Chester business park could become 30-home residential development

Mollington Grange Business Park may be converted into a housing development, with mews houses available to buy.

An application for the Chester business park conversion has been submitted by Christopher Wade, who is hopeful that Cheshire West and Chester Council will grant a permitted development order that would enable a 30-home development to stand in place of the business park.

A PDO enables certain changes of use and building works to go into effect without the need for a planning application.

Mollington is the home of companies such as Bianca Trading wine merchants, John Woods Motorcare, Bespoke Brides, and Mococo jewellery.

William Wild and Son owns the business park’s freehold. Bell Developments are leaseholders on a section of the space where the park stands. Both firms operate from the site.

Tenants were informed of the plans earlier in 2017, but their deadline for exiting the business park will be dictated by their tenancy agreements.

Bell Developments director Mike Bell, who is in charge of the project, previously told The Chester Chronicle:

“We do intend to convert the offices into residential. The units will be two and three bed mews houses which will be sold on the open market. We see it as a semi-rural high quality development.”

Bell said that it wasn’t necessary to seek planning consent as there would no change made to the exteriors, and that permitted development would be sufficient.

Builders in Chester are certainly up to the task and it will be another achievement that they can be proud of, after the recent completion of the Storyhouse development.
