Redsands

  • Former Children’s Centre in Willaston, near Nantwich
  • Vacant since 2009 and now largely derelict
  • Marketed by Colliers International in 2016
  • Sold to Richmond Care Villages, a subsidiary of BUPA
  • Site to be developed as a centre of excellence for dementia care

Background

 

Redsands Children’s Centre closed in 2009 and was identified for disposal by Cheshire East Council. In 2016, the property was marketed for sale by Engine of the North through Colliers International. In July 2017, contracts were exchanged with Richmond Care Villages to sell the site, subject to planning.

 

A planning application for the new care facility has been submitted to Cheshire East Council. Under the plans, the existing green open space to the front of the property will be retained and enhanced.  Cheshire East would retain ownership of the land to the east of the former centre, which includes a football pitch. The existing public footpath which runs along the eastern boundary of the site will be maintained.

 

What are the benefits of the proposals?

 

  • The sale will enable the empty site to be brought back into economic use
  • The site would be developed into a high-quality care home, specialising in dementia care
  • The new facility will create 80 new jobs recruited locally
  • The site will be transformed into a centre of excellence for dementia care and will operate as a satellite facility to Richmond’s existing care village in Nantwich
  • The existing green space will be retained and enhanced
