A mixed-use scheme including offices, a hotel, a pub, and a McDonalds alongside the M6 in Sandbach has come forward, four years after the site first secured planning permission.
Outline planning permission for up to 250 homes, a hotel, two restaurants, and offices was granted by Cheshire East in 2015, and the landowner W&S Sandbach has now advanced plans to build out the commercial element of the scheme.
The mixed-use project is set to feature two office blocks of 16,000 sq ft and 13,200 sq ft; a McDonalds restaurant; a drive-thru Costa Coffee; a 3,500 sq ft creche; a 23,000 sq ft, 63-bedroom hotel; and a family pub and restaurant totalling 5,700 sq ft.
The pub, Costa Coffee, McDonalds, and hotel will be at the gateway to the site with both offices situated towards the southern end of the site. All of the elements come with parking, while landscaping, bulb planting, and art installations are planned where the development adjoins to the existing road network.
The 69,000 sq ft scheme covers a 10-acre plot off Junction 17 of the M6 just outside Sandbach. The housing element of the site, granted planning permission in 2015, is now being built out by Barratt Homes, while a spine road has also been completed.
An application for the mixed-use development has now been submitted to the council, supported by Craig Foster Architects.
The application also leaves space for a future development site within the plot; according to the architect, this is likely to be for office development but will come forward in a separate planning application.
