Welsh housing developers Castle Green Homes will meet with Congleton residents to discuss plans for over 300 new homes on Giantswood Lane.
The meeting will take place at Hulme Walfield Parish Church on Monday June 27, with proceedings kicking-off at 7:30pm.
The site spans 56 acres, and hopes to create three points of access from Viking Way.
Almost 400 homes are planned, with 21% of the new-builds being affordable housing, as reported on by Congleton Nub News earlier this month.
Hulme Walfield and Somerford Booths Parish Council Cllr Vic Brown announced the meeting.
"This meeting has been set up to give members of the public in the vicinity of Giantswood Lane an opportunity to hear a presentation given by Castle Green (the developers) and their planning advisors," said Vic.
"This is an important major development of interest to residents in the vicinity of Giantswood Lane, Daisy Bank and Lower Heath."
According to the planning application, "The demolition of certain existing buildings and the erection of residential dwellings (Use Class C3) with access, car parking, landscaping, public open space and associated infrastructure."
A Supporting Statement document discloses: ""The delivery of the 398 homes will play an important roel in supporting the proposed local centre."
The deadline for comments is July 14.
A decision date is earmarked for September 12.
The proposed site can be found on Mount Pleasant Farm, Giantswood Lane, Hulme Walfield, CW12 2JJ.
