The land has been bought from Ainscough Strategic Land, who have  already secured outline planning permission for the proposed scheme in September this year.

Bloor have submitted a planning permission request for the estate specifically, which would include one, two, three, four and five bedroom homes. 39 out of the 129 will be affordable housing, and 0.9 hectares of public open space will be provided, including a new play area. They would also need to contribute £1.6 million to spend in the local community.

Rhys Nicholson, from Bloor Homes, said: “This site represents an opportunity to provide much-needed high-quality new homes in Poynton and is a fantastic addition to our growing portfolio. Poynton is a great town and its potential for growth has been recognised by Cheshire East Council in its local Plan. The site is close to Poynton’s town centre, with its variety of restaurants, shops, schools and good transport links. We are confident this new development will attract a high level of demand from buyers.”

The site was identified for residential housing in Cheshire East Council’s Local Plan, which will see 650 new homes built in Poynton between now and 2030.
