New Macclesfield homes planned above Indian restaurant

Plans have been unveiled involving adding two floors on top of an Indian restaurant in the town centre of Macclesfield to provide 14 new residences.

A planning application submitted by Bailey Property Management outlines a new scheme to create eight two-bedroom apartments and six one-bedroom apartments above the Lazeez Restaurant.

Although the building is registered as being located on Brook Street, it is based on an island that also leads onto Townley Street, George Street and Sunderland Street.

Previously, its first floor was occupied by a gym, but the new scheme will see it converted into a selection of six flats. A second floor would then be constructed holding six more flats and the third and final floor would be built adding a further two homes.

The new proposal does not include dedicated parking spaces, but a report submitted alongside the application states this is unnecessary and may even be beneficial. The area is easily accessible for people who do not own cars and the absence of parking will encourage sustainable travel choices, helping ease traffic congestion and air pollution.

Architects in Macclesfield, Chester and other Cheshire locations are increasingly focused on more environmentally friendly features in their plans. The scheme will also add a cycle parking facility situated on the ground floor of the Macclesfield building.

The ambition of transforming the property into residences has already been established, with two prior planning applications to convert the first floor into apartments given approval by the council for Cheshire East. A final decision on the new project is expected on September 14.
