Bloor Homes given green light to build new homes in Brereton

Plans for a new housing development in Brereton on the rural edge of Holmes Chapel have been given the ‘go-ahead’ by officers at Cheshire East Council.

Detailed planning permission has been granted to build the first 76 homes on a 16-hectare site off London Road.

The development, known as Bloor Homes at Bluebell Green, will include a range of property types from two to five-bedroom homes, 23 of which will be provided as affordable housing.

In addition, Bloor Homes at Bluebell Green will also include eight hectares of public open space, a nature reserve, equipped play area, kick about area, and an informal amenity area.

The high demand for new build homes in Cheshire has resulted in the national housebuilder seeing an extremely positive response from prospective buyers who are interested in the new development.

Rhys Nicholson, Regional Managing Director at Bloor Homes North West, said: “We are pleased to have the planning permission for phase one from Cheshire East Council for our new development and we look forward to starting work on site in July.

“Outline planning permission for the 190 homes scheme was granted in October 2016. We are proud to be delivering carefully designed new homes in Brereton, which will cater for a range of buyers, from first time buyers to growing families and downsizers.

“Our sales office and showhomes are due to open early next year to allow prospective buyers to register their interest.”

As part of the Section 106 legal agreement with Cheshire East Council, Bloor Homes will provide £1,063,760 in financial contributions to the local area. This will include £550,376 towards highways improvements, £473,938 towards education, and funding for public rights of way improvements.
