King’s School, Macclesfield

Hillcrest has purchased a landmark site on Cumberland Street in Macclesfield Town Centre from The King’s School. The School commenced work on a state-of-the-art new facility in Summer 2018 and will vacate the Cumberland Street site approx Summer 2020.

Hillcrest will shortly be staging public consultation events prior to submitting plans to Cheshire East Council proposing the restoration and conversion of the school’s period buildings for sensitive redevelopment into attractive luxury apartments. In addition, Hillcrest will propose crafting a number of high quality new build homes designed specifically for the site and sensitively positioned around the existing cricket green. If planning is successful, the gates and a large part of the green will be preserved.

The new scheme is being delivered in partnership with The King’s School and is the result of months of close negotiations led by Hillcrest’s new Managing Director, James Payne.
