The housebuilder wants to construct 179 homes across 35 acres north of Radnor Park Trading Estate off the recently completed £90m Congleton Link Road.
Under plans from Ainscough Strategic Land approved in 2017, the wider 60-acre Congleton site has outline consent for 275 houses and 312,890 sq ft of commercial space, including 12,500 sq ft of leisure.
Stewart Milne’s plans for 179 three- and four-bedroom houses is the first phase of the project to come forward and would be located next to Miller Homes’ Turnstone Grange scheme.
Cheshire East has recommended the project be approved when its strategic planning board meets next week.
The outline application for the project, known as Radnor Green, was drawn up by architect Broadway Malyan, Aeon Archeology, BWB, Croft Transport Solutions and Tyler Grange as environmental consultant.
Stewart Milne’s in-house planning and design teams have drawn up the detailed plans for phase one.
