Proposed Development

Glebe Lane

Middlewich, CW10 0RP

A new development of 404 new homes is coming soon to Middlewich

The former owners of the site known as Glebe Farm secured outline planning permission in 2018 to build up to 450 homes on land located between Warmingham Lane and Booth Lane (ref: 13/3449C).

The approved development will also deliver a new retail store, public open spaces, new pedestrian and cycle routes and play facilities. Two new vehicular accesses will be created in order to serve the development, one  is located off Booth Lane and another off Warmingham Lane.

The approved planning permission established the principle for residential development. Taylor Wimpey has now purchased the site and submitted an application called the ‘Reserved Matters’ which will seek approval of the detailed matters and design proposals such as the layout, scale, appearance of our homes and landscaping proposals.  To see a copy of the planning application, please click here.

Homes proposed

The site known as Glebe Farm secured outline planning permission in 2018 to build up to 450 homes on land located between Warmingham Lane and Booth Lane (ref: 13/3449C). Taylor Wimpey have purchased the site to bring forward and build the development. 

The site will deliver new homes in a sustainable location and will create new routes and accessibility to open spaces within the site for new and existing residents. The development will also bring economic benefits to the local area. The principles and design aspirations for the new residential development have been established under the approved Cheshire East Design Guide. We are proposing the development of 404 new homes within a scheme which has been designed in accordance with the principles established under the outline permission:

The creation of a neighbourhood which integrates with the existing community. We are proposing a mix of detached, semi-detached and mews homes ranging in size between one and four bedrooms.

History of the site

The 37.81 acre (15.3 hectares) greenfield site is located within the southern urban edge of Middlewich in this jurisdiction of Cheshire East. The  majority of the site was historically used for agricultural purposes and livestock grazing as well as an area west of Booth Lane was used a sport pitches until the land was secured for it’s disposal. 
This site is located between both Booth Lane to the east and Warmingham Lane to the west which is the two main vehicular and pedestrian access points have been proposed. The site is located approximately 2km to the south east of Middlewich town centre. It is well connected to the centre via the A553 which runs along the north-eastern boundary of the subject site.

A semi-urban location, the site is situated on the settlement edge of Middlewich bounded by existing residential development to the north. To the west the site borders Booth Lane and rear gardens of existing properties which front onto Booth Lane and the Salt Works. To the east is Warmingham Lane which over looks more open agricultural land and a parcel of land which recently received planning permission for residential development. While the southern border of the site benefits from outlooks of open fields and agricultural use.
 

Community benefits

We will be making financial contributions towards the provision of the new Middlewich Eastern Bypass and towards the improvement and enhancement of sport pitches and sports facilities at Sutton Lane.
During construction 138 direct construction jobs and supply chain jobs will be created per annum.  Please contact us if you are interested in hearing more about this, employment and apprenticeships on the development and with Taylor Wimpey. It is estimated that 174 indirect and direct jobs could be supported per year of build.  An expected £22.3 million additional Gross Value Added (GVA) will be generated per year from direct and indirect jobs
Once people move in £2.2 million is estimated to be spent in the local area on goods and services as they move in to the new houses to make them feel like a home. The total amount anticipated to be spent by residents of the new development is £6.1 million per year. Furthermore, It is estimated additional Council Tax receipts on the new homes will equate to (approx.) £707,000 per year.
 

Open spaces

The approved development will also deliver public open spaces, new pedestrian and cycle routes and play facilities. Further, a new retail store will be build on the development. 
The incorporation of significant areas of Public Open Space (POS) which will include a linear park, nature area and wetland areas which enhances the existing ponds on site
Attractive landscaped areas with publicly accessible open green spaces and tree lined street. Retention of existing trees and ponds where possible and this will be enhanced with new hedgerow and additional buffer planting. New pedestrian links across the scheme which will be accessible to new residents and existing

The approved development will also deliver a new retail store.  Two new vehicular accesses will be created in order to serve the development, one is located off Booth Lane and another off Warmingham Lane.
