Northwich Meadows, Northwich

A new urban meadow is being created within the Dane Valley Area of Special Landscape Value. Northwich Meadows forms part of a comprehensive network of greenspaces, linking to the existing Leftwich Meadows and semi-natural open space at Rudheath, with additional potential for a bridge link across the River Dane.

Benefits to the community will be considerable, improving access to the countryside and providing open space, low key visitor facilities, riverside walks and ecological areas. A new neighbourhood of around 250 dwellings will be created beyond the floodplain in conjunction with Northwich Meadows. Residential development has been sensitively designed to meet local demand and affordability requirements. Creation of a village character has been informed by townscape analysis of areas of local heritage value to ensure a sense of place and local distinctiveness throughout the scheme.
