A series of new apartments are tipped for Hyde town centre following the approval of a planning application.
Following on from my post last week regarding the conversion of office space in Woodhead House to new apartments, another set of residential units is set to make its way to Hyde town centre.
Occupying the space of the current unit known as The Showroom, six new residential units have been granted planning permission. The property is currently a retail unit used as a costume shop and previously a car showroom.
Submitted by Rob Baines Architecture, the design and access statement comments the new development would lend itself as new apartments, with an emphasis on space for disabled access and movement.
Space within the development’s communal areas and hallways appear to take full disabled access and movement into consideration, with door widths and turning circles to suit. The stairs to the first floor apartments are tipped to be suitable for ambulant disabled access, with the risers no greater than 170mm.
Below are images from the application which show how the new units could look internally and externally (click to enlarge):
The proposal will feature two parking spaces for the development, and 12 cycle spaces.
The flats themselves comprise of an open plan living/dining room, storage cupboard, bathroom and one bedroom, as seen below:
The retail unit the new development is set to replace is currently one storey tall, whilst the new residential units will span across two floors. This will reduced the building’s footprint, whilst ensuring the style is consistent with nearby structures including the nearby new build of Hatton Court.
