The energy and regeneration specialist wants to build a further 268 homes across 17 acres of council-owned land north of the town centre, after winning a separate approval for 138 homes off Smokehall Lane in January.
Cheshire West & Chester Council is due to approve the proposals next week, boosting Engie Regeneration’s presence in Winsford.
The scheme would be located between Grange Lane and Bradford Road in Winsford. Of the proposed 268 homes, 24 would have one bedroom, 60 would have two bedrooms, 164 would have three bedrooms and 20 would have four bedrooms.
A 30% affordable housing provision is proposed under the plans. A further 92 homes are to be made available for shared ownership.
Part of the site is occupied by the Verdin playing fields, used by Winsford High Street Community Primary School, which would be relocated to the south of the site under the plans.
Additionally, Engie – part of the French energy multinational – is being asked to make a section 106 contribution of £260,000 to replace sports pitches and changing facilities.
Access to the development would be from Roehurst Lane.
JDA Architects designed the scheme and Avison Young provided planning advice.
Engie won planning approval for the other 138 homes at Winsford earlier this year.
