Site Considerations

Information about the site we need to take into account

Before we start drawing up a new scheme we complete an assessment of the site and the surrounding area, which we need to take into account in our design.

At the first consultation we advised that we were in the process of identifying the opportunities and constraints of the Wrexham Road site. This work is shown below.

First Consultation

Our first masterplan for Wrexham Road, Chester

At the first consultation we set out our vision for the development of the site.

  1. Access to public open space
  2. A new primary school
  3. A new health centre
  4. Local amenities - convenience stores, public house
  5. Retention and improved setting of the Scheduled Ancient Monument (SAM)
  6. Retention of hedgerows and trees where possible
  7. A mix of two, three, four and five bedroom houses and one and two bedroom apartments
  8. A combination of two, two-and-a-half and three storey housing and apartments

  10. Provision of extensive cycleway/footways
