THE developer planning to build part of a massive homes project in the town will showcase its plans at a public meeting next week.
Various builders want to put up a total of 500 properties on Rossfield Road. Westbury Homes is proposing to build about a fifth of these.
The company will present its plans at a public meeting and exhibition on Thursday, October 20, in the Civic Hall from 6-8.30pm. Adrian Donovan, land director for Westbury Homes, said: 'We are hoping for a strong turnout on the night.
'We are keen to show our proposed scheme to the residents of Ellesmere Port and assess their feedback. We want our scheme to be a sought-after and popular part of the development.'
Westbury submitted its plans to the borough council for its part of the proposed development on the Peel Investments land. The company aims to build 113 residential units, comprising 27 apartments together with a mix of 96 two- and three-storey townhouses and detached homes.
A quarter of the proposed properties would be affordable housing, in line with the council's guidelines.
The scheme has been put together by Westbury and the borough's senior planning team.
Also involved in the process were representatives from the county council's highways and leisure services departments.
The land has outline planning permission for residential development and Westbury says it is working hard to ensure its scheme meets all the requirements laid down by the local authorities. The proposed site will include a large area of public green space, together with a children's play area.
The scheme has been designed to create small clusters of houses on quiet cul-de-sacs, providing interesting focal lines.
