Macbryde submits Ellesmere Port housing plan

Acting on behalf of Macbryde Homes Manchester-based Hourigan Connolly has submitted a reserved matters application to Cheshire West & Chester Council for the final phases of residential development of a brownfield site off Cromwell Road to the south of Ellesmere Port town centre.

Outline planning permission was granted in 2012 for 427 homes across the wider site. Macbryde Homes now has control of the final phases of development and has submitted proposals for 171 new homes.

Stuart Andrew, design manager at Macbryde Homes, said: “Macbryde Homes has worked closely with the land owner and council to prepare this £25m scheme of new high quality family homes. The site will play a key role in boosting the local economy and will make a significant contribution to delivering new homes at a time when the Government requires Councils to boost their supply of housing”.

Beverley Moss, associate at Hourigan Connolly, commented: “This previously developed piece of land has lain vacant and empty for a number of years, to the detriment of the local surroundings.  The scheme will make a valuable contribution to the continued regeneration of Ellesmere Port and comprises a holistic approach to contributing to the existing neighbourhood. The proposals include areas of open space and an equipped play area as well as a new pedestrian crossing which will benefit both the future occupants of the new homes and existing residents. We’ve had positive pre-application discussions with officers of the council and we look forward to working towards a positive outcome for our client which will result in the delivery of a significant number of homes in a sustainable location.”
