Developer Sought For New Cheshire Village Development

A partnership between Wellcome and Alpraham Parish Council is set to deliver a new mixed use development to the village of Alpraham in Cheshire.

Working in partnership with the Parish Council, Wellcome, via their managing agents, Bidwells, has secured outline planning permission for a new village hall / pavilion, enhanced recreational facilities, a community orchard and 20 residential dwellings on land just to the south of the village centre. At least thirty percent of the dwellings must be affordable and will help support the needs of the local community.

Legat Owen have been instructed to market the 3.05-acre development site opportunity and identify a preferred developer to take forward and deliver the project.

Director of Legat Owen Stephen Wade commented:

This scheme demonstrates the positive benefits that a well thought through planning application can deliver for the local community. Wellcome and Alpraham Parish Council have had the vision to bring forward a development that will deliver a new heart to the community and will provide a lasting benefit for future generations.

I see this very much as a model which other Parish Council’s may wish to replicate in order to enhance their community facilities.
