Bluemantle submits plans for housing scheme

The property investment and development company has submitted a planning application for the redevelopment of a 30-acre site in Holmes Chapel, Cheshire.

Bluemantle is planning to transform the former Fison's factory site owned by Sanofi Aventis and Rhodia on London Road and Station Road, which has remained vacant since 2005.

A mixed use scheme offering 231 residential units including open market, affordable and low-cost market housing is planned.

Proposals also include a hotel, family pub and restaurant, day nursery, care home and convenience store as well as offices and light industrial accommodation.

Simon Isherwood, director of Bluemantle, said: "We have worked very closely with Cheshire East Council and Holmes Chapel Parish Council over the last 18 months to design a scheme that we are confident will have a positive impact on both the local residents as well as local businesses. It was clear from our public consultation exercise that there is a genuine desire from the local community to see the potential of this redundant brownfield site realised and every consideration has been taken in to account to ensure that the new scheme will contribute to the future prosperity of the village."

Calder Peel is the appointed architects and masterplanners for the scheme. HOW planning is the planning consultants advising Bluemantle. A decision is expected to be given later this summer.
