GREATER MANCHESTER: Planning applications

These are all the major planning applications lodged with councils in Greater Manchester this week.

Dozens of new homes are planned for Stockport and Salford at locations dubbed as ‘gateways’ to the heart of each town centre.

Just under 90 new affordable homes are planned for Pendleton House off the A6 Broad Street – which offers a route to both Salford Crescent and Salford Central train stations. Over in Stockport  plans for a 16-storey tower block could create up to 76 new homes for the area.

For this to be built the old George pub on the corner of Wellington Road North would have to be demolished.

A controversial electricity power plant is making waves in the Westhoughton community in Bolton and the Wetherspoons in Shaw could soon see an outdoor transformation following applications submitted to council this week.

Here is a breakdown of each borough’s submitted planning applications this week

Bolton

Electricity storage plant plans for football pitches kicks up a stink

Plans to build an electricity storage plant on former football pitches now used by walkers and horse riders have received almost 200 objections.

The battery energy storage system (BESS) would be built on open land known locally as Slack Lane field in Westhoughton. FPC (Electric Land) Ltd wishes to build the plant, to store excess electricity generated, predominantly from renewable energy, in battery containers on the site.

Bury

HMO plans resurface despite being rejected once before

A two storey mid-terrace house is the subject of plans to create an eight-bed shared home.

The house of multiple occupation would be on Walmersley Road, Bury, close to Clarence Park. The application is a resubmission of previously refused plans with the applicant saying the scheme has been amended.

The plan includes a front and rear dormer extension and car and cycle parking provision.

Manchester 

No new significant planning applications have been submitted to Manchester Council this week. 

The planning applications submitted relate to smaller scale plans such as housing extensions and modifications to already approved plans.

Oldham

Changes to outdoor seating for Shaw Wetherspoons

An amendment to a plan by the Shay Wake Wetherspoons in Shaw has been submitted.

This comes after the pub sought to extend its outdoor seating space using a vacant plot on Beal Lane. The new plans feature a beer-garden style seating area with room for 120 customers.  

Rochdale

Plans for huge new industrial space emerge

Another huge new complex of industrial warehouses could be coming to the Kingsway Business Park in Rochdale soon.

Plans for the site just off Junction 21 of the M62 include four employment buildings consisting of a combined internal floorspace of 12,807m² for flexible use. On what is called ‘Plot L’ there is already outline permission for the development, and this latest bid would see Wilson Bowden Developments Ltd granted permission to start building work.

Salford

Dozens of affordable homes planned for ‘gateway’ to Greater Manchester neighbourhood

Plans have been submitted to build 88 new affordable apartments in Salford at the ‘gateway’ to the city. 

The scheme, at Pendleton House on Broughton Road, could see a mix of one, and two-bedroom apartments built, including three-person wheelchair accessible homes. If approved, all the new homes will be set to be affordable and rented out at social property levels. 

The location is next to the A6 Broad Street, offering a direct route to Salford Crescent and Salford Central train stations.
