The site of a former Victorian brick villa in Hyde could be transformed into new apartments and homes.
The proposed development seeks full planning permission for 14 dwellings with associated parking and vehicular access linking the site to Mottram Road, Hyde, on a site between 132a and 134 Mottram Road.
The properties would consist of six three-bedroom townhouses, six two-bedroom apartments; and two one bedroom apartments.
The site covers approximately 0.156 hectares of now vacant land, having formerly been used for residential purposes. The site historically was occupied by a large Victorian brick villa which was located on the northern area of the site, fronting Mottram Road.
The area was largely covered by hardstanding as a result of the former building, albeit overtime self-seeded scrub is now evident across the site. This scrub is dense at the site boundaries and more scattered within. There are also a number of mature trees along the western and southern boundaries of the site.
Back in 2006 planning was granted for the building of residential properties, including apartments and houses, but this has now lapsed.
Tameside Council planners are considering the proposals.
