Redrow’s 54 Chester residences tipped for approval

Plans form part of the wider Wrexham Road strategic housing allocation of around 1,300 homes being developed by the housebuilder and Taylor Wimpey.

Redrow is seeking to develop the 6.5-acre site at Moat Farm which is currently redundant farmland and derelict farmhouse.

The scheme comes before Cheshire West and Chester Council’s planning committee next Tuesday.

It features a mix of one-bed to five-bedroom properties, mainly detached, but with some mews/terraced units. These will include two one-bedroom apartments which are attached to one of the mews blocks.

An area of amenity space has also been earmarked for the west of the site, close to where an existing pond is located.

Although the scheme proposes filling in that pond, the developer plans to create two additional ponds within the designated Wrexham Road ecological mitigation area, to compensate for the loss of the one on the Moat Farm site.

A play area would also be created on a separate portion of open space within the Moat Farm site, with access due to be via the adjacent Wrexham Road housing development.

The project team features Lichfields, Vectos, TEP, Trevor Bridge Associates, Waterco, Bureau Veritas UK, Hepworth Acoustics, RPS, E3P, and FES Group.

To view the plans search for reference number 22/03736/FUL on Cheshire West and Chester Council’s planning portal.

An idle observation. Nationally it’s maybe hard to argue the volume housebuilders have monopolies, but when I look at Cheshire Redrow seem to have all the key sites locked down.

Not very contemporary. In fact the whole of the new development on Wrexham road is appaling. No imagination just more of the same old same old. When are large house builders going to employ architects who are innovative and have some design flair?

When are they going to rename the ‘Heritage’ house type pack to ‘Pastiche’?

Is there still a great deal of demand for cookie cutter cardboard homes on formerly green fields with postage stamps for gardens?

Much rather live in a city with everything I need walking distance away and a huge park on the doorstep.

the traffic round the area of the already new builds is horrrific , people can be stuck for so long in traffic that when it eventually moves cars will speed up trying to beat the lights on post house round about , major accidents happen on that round about on a weekly basis so to add more homes more cars is madness
