Latest Warrington residential project given green light

The Mersey Street plans

North West architectural practice Falconer Chester Hall has secured planning permission for a residential development on Mersey Street, Warrington.

The new-build scheme will provide a 10-storey, 80-apartment development complete with residents’ rooftop garden and two commercial units on the ground floor.

The existing buildings on site will be demolished to make way for the new scheme that has been designed for CPP Holdings UK.

Mike Gore, Falconer Chester Hall director, said: “The materials palette selected for this development, which includes aluminium cladding, bronze aluminium windows and perforated panels complements the local area, whilst tying the proposed scheme into the newly-developed Bridge Street Quarter.”

He added: “This residential development will bring a vibrancy to the area and will hopefully encourage further investment and regeneration.

“We are delighted that planning permission has been granted at the planning hearing today (April 14).

Geoff Underhill, managing partner, at Abacus Solicitors in Stockton Heath and spokesperson for CCP Holdings UK, said: “Warrington is changing rapidly and our project will add to the momentum being built around Time Square and from the council’s wider regeneration plans.

“We’re pleased that the planning committee shared our vision and will now be discussing with housing associations and registered providers how they can participate in the scheme.”

Joseph Connelly, of Abacus Solicitors, advised on the project. Other consultants on the scheme include Zerum (planning), Layer Landscapes (landscape architecture) and Evolve Project Consultants.

Abacus Solicitors provided legal advice to the developer.
