Wainhomes set for Willaston housing refusal

Jessica Middleton-Pugh

Cheshire East Council is set to reject an application for the development of 100 homes in Willaston by developer Wainhomes, as the scheme 'would result in a loss of open countryside and an erosion of the green gap between Willaston and Nantwich'.

In a report ahead of a meeting of Cheshire East's planning committee on Wednesday 15 April, planning officers recommended that the proposals for the site off Cheerbrook Road be refused, although they acknowledged that "the adverse impacts in approving this development would not significantly and demonstrably outweigh the benefits of the development".

The 10-acre site was initially earmarked by Wainhomes for the development of 120 homes, but since the application was submitted in December was reduced to 100 houses.

Wainhomes has planning permission for the construction of 21 family homes to the North of Cheerbrook Road.

Wainhomes was advised by Emery Planning Partnership.
