Cheshire East Council is looking to build some affordable housing on a Council-owned site in the Alderley Edge.
The council's wholly-owned company Engine of the North is looking to develop a small site in the village which lies within the Green Belt for a limited number of affordable dwellings.
However, at this stage Cheshire East Council will not reveal the exact location of the site as there are apparently issues to be resolved over the freehold.
Councillor Craig Browne said "I have had sight of the outline plans, which originally were for twelve semi-detached units, although I have suggested that it might be a good idea to incorporate a couple of bungalows into the final plans."
He added "I have been assured that the dwellings will be reserved for local people and will be available at approximately a 50% discount on the open market valuation. Currently, many young people who grow up in our village have to leave once they become adults, because there are simply no affordable starter homes available for them and for this reason, I am supportive of the proposals, in principle."
Local residents have been sent a Housing Needs Survey to complete by Cheshire East as they are seeking more detail about the current and future affordable housing needs within Alderley Edge Parish.
The covering letter states "Whether you consider yourself to have a housing need or not, the information that you provide is important."
Councillor Craig Browne explained "Although the site is previously developed land, it is technically within the Green Belt and this is why Engine of the North is obliged to carry out a housing needs survey before taking things anything further.
"I would encourage everyone to complete the survey, but if anyone has any questions, invite them to send me an email or drop in at my next surgery on Saturday 25th March at Aldeli."
Residents are requested to complete the survey and return in the pre-paid envelope by Friday, 21st April.
