Warrington votes in favour of 350 new homes
Councillors have issued support for Bellway’s plans for 244 houses in Croft and Winwick, as well as Richborough Estates’ outline application for 110 homes in Hollins Green.
The votes on the three planning applications took place at Warrington Council’s development management committee meeting on 18 December. All three outcomes were in line with officer recommendation.
Warrington Council’s development manager will now set about securing Section 106 obligations from the developers, as well as making any minor amendments to planning conditions as necessary.
Here is a bit more about each of the projects.
Land off Deacons Close in Croft
- Application number: 2023/00201/FULM
Bellway’s 90-home project will see the Heathcroft Stud Equestrian Centre site become a neighbourhood with a mixture of market and affordable housing.
Of the 90 homes, 18 would be set aside for affordable rent and nine for affordable ownership. The scheme also includes a plot that would be available or custom-build housing.
The project team includes Lichfields, Astle Planning & Design, Eddisons, Ascerta, E3P, Red Acoustics, Redmore Environmental. Rachel Hacking Ecology, and Lees Roxburgh.
Land at Golborne Road in Winwick
- Application number:2023/00204/FULM
Lichfields and APD teamed up again on Bellway’s second application at Warrington Council’s December development management meeting. This one was for 154 homes in Warwick, a scheme that includes 46 affordable residences.
The houses will be a mix of two-, three- and four-bedroom properties. They will be built on 15 acres off Golborne Road.
Red Acoustics, Redmore Environmental, Ascerta, E3P, IGE Consulting, and JSP Sustainability are also on the project team for the scheme.
Land north west of Manchester Road in Hollins Green
- Application number: 2023/00660/OUTM
Richborough Estates’ outline application to construct up to 110 homes on 10 acres received the all-clear from councillors.
The plot off Manchester Road had previously been Green Belt, and had only been removed in the local plan that was adopted in early December.
According to the designs by Nineteen47, the scheme would allow for nearly three acres of green space.
Asteer Planning, Ramm Sanderson, E3P, Tyler Grange, BWB, and HUB are all members of the project team.
