Land deal done for site to develop 70-home retirement scheme

Plans for the site

Anwyl Partnerships has acquired the former garden centre at the junction of Ladybridge Road/Mill Lane in Cheadle Hulme, for an undisclosed sum, with plans to create a retirement living development of up to 70 homes.

The professional consultant team led by Mosaic Town Planning has already begun the consultation process with the local community regarding the redevelopment of this brownfield site.

Anwyl Partnerships is inviting comments on the draft proposals over a four-week period beginning February 22, 2021.

The proposal will be designed to facilitate independent living, with optional care and support provision, in an attractive environment.

Additional facilities are likely to include an onsite bistro, café, and activity and function rooms, all of which could be made accessible to the general public.

Once delivered, all of the apartments will be affordable and prioritised for local people.

Sam Oliver, senior land manager at Anwyl Partnerships, said: “We have a rich history in delivering later living and healthcare developments, and have identified a clear need for this type of housing within Stockport.

“The local community will recognise the issues this site has posed for over a decade and I look forward to personally engaging with local people to help shape an exciting vision for the planned redevelopment.”

Anwyl Partnerships has amassed a wealth of experience in the extra care and retirement living sector having recently handed over 534 apartments with a further 420 apartments in the pipeline across the North West and North Wales.
