Development in Macclesfield gets green light

June 11, 2018 by  

A mixed development within Macclesfield’s Goodall Street secured planning permission recently.

The Goodall Street development will consist of housing and office space. Silkdale Living submitted plans to Cheshire East Council. The proposals received official approval because they have the potential to regenerate the area. Print shops in Macclesfield can be used by firms in the property sector. Silkdale Living’s Matthew Gibbons told the Macclesfield Express:

“We will be looking to use local suppliers and contractors as much as possible.”

Council officers approved the planning application using the authority which has been delegated to them. Town houses will be built next to a specialist care facility. The office accommodation will measure approximately 3,500 sq. ft.

David Wilcock is an architect who worked on the project. BAND Architects took on the task of designing the building. The idea was that there should be a close fit between the development and the unique character of the place. Nevertheless, the design is contemporary in style and modern construction methods shall be employed.

The housing will feature roof gardens. Goodall Street should have an attractive front when the work is finished. The developers want to maximise the room for living and they are hoping to provide excellent access to external areas.

BAND Architects are working with Silkdale Living on other initiatives within Macclesfield. The enterprises have nearly completed eight buildings in Loney Street.
