Basford West

Basford West is a Regional Strategic Employment Site and as such Spawforths secured planning permission for major employment activities on it pre-recession. Due to the economic downturn and high abnormal development costs, Spawforths reassessed the opportunity and secured planning permission for a residential led mixed use scheme. These higher value uses cross enabled the delivery of the employment space and our Clients, Goodman, are currently on site delivering the key road and drainage infrastructure. Cheshire East authority have refused many housing led schemes in advance of the adoption of their Local Plan, but Spawforths were able to secure their support for residential led mixed uses, to facilitate the employment development without having to resort to appeal. Spawforths are now advising Goodman on the implications of a proposed HS2 Depot on their land holding.
