Chester Road

Chester Road - Tattenhall - Cheshire - CH3

Up to 110 new high quality homes suitable for growing families, first-time buyers and those looking to downsize to smaller properties.

  • Overview

    New homes designed for Tattenhall

    We would like to show you the proposals for a new sustainable and high-quality residential development at land off Chester Road, Tattenhall. 

    Tattenhall is a vibrant village. It has a strong sense of community and offers a host of services and facilities. It also has good road and rail connections, with Chester, Whitchurch and Wrexham within a reasonable distance.

    These attributes make the village a sustainable location for new homes. To maximise the sustainability of new homes they are best placed adjoining existing housing and where they can easily access the local shops, services and community facilities by foot and cycling. This will allow new development to integrate with the village and its residents to make a positive contribution to the vitality and viability of Tattenhall's sustainable rural community.

  • About the site

    Why the Chester Road site?

    The Chester Road site forms a natural extension to the settlement, adjoining existing residential development and being located in close proximity to the heart of the village. The site rounds off the western edge of the village to balance recent developments to the south and east.

    The site's location will encourage new residents to interact with the existing community which we believe will ensure and strengthen its long-term future.

    The site is well placed to accommodate a spacious housing development which respects its setting as it extends to 5.5 Ha in size and is bordered to the east and south by existing housing, and contained to the west by mature hedgerows. It holds a handful of mature trees which provide character, and has a gently sloping terrain to allow the development to form a sensitive new edge to the village.

    The site provides an opportunity to create a high quality outward looking gateway to the village, to improve the current view of rear garden fences. New homes facing a landscaped rural fringe will provide a high quality entrance to reflect the character of the village.

    The benefits for Tattenhall and the local community

    With new homes come facilities and local improvements which could not otherwise be created or sustained. Taylor Wimpey would like the development at Chester Road to become a valuable addition to the community in Tattenhall. We believe these proposals can offer a range of benefits for both existing and new residents, including the following:

    • Provision of a mix of housing types to meet the needs of existing residents
    • Homes for new families and young couples to move into the village
    • Provision of homes for downsizers and suitable for the elderly
    • New affordable housing to help address local affordability issues
    • Provision of significant areas of new open space which retain mature trees on the site and encourage accessibility to new wildlife and biodiversity features
    • Contributions to improve education facilities at a primary and secondary level where required 
      • Provision of a bus shelter along Tattenhall Road (south of its junction with Park Avenue)
      • Associated works to upgrade the bus stops on High Street (outside the Post Office)
    • Circa £1.5m per annum of extra local expenditure by the new residents to support the future vitality and viability of existing shops, services and community groups/organisations
    • Creation of 68 jobs a year during construction, with apprenticeship opportunities
    • Approximately £1m investment from the New Homes Bonus Scheme (NHBS) provided to the council. The aim of the NHBS is to benefit local communities by investing in the area surrounding a new development
