Forge Lane


This scheme of 100% affordable homes is being developed in partnership with affordable housing provider Great Places and the Homes and Communities Agency. The new scheme will provide 14 properties in total. The homes are designed for families and are either 2 or 3 bedroomed in size.  All of the properties are to be built to code for sustainable homes level 3 and the latest HCA design standards.

Planning permission was granted on this greenfield site as it adjoins the urban area of Congleton. Leading Manchester planning consultants Mosaic Town Planning dealt with the application for MCI.

“We are delighted to be working with Great Places again. This scheme in Congleton proved to be a real challenge in planning terms. The resultant proposals are of highest quality and the significant upgrade of the road network will be an asset for Cheshire East and residents alike. Our consultants Mosaic have again done a tremendous job with this site given the onerous policy nature of Cheshire East.”
