Former Cheshire high school £47M redevelopment has been given approval.
Plans to redevelop a former Cheshire high school site with a mix of private and council homes have got the thumbs up from Cheshire West & Chester Council.
Developer Keepmoat will build 401 homes at the former Woodford Lodge High School site in Winsford.
The new housing scheme, which has been called Woodford Grange, spans 30 acres of brownfield and will provide home hunters and first time buyers with access to a collection of two, three and four bedroom properties under the government backed Help to Buy scheme.
There will be 130 affordable properties built on behalf of Cheshire West and Chester Council within the development – the first local authority houses built within the Borough for nearly 40 years.
Work is anticipated to start on site later this summer.
