Three major planning applications for new homes in Henbury, Macclesfield have been approved at the Cheshire East Strategic Planning Board.

GVA HOW Planning acted for Jones Homes, Redrow, and brewery company, Frederic Robinson’s. Frederic Robinson’s owns one of the sites, which is supported by Bellway Homes as a potential future developer. Collectively, up to 398 houses will be delivered across the three sites, 30% of which will be affordable homes.

All the sites were allocated for development in the Cheshire East Local Plan. GVA HOW Planning acted for Jones Homes and Redrow to secure the initial allocation and has been retained by both housebuilders, along with Robinson’s, to promote the outline planning applications.

Gary Halman from GVA HOW Planning, who advised on the sites, said: “We are absolutely delighted with this result. Cheshire East and Macclesfield in particular, urgently need new homes and investment. Realising high quality development on allocated sites such as these is critical to the council’s forward land supply. Jones Homes, Redrow and Frederic Robinson’s have put plans forward for high quality schemes, which can now deliver almost 400 open market and affordable homes for local families in a desirable and accessible setting.”
