Chelford to benefit from Jones Homes’ £270,000 cash injection

Community groups and schools across Chelford will benefit from a cash injection of more than £270,000 from Jones Homes.

Construction work is now in the final stages at the development of 94 homes known as Cricketers Green, the former Eddie Stobart haulage depot off Knutsford Road.

Jones Homes is investing the funds as part of its planning agreement.

A community pot of £75,000 will be allocated to local groups. This could include local community centres, youth clubs and possibly creating new community facilities.

A further £195,000 has been allocated as an investment in education at local schools. A further contribution to improve off-site open spaces could benefit sports facilities in Chelford.

Gemma Pownall, Sales Director for Jones Homes North West, said:

“Cricketers Green is a fantastic example of how brownfield sites can be transformed to help meet the needs of local people.

“The development has been extremely successful and is becoming an attractive and popular place to live, with a direct train service to Manchester.

“Jones Homes is a local company and we always work to embed our new homes firmly within the existing community.

“In the case of Cricketers Green, we are pleased that our planning contributions are being invested in good causes in the village and supporting education, so the whole community will experience some benefit.”

Jones Homes is building three to five-bedroom homes at Cricketers Green and the last few homes are now available for sale.

A stunning new show home, five-bedroom detached The Latchford II, is open daily. Within the development there will be a large open space which the whole village will be able to use. It will have a play area for children and a free-play space, with footpaths and seats also provided.
