Plans for the development of a new housing site for 100 homes on the northern edge of the Countess of Chester Hospital are to be unveiled by NHS Property Services on July 31.
The proposed development is located between the Countess of Chester Hospital and the Morris Homes development at Upton Dene.
The land is surplus to NHS requirements and is identified for future development in Cheshire West and Chester Council’s Local Plan.
The site is also located adjacent to the new Countess of Chester Country Park, a green space for the community, managed by a national land management charity, The Land Trust, which is now open to the public and due to be officially opened in September.
The potential scheme is proposing up to 100 quality homes and excellent open spaces that will add value to the existing parkland areas.
It is intended that the existing landmark water tower on the site will be retained and that the housing scheme will be designed to enhance accessibility to the country park.
The public exhibition is to be held for local residents and other interested parties to view the detailed masterplan for the development site and will be held at 1829 Building, Countess of Chester Health Park, Liverpool Road, Chester on July 31, from 3.30-8pm.
All members of the public are welcome to visit the exhibition to view the plans, talk to the developers and their professional team, and are encouraged to provide important feedback to the development team regarding this next stage of the development.
It is intended that an outline planning application for the site will be submitted to Cheshire West and Chester Council in due course.
