Handforth Earl Road benefits from an allocation as an employment site within the existing Macclesfield Local Plan. It is strategically located adjacent to the A34 - a key route between North-East Cheshire and Manchester.
The site is approximately six hectares in size and enjoys a very prominent location. It was previously leased to provide airport parking for around 3000 vehicles. Following numerous expressions of interest from various sectors and a successful Planning Application by Next for retail use on part of the site, CBRE has been appointed to market the site for sale. Subject to planning consent being granted, the disposal is likely to be on a phased plot basis that has the potential to deliver various uses including employment, retail, leisure, car showroom and offices.
