Macclesfield housing unit gets green light

A building providing homes for vulnerable people in Macclesfield has been given the go ahead.

The housing unit, operated by the East Cheshire Housing consortium, will provide homes for 13 individuals mainly living with mental health issues, within a three-floor block. The site for the unit is located on Windmill Street in Macclesfield that was previously the location of a yard handling scrap metal.

Cheshire East Council has now granted full planning permission for the structure on the condition that a 1.8 metre-tall steel fence is erected as an anti-trespass measure. The stipulation is designed to protect those using the supported accommodation from any risks associated with nearby railway lines.

When completed, the sheltered housing will include a single five-bedroom home and eight single bed flats. Only four parking bays are planned for the premises. As most of the tenants will not drive, the spaces will be used by visitors and staff offering support. Residents in the five-room house will have round-the-clock monitoring, while a floating service will be delivered to those using the one-person apartments.

Chief executive officer for ECHC, Brenda Wright, said:

“We are particularly excited by our Windmill Street development. We believe it provides an ideal combination of benefits for our supported living tenants, who will be provided with excellent high-quality accommodation, improving their wellbeing.

Architects in Macclesfield designing plans should always be respectful of neighbouring properties. They should also encourage regeneration in the area, ensuring plans have aesthetic appeal to enhance the local area.
