Community boost from new homes in Poynton

Community boost from new homes in Poynton

Construction of new homes in Poynton will see almost £1.8 million invested in the local community.

Elan Homes has committed to a package of planning gain measures to support the growth of the area, linked to its forthcoming Hazelfields development.

The homebuilder has secured planning approval for the scheme having amended the design of the properties following a previous approval.

Work on the 20.45 acre site is due to start this summer with 133 new homes set to be built across 7.47 acres, with the balance taken up by open space and woodland.

Elan Group Technical Director Shaun McCarthy said: “We worked closely with Cheshire East Council’s urban design team to devise an attractive development that will cater for local housing needs. There’s a pent up demand for quality housing across Cheshire, Stockport and the wider Manchester commuter belt and our Hazelfields development will help address that need by delivering 133 new homes. We’ll be providing 93 private sale properties, plus 40 affordable homes. We’ll also make a substantial investment in the area with funding allocated towards highways improvements, healthcare, education and other facilities locally. 

“We hope to start the initial enabling works during the school summer holidays to minimise any disruption to our neighbours at Lower Park Primary School.”

Hazelfields is due to launch towards the end of the year, offering a choice of private sale properties including one and two-bedroom apartments, plus three to five-bedroom homes.

The 40 affordable homes will include 26 properties available for rent and 14 available for shared ownership.
