Sydney Road Crewe

Muller plots 245 homes in Crewe

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.

There’s too many homes in this area already and the traffic flow makes it difficult for pedestrians especially the disabled to cross Sydney road

All these housing developments you continue to approve, could someone please tell me where all our children will go to school or will you finally stop when their is 40 plus children per class. Not to mention the already over loaded hospital doctors surgery’s and road infrastructure. Just completely unacceptable for us all many thanks

Why refuse the affordable homes? \how are people meant to afford the expensive 3/4 bed houses now being proposed? CEBC you have made a very big mistake, these affordable homes are what are needed,,and then they can be rented,,not big mortgage properties.

Disgraceful that so many homes have been allowed in an area where schools and hospital are struggling, i dont suppose anything i say will make the slightest difference, im afraid to say money talks, of course the councillors will pat each other on the back beleiving that their doing a good job, laughable of course
