Leighton Plans Approved

Leighton West, Crewe

Two plans totalling 1,250 homes in the Leighton area of the town have been approved by Cheshire East Council and stand to benefit from a £36.5m highways expansion project nearby.

Congratulations to Bloor Homes, Vistry Partnerships, and Cheshire East Council’s Economic Development Team (formerly Engine of the North) on the recent announcement that both the Leighton West (North) and Leighton West (South) planning applications in Crewe have been approved.

This project is the culmination of years of hard work by the project team, led by planning advisors Avison Young. TEP has a long history of involvement with this site; we were first brought on board in 2013 to carry out habitat, bat, and amphibian surveys for the scheme. Since then, we have worked closely with Avison Young and undertaken a range of assessments to support the project, including surveying the trees, invertebrates, badgers, and hedgerows. TEP also carried out landscape and visual assessments for both developments and designed a biodiverse landscape framework for Leighton West (North). By working closely with TEP’s ecologists, the project achieved an onsite Biodiversity Net Gain of well over 10% – an incredible result for this type of constrained site.
