The Homes and Communities Agency has applied for Planning Consent for the former Parker Hannifin site in Cannock to be used for housing development.
The site, in Walkmill Lane has been left unused since Parker Hannifin moved in 2000. With the support of property consultants, Cushman & Wakefield, plans have been submitted to Cannock Chase District Council for a 116 home development including 20% affordable housing, infrastructure and public open spaces.
Karl Tupling, the HCA’s Midlands general manager, said: “The HCA is really pleased to be helping bring this local site back into use to provide 116 new homes and help local people in Cannock to have access to a home of their own.”
Claire Biddle, of Cushman & Wakefield’s Planning and Development team, added: “The proposals will visually and physically improve this brownfield site, providing green space and an attractive frontage along Walkmill Lane. The wider area is becoming more residential in character and the proposed mixture of housing and apartments will contribute to this growing neighbourhood.”
