The site of a former nursing home in Disley could be converted into apartments.

Members of Cheshire East Council’s northern planning committee approved the application at a meeting in Macclesfield last Wednesday.

Plans for the land at Woodend, formerly a 20-bed residential home which has since been demolished, were submitted by Village Heritage, of Wilmslow.

The site is located within a predominantly residential area and access is proposed via Homestead Road, an unadopted highway.

The redevelopment involves the erection of 11 two-bed units arranged over two floors with additional penthouses within the roof space plus a lower ground floor garden apartment, with associated access and parking.

The proposal is identical to one previously approved in 2010. Planning officers recommended members approve the application.

Councillors voted in favour of the plans, on the condition that the applicant contribute £38,500 towards the existing Arnold Rhodes park which includes children’s play, amenity open space and sports facilities.
