II.1.4)Short description:

Cheshire East Council’s (“the Council”) Local Plan creates a vision for the future which is to deliver jobs-led growth and sustainable vibrant communities. Affordable housing in Cheshire East plays a fundamental role in realising this ambition.

Whilst Cheshire East is not a stock holding authority, we have the responsibility of administering the Council’s Social Housing Waiting list and addressing housing need. We have seen an increased demand for social housing both for rent and to purchase.

The Council are committed to exploring ways to increase affordable housing provision and are looking at ways to utilise surplus land assets to bring forward this much needed provision as well as securing a financial receipt.

The former Hollins View Care Home off Clarke Terrace, Macclesfield has been declared surplus and consideration is being given to the development of an affordable housing scheme on the site.
