Our proposals include a new care home, comprising:
Holly Tree House will be replaced by a new “village” centre, which will include the following recreational and entertainment facilities:
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.
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:
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.
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.
We are fully committed to engaging with the public in relation to these proposals. Before a planning application is submitted to Cheshire East Council, we want to hear your views. All feedback received will be considered and will help shape the final scheme.
