Go-ahead for 151 Daresbury homes and Runcorn retail

Halton Council’s development management committee has approved the next tranche of Redrow housing, along with neighbourhood shops for Sandymoor.

Redrow’s approval means it can stat on its next chunk of housing in Daresbury, and follows a 335-home consent granted in July.

This consent covers the development of three-, four- and five-bedroom housing at the Crows Nest Farm site off Delph Lane, representing phase B of the Daresbury South allocation. Redrow is advised by Gerald Eve.

The 151 homes are 27 fewer than the 178 originally slated for the site, due to further site constraints being discovered since the initial application – planning officers note that there is sufficient flexibility in the remaining masterplan area to make up the density to the levels originally intended.

Approval was also granted for five retail units and 49 senior living homes in Sandymoor, proposed by a joint venture between Lane End and Williams Tarr Group.

A Co-op store anchoring the scheme has already been completed at the site, while the nursery included in the initial 2019 application is also unaffected.

The JV is seeking to update its earlier consent, having added a single apartment to the scheme, along with a cycle-parking block and a substation. In addition, it is seeking hot food takeaway consent for two of the retail units. A vet will occupy a further unit.

Livv Housing Group is lined up as the operator for the residential project, which will comprise five bungalows, 20 one-bedroom flats and 24 two-bedroom flats.

PRP is the scheme architect and Urban Green the landscape architect.

Halton Council’s planning references for the projects are 21/00319/FULEIA for Daesbury and 21/00628/FUL for Sandymoor.
