Wain Homes proposes 267 Ellesmere Port houses

The scheme would cover 30 acres of greenfield land at Dunkirk Farm, a site earmarked for housing in the borough’s local development plan.

Wain Homes has teamed up with The Renew Land Group and Henry Proudlove to submit plans to Cheshire West and Chester Council for the delivery of 267 houses near Ellesmere Port.

The DGL Associates-designed development would feature 44 two-, 94 three-, 125 four-, and four five-bedroom properties, accessed off Old Meadow Drive.

Parking would be provided in the form of one car parking space for one-bedroom homes, two bays for two- to three-bedroom properties, and three bays for four- and five-bedroom units. Each house would also feature two covered cycle spaces.

Due to viability concerns, no affordable housing is proposed as part of this scheme.

Emery Planning is advising on the proposals. Also on the project team are Tetra Tech, Trevor Bridge Associates, and Hepworth Acoustics.

Not going to win any architectural or landscaping awards is it. Where do you go with that CGI. Two lovely blank elevations for starters.

Greenfield site yet no affordable provision whatsoever… Can only hope the viability assessment is heavily scrutinised by CWACC

I live in oldmeadow drive and I cannot believe Wain homes want to use the drive as a access to there new site!!
The roads are barely wide enough for cars to park outside homes, nevermind builders wagons up and down roads all day. We have lived with this road being a builders site for 2 years, now we are expected to live a further 3 years plus with wagons driving up and each, with all the young children we have living in this area!!! These roads are busy enough especially the A41.
With the 250 homes being built where are the extra schools and doctors going to be built?
And Redrow expect all home owners in the estate to pay £350 ground management fee to maintain when this area will be an absolute dumping ground and definitely unsafe for our children to play outside with the amount of traffic this is doing to cause!!!

No affordable on a greenfield site due to viability concerns ? Looks like the cgi shows 1980’s designed homes …
