Proposals for new homes at Little Sutton to go on display
Following an in-depth community consultation, residents of Little Sutton, near Ellesmere Port, will be given an ‘advanced viewing’ of updated plans for a new homes development.
Developer Redrow Homes will be displaying details of the proposed ‘masterplan’, for land south of Ledsham Road, at Little Sutton Library from March 10 to April 2, prior to a planning application being submitted.
Victoria Murray, head of land and planning for Redrow Homes (NW), said: “Following a community consultation event last September and on-going discussions with interested parties, led by award-winning planners and master planners Terence O’Rourke Ltd, we have taken all the feedback on board and refreshed our proposed masterplan for the development. We are now moving towards the submission of a planning application at the end of April. This public exhibition is an opportunity for local residents to see the updated plans in advance of that application.”
Part of the site has previously been allocated for housing within the Local Plan and the remainder has been earmarked for future development beyond 2011.
The land has potential for around 2,000 new homes and, alongside these, Redrow is keen to provide amenities that will contribute positively to the existing community.
Victoria added: “We hope that local people will see that we have taken their views on board and that the potential benefits of this scheme to the community and local economy are extensive. Subject to planning permission, the scheme will provide high quality family homes set within an extensive framework of landscaped parks and public open spaces as well providing a new primary school, shops and other community facilities.”
Redrow’s credentials for a development of this nature are strong, having previously created new neighbourhoods and urban villages all over the UK, including 1,500 new homes and local amenities at Kingsmead, near Northwich, Cheshire and new homes, shops, a business park and community facilities at Buckshaw Village, in Chorley, Lancashire.
