Land and Communities

Rossfield Park, Ellesmere Port

Plans: A new sustainable and popular community is being created at Rossfield Park which has overall plans for over 1,040 new homes and with 570 new homes and local facilities already delivered to date by Persimmon; Wainhomes; Countryside Properties; and Anwyl Homes. The scheme is having a transformational effect, being close to the Town Centre but also benefits from excellent transport links and the retention and improvement of mature landscaped areas. 

Rossfield Park is one of a number of key regeneration and investment schemes in Ellesmere Port which is further raising the profile and perception of the Town. The scheme also has strong links to Peel’s adjacent Pioneer Business Park / Pioneer Point, where c. 1m square feet of new employment development has been delivered by partners.  The construction of the final phases of Pioneer site has recently started and Northstone are bringing forward the final phase of this development.

Key Stats:

  • 570 homes built to date with a further 480 in the pipeline.
