MORE than 100 homes could be built in Daresbury if a proposed new development gets the green light.

Outline planning permission had already been secured last June for the site off Red Brow Lane, but now developer Castle Green Homes has submitted more detailed proposals which it hopes will be rubber-stamped by  Halton Council’s planning department.

The scheme would see 108 new properties built on 5.5 hectares of grassland bounded by Red Brow Lane to the north, Daresbury Park industrial estate to the east, and Bridgewater Canal and Keckwick brook to the west.

The homes would include 20, two bedroom houses, 64, three-bedroom properties and 24 houses with four bedrooms.

Of those, 13 of the two beds and 14 of three beds would be put on the market as ‘affordable housing’, with the developer currently in discussions with a social landlord.

A design and access statement prepared by property company Avison Young said the scheme formed part of the planned eastward extension of the Runcorn urban area.

It said: “For Sandymoor in particular, this is changing the character of the surrounding area, making it a more sustainable mixed-use area, including local centre uses, primary school and improved public transport connections.”

The statement said the proposals made for a ‘high quality’ residential development which would help create a ‘sustaibable mixed community’.

It added: “The proposals represent a sensitively designed scheme which strikes an acceptable balance between conserving and enhancing the natural environment and ensuring an appropriate, high quality architectural response.”

No date has yet been set for a decision.
