Campaigners fighting to prevent more housing development in the Stapeley area of Nantwich have launched a new website to encourage others to join the protest.

The site,, highlights fears over potential development of 1,300 homes on land between Broad Lane, London Road,  Peter De Stapleigh Way, and the bridleway known as Deadman’s Lane.

The large slab of land, at the rear of Stapeley Water Gardens, has been identified by Cheshire East Council as development potential in its latest SHLAA.

And one developer, Muller Property, has now submitted a 52-page document to the council highlighting its desire to spearhead a massive development there.

Pat Cullen, of Bishop’s Wood, is one of the residents highlighting the plans and helped launch the protectstapeley site.

He said: “Like Kingsley Fields, the Stapeley area is still under consultation but the fact that it is under consultation means it could mean yet another large housing development in Nantwich.”

The new site is designed to carry the latest news on the development, including maps, planning documents, as well as contacts for local councillors and details of meetings.

“We need you support to stop this development,” said Pat.

“Nantwich and Stapeley residents must have a say in what happens to our local town and local area in the future.”

Muller Property claims the site is prime for development, stating it could lead to a re-location of facilities like Broad Lane School.

Its 52-page plan states it wants to create a “new community hub with a primary school and village green at its heart”.

Company boss Colin Muller, who lives in the area, told the Chronicle today (September 7) he was keen to handle “whatever goes on in Nantwich sensitively.”

Residents are being urged to attend a “Place Shaping” exhibition in Nantwich on Monday September 12 at Nantwich Civic Hall between midday and 7pm as a chance to air their views.
