Chelford groups to benefit from cash injection from Jones Homes

By on April 30, 2019

Chelford’s community groups will benefit from over £270,000 offered by Jones Homes.

The funding is being provided as part of its planning agreement for their 94-home development off Knutsford Road, known as Cricketers Green.

Construction work on the site is now in the final stages on the former Eddie Stobart haulage depot.

£75,000 will be allocated to local groups, which could include local community centres, youth clubs and possibly creating new community facilities. £195,000 has been allocated as investment in education and local schools, and an additional contribution to improve off-site open spaces could benefit sports facilities in Chelford.

The development will also have a large open space that can be used by the entire village. There will also be a play area for children and a free-play space with footpaths and seats.

Gemma Pownall, sales director for Jones Homes North West, said: “Cricketers Green is a fantastic example of how brownfield sites can be transformed to help meet the needs of local people. The development has been extremely successful and is becoming an attractive and popular place to live. Jones Homes is a local company and we always work to embed our new homes firmly within the existing community. In the case of Cricketers Green, we are pleased that our planning contributions are being invested in good causes in the village and supporting education, so the whole community will experience some benefit.”

Jones Homes is building three to five-bedroom homes at Cricketers Green and the last few homes are now available for sale. A new show home, five-bedroom detached The Latchford II, is open daily. For more information see or call 01625 861642.
