Mulbury and Jigsaw advance 39 homes in Winsford

The developer has lodged plans for a £4.1m residential scheme on behalf of housing association Jigsaw Homes Group, which would operate the scheme if it wins consent.

The proposed development from Jigsaw and Widnes-based Mulbury Homes would occupy a three-acre site off Grange Lane in Winsford, previously used as a builder’s yard and other commercial premises.

Under the plans, the scheme would comprise 19 semi-detached homes of two and three bedrooms, and 20 one- and two-bedroom “cottage-style” flats, according to the developer.

Outline consent was granted by Cheshire West & Chester Council in February 2019, and the latest application concerns reserved matters necessary to progress the plans.

The site sits between existing homes on Grange Lane and playing fields belonging to the Winsford Academy school. Future residents would access the site off Grange Lane, arriving into a cul-de-sac.

Most of the mature trees to the site boundary will be retained as part of the landscaping plan and all homes would have rear gardens and off-road parking, the developer said.

PWA Planning is advising Mulbury on planning, while MPSL Planning & Design is the architect for the scheme.

Subject to approval, Mulbury would aim to start on site in January, with completion scheduled in spring 2022.

Greg Mulligan, co-founder and director at Mulbury, said: “This is a great opportunity to provide well-built affordable homes in Winsford.

“The development has been carefully designed to be sensitive to existing homes in the area and will bring a fresh look to this dilapidated site.”

And Joanne Bonnington, assistant director of development at Jigsaw Group, added: “Jigsaw has an ambitious plan for developing new high quality, affordable properties across the North West in order to help alleviate the housing crisis in the region.”

So that would result in at least 60+ more cars being on the already congested Grange Lane and High Street….. more homes and less thoughts in to highways, leisure facilities…. come on town council stop allowing homes to be built just so you can line your pockets.

So CWAC what was that about not needing a relief road from garage lane? Because it seems these house and the 268 planned homes that is most likely to be appealed after its rejection could cause some issues. God forbid the FA go ahead with there plans for a complex down there. Maybe actually doing the traffic management survey properly instead of doing in the advantage of the plan like they did on the 268 home plan putting the counter on the entrance to hawks head and not at the top of roehurst lane and a separate one on garage lane.This missed all the traffic going into Windermere and Elm Tree. But what do you care you don’t live there, do you?
