RESIDENTS have a chance tonight (Tuesday) to find out more about plans for 186 homes on land off Warrington Road, Culcheth, which have been submitted to borough council planning chiefs.
A public meeting has been organised at the Parish Council Library office on Warrington Road tonight for residents, businesses and any other interested parties.
Plans will be available, as well as some parish councillors and the clerk to explain to residents, how to access the borough council’s planning department to put comments about the application.
Comments can be made via email to [email protected] quoting REF 2023/01264/HYB
The scheme has been submitted by Story Homes Ltd and includes 56 affordable homes.
Nearly 90 of the proposed dwellings would be three or four-bedroomed houses and there would be 20 five-bedroomed houses.
Two three-storey apartments are proposed.
The applicants say the site – formerly farmland – is in a highly sustainable location, approximately 1.2 kilometres to the east
of the centre of Culcheth providing access to a number of key services and facilities including shops, restaurants, public houses and a supermarket within walking distance.
It is also close to Culcheth High School and Culcheth Primary School.
Vehicle access to the development would be from Warrington Road and Holcroft Lane.
The development would include public open space, a play area and landscape features, as well as footpaths connecting to the wider transport network. There would also be new tree and hedgerow planting.
One self-build plot would be included in the development.
The scheme is currently being considered by borough council planning officers.
