Plans have been submitted for the first residential development at Alderley Park, the former AstraZeneca campus.
Last year Cheadle-based developer PH Homes purchased 13 acres of land from Bruntwood and Manchester Science Partnerships (MSP), owners of the 400-acre site.
They have now submitted plans for 74 homes, which includes 73 new dwellings along with the renovation and extension of the Gardener's Cottage. The scheme includes new internal roads, boundary treatments and associated landscaping and infrastructure.
The mixture of dwellings will comprise of two 2-bedroom properties; sixteen 3-bedroom; thirty 4-bedroom; nineteen 5-bedroom and seven 6-bedroom homes.
This is the first residential phase of the £160 million Masterplan which will eventually see up to 275 homes, new sports and leisure facilities, including a gastro pub, hotel and farm shop. These projects sit alongside the on-going creation of some 38,000 sq m of state-of-the-art of new space for life sciences in addition to over 100,000 sq m of space for life sciences already in place.
The proposals received planning permission from Cheshire East Council in February 2016, therefore this is a reserved matters application dealing the outstanding details of the outline application proposal, such as appearance, access, landscaping, layout and scale.
This residential development is for four of the residential 'parcels' in the South Campus of Alderley Park. These 'parcels', as designated in the approved outline application documents, are The Ride, Alderley House (now referred to as Linear Park), The Serpentine and The Vale and they extend to approximately 7 acres of developable land.
The last date for submitting comments is Thursday, 5th January, and a decision is expected by March 6th. The plans can be viewed on the Cheshire East Council website by searching for planning reference 16/5853M
PH Homes are hopeful that construction works will commence in the Spring.
Philip Hughes, Managing Director of PH Homes said "This is an incredibly exciting project not just for us, but for the people of this part of Cheshire.
"Alderley Park is a truly stunning location with a rich history, and we can promise it will be an incredible place to live."
