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

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
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.
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.
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.
Our proposal also includes the provision of two areas of equipped play: LEAP (Locally Equipped Area of Play); and NEAP (Neighbourhood Equipped Area of Play)
