Cheshire East Council has started a second round of consultation on plans to dispose of two plots of designated open space in Knutsford, which could enable the construction of up to 225 new homes in the area.
The largest, 6.6-acre public open space, is currently used as playing fields next to Booths Mere, off North Downs, and is being proposed for disposal to allow the redevelopment of a site off Longridge.
The playing field would be used as an access point for any potential redevelopment of the site, which has the capacity for around 225 homes.
A consultation was held on the plans to dispose of the smaller parcel of land fronting Longridge, with 85% of respondents indicating they had no objection to the disposal.
However, feedback on the disposal of the larger parcel of land, encompassing the playing fields, has so far been negative with 151 objections put forward to the council.
A second consultation process has now been launched, running for 28 days, to allow the public to feed back on proposals to dispose of the playing fields.
Cheshire East said any public land lost due to the development would be accommodated within the scheme, and as a result, no public space would be lost. The proposed development is set to feature 20 acres of public open space.
