The development would provide high-quality family housing and apartments, bringing life back to a site which has now stood vacant for a number of years.
This website provides the details of the proposed development and seeks the comments and feedback of the local community. This is an opportunity for residents to comment at an early stage of the design process and to help inform the final scheme, before a planning application is submitted to the Council.
We will be holding a consultation event at the Hollin House Hotel, Bollington on Monday 2nd September, from 6:30pm to 8pm. The plans will be available to view, members of the design team will be present to answer questions, and response forms will be available.
The site is currently vacant, with a number of buildings demolished following the grant of an earlier planning permission for the residential redevelopment of the site. All that remains on site is the mill building and the wheelhouse.
The site is in a sensitive location adjacent to the Green Belt boundary, area of special county value for landscape and a site of nature conservation importance. In addition, the site is located with the Bollington Conservation Area.
Since December 2009 the site has benefitted from planning permission (reference: 08/0791P) for the conversion of the mill to 24 apartments, the erection of 24 apartments and 18 townhouses with associated landscaping and car parking. A subsequent application (reference: 10/3279M) to vary certain conditions, to allow demolition works to take place as a first stage of the development, was approved in September 2010.
The above planning permission has been implemented by the demolition of the buildings that previously stood on the site, and so the permission remains capable of completion as approved.
Following the grant of planning permission and works to clear the site, it has stood vacant and progress on site has stalled.
The site has now been purchased by Brinkley Bollington Ltd who are keen to move the site forward and deliver much needed family homes.
An application is currently being considered by Cheshire East Council to vary the existing planning permission (reference: 19/2624M) to allow for the controlled demolition of the remains of the mill building, and to remove a potential health and safety hazard as the mill is currently at risk of collapse.
As outlined, Ingersley Vale Works has an extensive planning history, and the immediate site surroundings have seen many development proposals in recent years. Therefore, the design team are eager to engage with the community at this early stage in the planning process to respond to any feedback and inform the final development proposals.
Central to the proposals is the rebuilding of the former mill building, preserving the local historic interest of the site.
The proposed dwellings and apartments would be located to the east of Ingersley Vale. The team have adopted a traditional design approach in developing the proposals, in keeping with the character of Bollington.
In addition to delivering the much-needed high-quality family homes, the proposals would also facilitate improvements to the landscaping within the site.
