A hotly debated set of plans to build houses on land that at one point formed part of the Cheshire green belt has been approved, to some uproar.
Over 170 homes are set to be built on a stud farm near Wilmslow, at Stanneylands Road. One reason why the green light was given is because the land itself lost their green belt status, with the Cheshire East Council doing their best to meet house-building targets.
Residents are largely very opposed to the scheme and have said that the area they plan on building the homes on has been ‘over-targeted’ by housing plans, however developers have said in return that their schemes are ‘sustainable’.
The homes in question are set to be built by Barratt and David Wilson Homes.
