Shavington Triangle homes planning approval

More than 150 new homes have been given planning permission in the Shavington triangle, writes Ethan Davies.

Cheshire East’s Strategic Planning Board voted unanimously today (Feb 24) to allow phase two of development within the area, despite concerns over drainage and flooding.

As part of the permission, which will see 152 homes built with 47 marked as affordable housing, developers will have to set up a residents’ liaison committee, and increase planting in public spaces.

Agent Adele Jakes, representing Persimmon Homes, told the CEC committee: “We understand the concerns of local residents on flooding.

“The scheme has been designed with a network of flood attenuation and pipes to manage water across the site and slowly release water into the Cheer Brook.

“It has been approved by the council’s own flood risk team, the Environment Agency, and United Utilities.

“We have also provided further measures in the buffer [zone] to provide a belt and braces design.

“We are also willing to set up the residents’ liaison group to ensure residents have a dedicated point of contact with the company and to ensure any issues are resolved swiftly.”

Concerns were also raised by parish councillors that amenities promised in phase one of the development had not been delivered.

They included a play area, community orchard, and green space.

In response, Ms Jakes said that Persimmon had not previously owned all of the land required to carry out the work — but it now had that ownership.

She added that she would expect the work to be completed or significantly progressed within 18 months, with updates being provided via the liaison committee — which could begin setting up within the next two weeks.

    Because all the others are paying for the affordable ones nice touch eh, I wonder if there are affordable other ideas too? Why buy new when they behave like that

    I just LOVE the idea of developers building 105 unaffordable homes. Could someone tell me what is the purpose of building them if no-one can afford them?
