An amendment has been made to a previously accepted planning application for a series of new apartments to be erected on the site on Vernon Street in Ashton-Under-Lyne.
Currently the site sits as a cleared brownfield area, predominantly surrounded by two-storey
terraced and semi-detached houses, with a nursery and primary
school to the north west.
That could all change however, with the development of 24 new two bedroom apartments split across three storeys.
The development takes inspiration from Ashton’s time in the heart of the industrial revolution, with the inclusion of the red brick visual taking cues from historic structures such as Cavendish and Ryecroft Mill, whilst the roofline mimics the rows of factory roofs as depicted in one of artist Lowry’s works.
Seven different types of apartment will span the three storeys, offering alterations in layouts, as well as some including open plan living spaces and en-suite bathrooms.
The proposed apartment layouts can be viewed below, and can be enlarged by clicking the respective image:
A 1.8m high timber close board fence will surround the site to screen rear boundaries of the adjacent properties, whilst a planted hedgerow will cover and protect the retaining screen walls.
The target date for the decision behind the development is 9 August 2018, with consultations expected to end next month.
