Winstanley House, Knutsford

An update on the plans to redevelop a site in Knutsford formerly known as Winstanley House. Demolition is complete and the designs are in for planning. Last updated: 16 March 2022.

The planning process

A planning application has been submitted and validated by Cheshire East Council and they have assigned a planning officer.

Application No: 22/0566M

The Trust would like to build 28 apartments

Social, Affordable or Intermediate Rent

1 Bedroom: 6

2 Bedroom: 16

Affordable Home Ownership

6 x  2 Bedroom

The garages next to this site

The garages that are adjacent to the former Winstanley House site are still standing, but they will also be redeveloped to provide car parking.

We will contact our customers who rent these garages as the planning process progresses. We will give them plenty of warning for when we will need vacant possession of these garages.

Meeting notes from 4 May
