Current proposal

As you will see, not that much effort has gone into this half hearted attempt and the content is full of questionable statements. The suggestion that the golf course is “not viable as a business” is completely untrue; even in the current economic climate the golf course has been successful, but has slowly been damaged by the present owner (since May 2011) in an attempt to push this proposal through the council.

Remember, the majority of what you see on the plans is directed at what they think Cheshire East would like as part of the deal; the plans have already changed a few times to suit!



Brief information

Haddon Property Developments Ltd want to build ~900 new properties, retail units (shops and offices) primary school, sports ground and a public house on the entire Gorstyhill golf course and open countryside around Wychwood Village. The area is situated in South East Cheshire, this is not in line with the local town plan of Crewe and its surrounding areas and is unsympathetic to the existing developments at Wychwood Village and Wychwood Park.
