Proposals submitted for regeneration of derelict Delamere site

Following extensive consultation with Delamere and Oakmere residents we have submitted our plans for the regeneration of the derelict former Marley Tile Works site, off Station Road, Delamere to Cheshire West and Chester Council.

The scheme will deliver up to 180 market and affordable homes (30 per cent) with a mix of 2, 3, 4 and 5 bedroom properties including 15 houses reserved for people over the age of 55.

The development will contribute to the conservation and enhancement of the natural environment by replacing a derelict industrial site with a scheme comprised of 55 per cent green space and by developing a site of lesser environmental value than greenfield sites elsewhere in the borough.

As well as new homes, the scheme will provide an area for allotments, children's play areas and green open space benefiting new residents and the wider Delamere community. Land has also been retained for the proposed 'multi-user' route linking Delamere and Oakmere and financial contributions will be made for improvements to Delamere Community Centre.

Our plans will help support and enhance local services, through facilitating the delivery of broadband, and by bringing a gas main along Station Road , as well as contributing to the long-term viability of existing local services.  Approximately £626,000 will go to towards local schools.

The regeneration scheme will also contribute to local traffic calming and access improvements along Station Road to the benefit of all road users. In addition, the plans include measures that will significantly reduce surface water run-off, reducing flood risk both on and off site.

Steve Melligan, Strategic Land Manager, said: "We are pleased that after extensive consultation with the local community we are now ready to submit our plans for the regeneration of this site.

"Our proposals have been shaped by the feedback received from local residents and will enhance the natural environment, facilitate the delivery of key utilities to the area, whilst also delivering high quality market and affordable homes, as well as homes for older people."
