  • Overview

    Glebe Farm, Middlewich

    As you may be aware 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.

    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.  Taylor Wimpey have circulated a newsletter to over 800 local residents and businesses informing them of our proposals.  Please click here to see a copy.

    The approved planning permission established the principle for residential development. Taylor Wimpey has 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.
