Handforth – Earl Road
The site is part of the former MU61 military storage facility which, apart from a brief period when it was used as airport car parking, has been vacant for many years. The site was marketed by CBRE in 2014 and in 2015, Cheshire East Council chose Alderley Edge based Consolidated Property Group (CPG), as the preferred developer.
Engine of the North has worked closely with CPG to develop a mixed-use retail and leisure scheme on the site. The first phase has been successfully delivered and a planning application for the next two phases was submitted to Cheshire East Council in January 2016.

What’s happening now?
On 24 May 2017, Cheshire East Council’s Strategic Planning Board resolved to grant planning permission. The Secretary of State has decided to call-in the application and this will now be the subject of a public inquiry.
