MAJOR SCHEME FOR HOOTON BACKED BY COUNCILLORS

22 June 2012

A major plan to build 265 homes and a 72 bed care home together with a nature conservation area and children’s play spaces in Hooton, Ellesmere Port, has been backed by Councillors.

Members of Cheshire West and Chester Council’s Strategic Planning committee last night (Thursday) unanimously voted for the outline plan for the Roften Works which includes 68 affordable homes.

They also supported unanimously a separate planning application for the demolition of Hooton Village Memorial Hall and the building of a new community hall on its current site, as part of the overall scheme.

The scheme, by owners Burford Delta Limited, will now be sent to the Secretary of State to consider whether it should be called in for a public inquiry because the project is a departure from the Ellesmere Port and Neston Local Plan.

Councillors heard that if given approval, the developer would fund improvements to the junction of the A41 and Hooton Road and improvements would be made to the existing shop in Hooton Station, to increase the range of goods sold.
