The developer is currently preparing a full planning application to be submitted to Cheshire East Council.

A New Care Home

Our proposals include a new care home, comprising:

  • 60 care beds;
  • 40 car parking spaces;
  • Staff facilities;
  • Administrative offices; and
  • A guest suite.

Holly Tree House will be replaced by a new “village” centre, which will include the following recreational and entertainment facilities:

  • a swimming pool;
  • a gym and fitness suite;
  • a library;
  • a cinema; and
  • a bar/café

The new hub will also include the 14 close-care units for residents requiring additional support and 45 car parking spaces for residents, staff and visitors.

Extra Care Retirement Apartments & Site Grounds

A number of smaller extra care apartments and recreational facilities will be constructed on the grounds of Holly Tree House as part of the care home facilities. This will deliver:

  • 72 one-, two- and three-bed extra care apartments;
  • 72 car parking spaces;
  • Retention of existing Japanese water garden, tennis courts, putting green, boating and fishing lake and sensory gardens; and
  • A new bowling green, golf practice nets and allotments.

Creation of Two Woodland Walkways and a New Pedestrian Pavement for Pepper Street

Our proposals include the creation of two woodland walkways to the north of Holly Tree House, set either side of an existing bridle path. A new safe pedestrian footpath will also be created on Pepper Street, running from the site to Knutsford Road (A537), allowing local residents to explore the nearby countryside more safely.

Sustainable Transport Options for Connectivity for Residents and Staff

The scheme will incorporate a proposed pool of electric cars for residents to use on a booking system. This gives those living at the facility a more sustainable transport option and reduce the need for residents to have their own cars. Furthermore, there will be a shuttle bus for shift staff and residents to reduce the amount of journeys by individual cars, thus reducing the impact on the network.
