Green light awarded to new Macclesfield homes

A project to build new homes in the centre of Macclesfield has been met by approval from the local council.

The residential scheme, presented by Nook and Key Holdings, aims to construct 11 new terraced houses on the former site of Cheshire Windows and Glass on Armitt Street. Now, members of Cheshire East Council have granted permission for the plans, which will see a selection of three-bedroom homes with two or three storeys built on the currently empty brownfield site.

Macclesfield Town council had previously announced objections to the application on the basis of insufficient parking requirements. The scheme outlines only 17 spaces for parking, but the council guidelines suggest 22.

However, two older applications were given approval, one of which only provided 15 spaces for parking, so the council decided the latest proposal was an improvement and granted full planning permission.

Architects in Macclesfield can sometimes assist developers when making council planning applications, using their skills and experience to help the process go smoothly.

A recent council report following the planning submission commented on the location’s numerous qualities as an area for homes:

“The application site is in a sustainable location within walking distance of town centre facilities and employment, and in close proximity to a range of means of public transport.”

Tom Hiles, council planner for Macclesfield, concluded that the application was entirely acceptable answering all planning matters.

As part of the residential development, an estimated £50,000 will be put towards improving recreational facilities and parks nearby.
