Muller has advanced proposals to build 245 properties on a 22-acre greenfield site outside Crewe, the second phase of the wider Sydney Road housing development.
The developer and land promoter has put forward a reserved matters application for the site, which secured consent for up to 275 homes in 2016.
Covering nearly 22 acres, the plot sits to the North East of Crewe, next to the first phase of the Sydney Road housing development, which includes 240 properties.
Muller’s proposals are primarily three-bedroom houses, although there will also be 44 four-bedroom homes. There are also 20 apartments proposed as part of the plans.
The developer has put forward a 30% affordable housing contribution in line with Cheshire East Council policy; this will provide 48 units for affordable rent and 26 for intermediate tenures.
Muller’s reserved matters application has now been submitted to Cheshire East, although the Local Authority has not yet set a date to consider the application. Macclesfield-based Bower Mattin and Young is the architect.
Nearby, Galliford Try had proposed building 40 affordable homes on a greenfield site, but this was refused earlier this month by Cheshire East’s planning committee against officer recommendation.
