Green light for Gladman’s 170-home Lymm development

Warrington Council’s planning committee has delegated outline proposals to the authority’s development manager to grant permission, once a Section 106 agreement has been reached.

As well as the homes earmarked for the 18-acre site by Gladman Developments, which is owned by Barratt, the outline application covered access with all other matters reserved.

The site off Pool Lane is split into two parcels, separated by Warrington Road, with 30% of the 170 homes to be classed as affordable.

Both sites on either side of the road are currently open managed agricultural land; with boundaries linking to the western edge of Lymm village.

The project team features Pegasus, who have advised on heritage, with Tetra Tech tackling transport. FPCR Environment and Design has handled arboriculture.

Despite being recommended for approval by officers, due to objections received during the application process, councillors undertook a site visit prior to their meeting.

They voiced concerns about increased traffic, access, and the site’s proximity to a primary school.

Councillors were reminded the site had been allocated in the recently adopted local plan and approved by the secretary of state in the knowledge there is a nearby school.

The committee ultimately decided the proposals were acceptable after listening to highways officer and legal advice, and opted to delegate the granting of approval once the Section 106 agreement is in place.

I’m sure we don’t need more houses building our infrastructure is already at breaking point

Agreed, Anonymous. For example, you have the TPT which runs adjacent to this. No mention of getting a tram on there whatsoever. Very short sighted.


BC – you’re right. Building a £50m 6 mile extension of the tram from Altrincham to Lymm along a footpath through Dunham Massey would indeed be a reasonable trade off for a development of 170 homes.

The council should not be building any more homes in Lymm. They are building too many. There is not enough schools , not enough doctors and too many cars. We are getting saturated. They should be building elsewhere.
