Green light for Redrow’s 627 Ellesmere Port homes

Cheshire West and Chester Council has approved reserved matters for phases six to 11 of the developer’s wider Ledsham Garden Village project in Little Sutton.

Councillors looked at details including scale, appearance, and landscaping for a scheme which Redrow Homes gained outline consent for in 2015. The plans include a local shop and a primary school on a 260-acre site off Ledsham Road.

At CWAC’s planning meeting, councillors were told sports pitches tailored to football, including changing facilities, would be a feature of this stage of the development.

Access from Green Lane in neighbouring Great Sutton would also be created for 97 of the properties.

This tranche of development will see the construction of eight one-, 155 two-, 244 three-, 192 four-, and five five-bedroom houses, apartments, and bungalows.

This includes 156 affordable homes, representing a quarter of this phase of development, to be peppered around the site.

When completed these will bring up the total number of homes in the wider scheme to 1,647, with this stage expected to be completed in several years’ time.

Redrow is currently on-site having already built more than 500 homes. Full permission for the previous phases was granted in 2020.

The project team for the development includes landscape architect Trevor Bridge Associates and environmental consultant The Environment Partnership.
