Hospital plans backed
DETAILS of a plan to build a new office block at the hospital have been approved.
Cheshire East councillors on the Northern Planning Committee unanimously approved a planning application for a twostorey office building for clinical and medical uses on land in the former ‘Blue Zone’. The site was occupied by the education and training building which was recently demolished.
Outline plans for the building had already been approved, but the latest ‘reserved matters’ application included details on scale, appearance and landscaping.
Coun Martin Hardy said: “It will be a real asset to the Blue Zone.”
The new offices form part of a major redevelopment project at the Blue Zone over recent years.
It is among plans for phase two of the redevelopment.
Phase two also includes converting the historic Henbury House and Ingersley Building into 36 apartments for doctors and nurses and the rest of the site will have 34 family homes, including affordable houses.
Phase one included a residential building in the former clock tower, new housing, a Morrisons and care home.
