SIX new homes could be built on a piece of land overlooking the River Weaver opposite Barons Quay.

A planning application for six detached homes in Oldhams Hill – off Winnington Hill – has been lodged with Cheshire West and Chester Council.

The landowner says the land – directly across the river from the Odeon – is currently used for car parking, and that the scaling and design of the homes would be in keeping with the surrounding area.

The homes would each be of four bedrooms, two-storeys, and have three parking spaces.
