Former bible college and gardens, London Road

Developers want to build 60 new homes on land at the former bible college off London Road, Nantwich.

Plans show old student accommodation blocks would be knocked down to make way for new  family homes within the grounds.

But the original theological college building, nursery, and associated outbuildings now forming part of the Regents Park business area would remain.

Developer Stewart Milne Homes wants to erect a mix of apartments, detached and semi-detached houses on the land.

Published plans show homes would go on the old sports hall and green area to the north west of the site, as well as to the east close to houses on St Joseph’s Way.

It would include one block of 12 apartments with associated parking. Public green space would be retained on some parts of the site.

The design statement by Turley Associates says: “The site is well positioned for local transport connections, established neighbourhoods and community facilities.

“It reflects the retention of existing trees, provision of public green space, and the varied density of surrounding housing.

“And the size and mix of dwellings responds to local needs, including two and three-bed affordable housing.”

People have until January 30 to submit their views on the proposals to Cheshire East Council, with a decision likely to be made by the end of February.

  1. This proposal, according to the planning weekly list, comes under “Land at Cog Training Centre”, Crewe Road, Nantwich. My first reaction was where is this? Thank you for bringing this to the attention of your readers, as I have not seen any notices either on street or in the local press regarding this application.
