More than 100 homes lined up in Warrington
Richborough Estates has submitted an outline planning application for up to 110 homes on Green Belt land off Manchester Road in Hollins Green.
While the 10.5-acre plot is designated Green Belt, it is also set to be removed from protected status in the draft Warrington Local Plan, which is currently undergoing a second round of consultation on recommended modifications from the Planning Inspectorate.
According to the local plan, the site will be suitable for accommodating a minimum of 90 homes.
The land promoter’s proposals would go above that number, also providing open space, a play area, and cycle and pedestrian links. The scheme has been designed by Nineteen47, with plans submitted by Asteer Planning.
“Our proposed development will provide a mixture of high-quality, family homes that will help address the borough’s housing needs,” said Harry Jackson, regional manager at Richborough Estates.
“We’re pleased to have submitted this planning application after community consultation and look forward to its delivery once planning permission has been secured.”
Paul Nellist, associate partner at Asteer, said that the company had been working closely with the council throughout the pre-application period.
“Great care has been taken to ensure that the proposals for this scheme are sensitively designed and take into account all of the considerations and opportunities provided by the local area and surroundings,” Nellist said.
In addition to Asteer and Nineteen47, the project team includes RammSanderson, E3P, Tyler Grange, and HUB. BWB Consulting is advising air quality, energy, noise, sustainable drainage, and flood risk.
