Mixed results for Cheadle housing
Proposals to deliver 124 homes off Wilmslow Road and 159 homes off Stanley Road will head to Stockport Council’s planning committee armed with recommendations for approval. However, the area committee could not reach a decision on HSL’s plans for the Gatley Golf Club site.
The Cheadle Area Committee deliberated over the trio of residential applications last Tuesday, with each development recommended to be given the green light before the final vote.
Gatley Golf Club
Application number: DC/081468
Hollins Strategic Land’s plans for the 44-acre Gatley Golf Club site off Styal Road were met by the committee with concerns surrounding connectivity, sustainability, and traffic, ultimately coming away with no recommendation and the referral for a site visit.
The outline proposals for the nine-hole private golf course, drawn up by Broadway Malyan, feature up to 278 homes, of which 140 would be affordable.
Residents would also have access to more than 26 acres of open space, including a new urban park that would connect to the existing Rose Vale Park.
Heald Green Community Theatre and the clubhouse on site would be retained, with the clubhouse to be adjusted to create 2,200 sq ft of retail space.
Nexus Planning is advising on the proposals. The project team also 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 number: DC/084620
Having entered the committee with the backing of outline permission from the Secretary of State, Bloor Homes will take its plans to build 124 homes in Cheadle Green to Stockport Council with the recommendation to approve.
Plans form the second and final phase of the housebuilder’s 325-home Green Belt neighbourhood off Wilmslow Road, land owned by the Seashell Trust specialist school.
There would be 40 affordable properties provided, in the form of social rent and shared ownership units.
The project team includes NJL Consulting and Lee Roxburgh Consulting Engineers.
Land at Stanley Road
Application number: DC/087141
Clowes Developments and Great Places Housing Group also received a thumbs up for their wholly-affordable 159-home plans for 11 acres of Green Belt off Stanley Road in Heald Green.
The Cartwright & Gross-designed project would feature 81 one- and two-bedroom apartments, three bungalows, and 75 houses.
Homes will be available in a mix of tenures, with 82 to be available under shared ownership, 30 for social rent, and 47 for affordable rent.
Although a Green Belt site, the majority of the land has been previously developed and is currently used as an airport car park.
Savills is the planning consultant for the project. Also on the project team are IBI, DeltaSimons, SLR, and CHBS.
