Developer Lane End has submitted a planning application to Cheshire West & Chester Council for 52 houses and apartments on the Sycamore Park Garden Centre in Great Sutton, Ellesmere Port.
Designed by architect Paddock Johnson Partnership, the proposed development on the A41 will be built on the site of the garden centre, which is due to close in the coming months. The plot is surrounded by other residential development.
Lane End plans to build 38 homes, including 18 three-beds, 10 two-beds, and 10 four-beds. There will also be 14 two-bed apartments.
The developer has allocated all the homes as affordable, with 28 for shared ownership and 24 available for affordable sale.
The professional team on the project also includes Urban Green as landscape architect.
Lane End said the designs would “breathe life into a site requiring investment and regeneration”.
“We believe the reinvigoration of this genuine brownfield site within an established residential area, and bringing it back into a use which will improve the wider area, is of benefit to all”.
