Pochin’s plans for Crewe Gateway next phase

The contractor and developer has launched a public consultation on two planning applications for land off Beswick Drive in Crewe.

The plans for a mixed-use scheme on a vacant site next to University Way and Crewe Green Road roundabout are part of the phased development of the 10-acre Crewe Gateway site.

Designed by Pulmann Associates Architects, the scheme across three plots includes a Jaguar car dealership and showroom, service station, and a drive-through coffee outlet.

Dependent on approval from Cheshire East Council, each plot will be delivered with associated landscaping, car parking and access arrangements.

The planning application is being managed by Knights LLP. Following the consultation, the application is due to be submitted by the end of February.

Crewe Gateway is a site next to the Crewe Business Park. The scheme currently has a 6,000 sq ft retail development, including a Co-operative convenience store, alongside a 55-bedroom Travelodge hotel, JW Lees public house, 790-bedroom student accommodation for Manchester Metropolitan University, Bannatyne Fitness Centre.

Jim Nicholson, chief executive of Pochin's, said: "The National Planning Policy Framework requires that any proposed development proactively drives and supports sustainable economic development to deliver the homes and businesses, and thriving local places that our country needs.

"We have designed this planning application with that in mind and it is our intention that this will be a positive addition to the local community.

"We hope that the local community will welcome and support this application for economic development in order that new businesses and opportunities can be brought to Crewe for the wider benefit of the area."
