Application made for new sustainable Warrington homes

A new building project has been unveiled near Warrington’s Orford Road that would see the present stables demolished in favour of homes, if full permission is granted.

The planning application that is now with Warrington Borough Council would see five new properties established on land adjacent to Orford Road. The buildings due for construction are described in the submission as single storey, with two bedrooms each.

In recent years, the Warrington location has been the focus of multiple housing proposals. Planning permission was granted by council members for a bungalow in July this year, while another scheme in August 2019 outlined five three-bedroom homes, but was withdrawn by the developer following opposition from residents.

In the recent submission seeking a green light from the council, supporting documents for the proposal stated:

“The application seeks planning approval for a small, sustainable residential development in an existing residential neighbourhood. The proposed dwellings are commensurate with the scale and appearance of those properties which already exist immediately adjacent.”

Professional architects in Macclesfield, Warrington and other Cheshire towns often work to create sustainable designs that suit the existing location in which buildings will be constructed. Schemes must be not only sympathetic to the environment, but also the residents living there.

Previous applications made to construct housing on the site, currently occupied by stables, have been met with council planners’ concerns over access issues and flood risks. To answer these points, the recent proposal includes professional reports to demonstrate the high-quality and architectural merit of the designs and support the viability of the project.
