The first of four planning applications to build 1400 houses on the Wrexham Road site have been submitted to CWAC. Another three more applications are expected in the coming weeks.
This first application contains two parts: Part A which requests full planning permission to build 509 dwellings to the south of the site, and Part B which concerns outline planning permission for the associated infrastructure including shops, a health centre, pub, and nursery. These plans contain a vast amount of information, in 47 separate documents, which will take a long time to download and read.
The other applications are likely to be a similar size.
It is important that these applications are carefully scrutinised to ensure that the new development is built to the highest possible standards and that it does not have a negative impact on surrounding areas.
You can find details of the applications on the CWAC website at: https://pa.cheshirewestandchester.gov.uk/online-applications/

We already have a subcommittee which will be examining the plans, but in light of the amount of content to be studied would welcome some assistance. If you have any knowledge and/or expertise in planning matters, construction, drainage, traffic management, environment, education and healthcare provision or any other aspect of land development, we would like to hear from you. Please ring Jennifer Crew on 01244 680364 or Brian Westcott on 01244 675431.
