A major housing settlement of almost 1,000 homes has been given the go-ahead by Cheshire East Council.
The application for 997 new homes at Kingsley Fields in Nantwich was the largest reserved matters planning application ever considered by Cheshire East.
The application was submitted by How Planning on behalf of housebuilders Taylor Wimpey, Redrow Homes and David Wilson Homes, supported by a design principle document prepared by Broadway Malyan.
On the 143-acre site, 366 homes are to be delivered by Taylor Wimpey, 319 by Redrow and 312 from David Wilson.
The land is currently owned by Reaseheath College and the development will help fund a range of new facilities including a new Agricultural Technology Centre.
