Anwyl Homes is pleased to announce that planning consent has been granted for its proposed residential development in Handforth, Cheshire.

The planning application for 224 new homes on land located off Hampson Crescent was unanimously approved by Cheshire East Council at planning committee on 18th December 2019.

The 20 acre site was purchased by Anwyl earlier in the year from land owner HIMOR Group, which benefited from outline planning permission for up to 250 homes.

The development, which will provide a range of one, two, three, four and five bedroom new homes, 30% of which will be affordable homes, is the first in Handforth for the award-winning housebuilder.

Phil Dolan, managing director of Anwyl Homes Cheshire and North Wales, comments: “We are delighted that planning consent has been granted and are thrilled that our proposed development was supported unanimously by Cheshire East Council.

“Having acquired the land earlier this year on an unconditional basis, in what must have been one of the quickest property deals in the North West in 2019, we have worked hard to create a scheme that offers kerb appeal combined with a superb range of homes surrounded by vast areas of open green spaces and retained and enhanced landscapes.

“We are proud of our award-winning product, with each home thoughtfully designed and featuring a superior specification.  We are really excited to commence with our first foundations in January 2020 with the initial infrastructure works already underway.

“This will be a flagship development for the business demonstrating our continued and sustained commitment to the North West and particularly Cheshire property market.”
