Cheshire East allocates more sites for development

The second part of the council’s Local Plan has set out further site allocations including more employment land in Crewe and housing development on Poynton Sports Club.

A public consultation is set to begin on the council’s site allocations and development policies document, which allocates additional sites for development alongside the borough’s Local Plan, which was adopted in 2017 and runs to 2030.

Of the local centres in the report, the largest housing allocation is in Holmes Chapel where sites will support the delivery of 880 homes. Haslington has the second-largest at 480, followed by Bollington with 390; Shavington with 365; Alderley Edge with 250; and Disley and Audlem with 245 apiece.

Other towns and villages to have land allocated for housing include Chelford, where land for 220 homes is to be allocated; Prestbury with 115; and Mobberley with 60.

In addition to the Local Plan, three extra sites are also proposed in Middlewich; these will provide a total of 210 homes. Poynton has also received an additional allocation of 80 homes on Poynton Sports Club, while a further 25 acres is to be allocated to allow the sports club to relocate.
