Countryside Partnerships and Torus have launched a consultation on a masterplan and design code to inform redevelopment proposals for more than 150 acres bordering the M62.
The developers acquired the Peel Hall site in Warrington from Satnam Investments early this year for around £110m, as revealed by Place North West.
The site, bordering the M62 to the north and Poplars Avenue, Windermere Avenue and Grasmere Avenue to the south, benefits from outline planning permission for 1,200 homes, which was granted following an appeal.
Now, Countryside and Torus are seeking feedback on proposals that will inform a reserved matters planning application, due to be submitted this autumn.
Alison Bembenek, associate director at Lichfields, which is advising on planning, said: “We’re excited to be working with Countryside Partnerships in bringing this consultation forward, we hope the events are well attended and look forward to engaging with the community on this scheme”.
As well as homes, the wider Peel Hall masterplan could feature a primary school, local centre, care home, and family pub or restaurant.
Subject to planning approval, construction could start in the middle of 2024, with the first homes due to be available the following year.
The project team comprises architect Baldwin Design Consultancy, planner Lichfields, and Shape Engineering.
Of the 1,200 homes, around 360 will be available on affordable tenures.
The market sale homes will be delivered under three Countryside brands, Countryside itself, Linden Homes, and Bovis Homes.
The developers are to provide around £9.3m of S106 contributions for education, highway improvements, bus infrastructure improvements, and biodiversity net gain.
