FUTURE ∙CURRENT∙ PAST
Booths Park, Knutsford
The partnership is seeking to bring forward a phased development of around 150 houses with generous open spaces, suitable for the setting within Booths Park. The type and mix of homes will address significant identified local demand for a cross section of homes for first time buyers and downsizers. These include family housing, bungalows and efficiently designed apartments offered at genuinely affordable prices.
The proposed site has been confirmed as safeguarded land for future residential development through its allocation by Cheshire East Council in the Local Plan.
Bruntwood and Hillcrest Homes will shortly launch a public consultation on the masterplan for the proposals. A public exhibition is planned for Friday 16th November in Booths Hall, 3.30pm to 7.30pm. The masterplan recognises the proximity of the site to Booths Hall and will seek to open the Park for wider public access. The proposal will look at enhancing the leisure potential of the Mere and deliver new public pathways across Booths Park. In addition, there is an ongoing dialogue with Knutsford’s GP surgeries which could see much needed new medical facilities incorporated within the plans.
Hillcrest Homes and Bruntwood will be entering into a period of consultation with the residents of Knutsford to present their vision for the site and seek comments on the plans.
In addition to the public exhibition on Friday 16th November, information about the proposals will be available online.
