Royal London’s proposal to expand its Wilmslow campus has been waved through by the government.

In July 2016, Cheshire East Council approved an outline application by the Royal London Mutual Insurance Society and Property Alliance Group for a new office development to the east of its existing site and south of the town centre subject to referral to communities secretary Sajid Javid.
