About this property

  • The property is the former site of the Danebridge Mill, located to the south of the River Dane within the town centre. The site is V-shaped with road frontages to Rood Hill and Mill Street, although primary vehicular access is off Mill Street. The dominant frontage is to the River Dane.

    The site extends to 0.59 acres (0.24 hectares) and slopes down towards the river.


    The Vendor has secured full planning consent for redevelopment of the site to deliver 44 apartments within a part 4, part 5 storey building. The scheme, which maximises the river frontage, comprises 33 x one bedroom units and 11 x two bedroom units with 50 parking spaces.

    The scheme was granted full planning consent in October 2019 following signing of the S106 agreement stipulating that 13 x affordable units are to be delivered in the scheme plus a S106 payment of £96,915 payable to Cheshire East Council.

    The planning application can be accessed through the Cheshire East planning portal using reference: 18/6374C.

The Danebridge Mill site occupies an enviable waterside location in this popular town and holds planning consent to deliver 44 residential apartments.

Local information

  • The town of Congleton is located in Cheshire, some 20 miles south of Manchester and 10 miles north of Stoke-on-Trent. It is a well-established town in the Cheshire East borough and benefits from the key amenities one would expect of a town of this nature – namely several supermarkets and a range of leisure and retail amenities.
  • The town has established itself as a strong commuter location as a result of its access to the A34 connecting directly into Manchester city centre, meanwhile Congleton train station (located just outside the town) offers regular services into Manchester to the north, and Stoke-on-Trent to the south. Furthermore, the M6 motorway can be accessed through Arclid, approximately 5 miles to the west of the town.
