Liverpool property firm Renew Land Developments has unveiled plans for a new 1,000-home village at Alsager’s White Moss Quarry site.

Also included in the project is a care facility with space for between 100 and 150 beds, along with amenities such as a pub, a medical centre, a daycare centre, and retail units. No doubt companies providing loft conversions in Cheshire will be looking forward to the inevitable increases in demand.

Renew Land Developments’ director, Lee Dawkin, spoke of the proposals:

“This a great opportunity for the creation of an entirely new village within Cheshire East on an area of land which, although not strictly classified as brownfield, has been badly disturbed over a long period of time.

“The response from local businesses has been positive as they’ve been quick to recognise the benefits the development will bring to the area.”

Mr Dawkin went on to say that his team has done everything it can to work with locals to make sure the plans are clear. He said that the company has not only consulted with the public twice but has also worked with the parish and town councils. On top of this, White Moss Liaison Group members have been involved in bringing the application forward.

Alan Thornley from Civitas Planning, which has been working with Renew on the project, said that funding will be offered to the local council throughout the initial stages to ensure schools, highways and other existing services can be upgraded where necessary.
