Developer wins planning extension in Cheshire

Acting on behalf of PH Property Holdings, HOW Planning has advised on the extension of time limits for implementation to three planning applications for an extensive regeneration scheme in the Park Green area of Macclesfield.

Planning permission was granted by Macclesfield Council in September 2007 for 87 apartments and 11,500 sq ft of business space.

The council also granted Conservation Area Consent for the demolition of Park Green Mill and Waterside Mill, both unlisted buildings, and listed building consent for the internal and external works proposed to Georgian Mill, a Grade 2-listed building.

With planning consents due to lapse, HOW Planning submitted three separate applications to extend the timescales for a further three years, to which Cheshire East Council's planning committee has now consented.

Jon Suckley, associate at HOW Planning, said: "The mixed-use development will secure the future regeneration of the area and the council's decision to extend the development time limits for implementation on each of the three applications will hopefully allow this high quality scheme to come forward once the economic climate has improved."

James Heyworth, director of Warrington-based PH Property Holdings, said: "Due to the complex nature of this site the planning process has been quite a complicated one, but approval of the time extensions mean we will be in a position to progress and deliver all our initial plans for the scheme."
