Last night saw the public presentation of plans to develop the Barnes Hospital site in Cheadle. Unfortunately we local councillors were unable to attend as it clashed with Cheadle Area Committee.
Although we saw the presentation back in December, we would have liked to see it with residents and get more of a feel for people’s initial thoughts. If you were at the exhibition yesterday, do let us know what you think!
Here is the presentation material giving more information on the proposals – to convert the hospital itself into flats and build more houses and apartments around it on the site (so-called “enabling development” that allows the whole thing to stack up financially). In total around 300 new properties are planned, with a vehicle entrance on Kingsway and pedestrian/cycle access also to Mill Lane.
