for 119 Congleton homes
The housebuilder is hoping to start on site next year to deliver houses on the greenfield land off Congleton Link Road at Somerford Green.
Anwyl Homes has lodged reserved matters plans with Cheshire East Council to build 119 homes, to be accessed off a new priority-controlled junction off the Radnor Park roundabout.
APD Architecture designed the scheme, which would create 10 one-, 21 two-, 33 three-, and 55 four-bedroom houses, including 21 affordable properties.
Proposals also include 1.5 acres of open space, featuring new footpaths and a play area.
As part of the Section 106 agreement linked to the outline planning application, Anwyl will contribute around £1.9m towards the £90m Congleton Link Road.
Anwyl does not yet own the 13-acre parcel of land, which comprises two fields and is allocated for housing in the Cheshire East Local Plan.
Phil Dolan, managing director of Anwyl Homes Cheshire and North Wales, said: “Local market data and feedback from our consultation events showed a strong demand for high-quality new homes in Congleton, especially more energy-efficient new builds.
“All our homes will feature either air source heat pumps or PV solar panels to provide heating and hot water, replacing traditional gas boilers”, he continued.
“They will also have excellent levels of insulation and air tightness to ensure reduced heat loss.”
Asteer Planning is the planning consultant for the scheme. The project team also includes landscape architect TPM Landscape, environmental consultant Ascerta, and transport consultant Eddisons.
Plans form phase two of a wider project. Outline permission was granted for around 245 homes and 313,000 sq ft of employment land on the larger 60-acre plot in 2018.
The wider development is being delivered in two phases. Stewart Milne Homes is already on site constructing the first phase of the development to build 128 homes.
