Ledsham Redrow
Phase three of 'Ledsham Garden Village' sits at the lower centre of the masterplan site

Redrow set for go-ahead on next Ledsham phase

The third phase of the housebuilder’s project in Little Sutton near Ellesmere Port is primed for reserved matters approval, adding a further 256 homes.

Cheshire West & Chester’s planning committee meets on 13th October to discuss the proposal. Redrow has outline consent for up to 2,000 homes at the 260-acre site off Ledsham Road. It has so far delivered a 170-home first phase and is on site with a further 272 houses in phase two.

The project as a whole is marketed by Redrow as Ledsham Garden Village, although it is not part of the Government’s Gardens and Village programme.

Phases one and two abut Little Sutton on the masterplan site’s eastern boundary, with phase three being more central, extending south of the locally listed Sutton Hall Farm to the boundary of the Sutton Water Treatment Works site.

Although phase three includes a school, this will be covered separately in a specific reserved matters application. What it does include is 5.8 acres of open space, including sports pitches, and 81 affordable homes – slightly more than 30%, making up for a shortfall on the 25% target in the previous phase.

Good luck to whoever buys one! you most certainly will need it. Strongly suggest you try and watch the ITV tonight programme in regard to the people on the Wirral who tried to buy their freeholds – only to find they had gone up in price astronomically – as per on the New Heyes site in Liverpool. One man hung a banner on his house saying if you are thinking of buying one of these newbuilds ring me first – that was the only way he managed to get them to engage with him on defects. What’s the saying – buyer beware!

I live on the estate now and have just bought my freehold completely hastle free? All of the new houses are now sold freehold so your argument is pointless plus I’ve had no problems with the company at all, Its a lovely estate with a lovely community feel.
