A Reserved Matters application is being prepared for a new residential development on the site of Hyde Clarendon Sixth Form College.
Tameside Council granted Outline Planning Permission for the demolition of the existing buildings on the site, which have been derelict for over three years. The Outline Planning Permission, which was granted in March 2017, will allow the redevelopment to provide up to 96 new homes.
Taylor Wimpey, the residential developer behind the project, are now preparing to submit the application which will seek approval of the detailed matters and design proposals of the development.
The information, containing full layout details, scale, appearance, landscaping and materials used will be formally submitted to Tameside Council, who will subsequently advise local residents on how to view the application.
The current proposed development, which consists of approximately 79 residential homes, will provide up to 72 indirect jobs during the construction. The properties incorporate a series of three and four bedroom homes, including mews, semi-detached and detached properties.
There will be numerous vehicular access points branching off the neighbouring Clarendon Road which runs parallel to the current site.
Construction work would be anticipated to begin next Summer, with the first property completed the same year.
The proposals also include financial contributions towards improvements on the nearby football pitches on Garden Street and Victoria Street, as well as further financial contributions to support further education and resources within the area.
The development would benefit from the excellent transport links via the nearby M67 motorway to connect with the M60. Newton-For-Hyde train station is also situated a few minutes walk away from the development, whilst access to Hyde town centre can be found situated at the bottom of Clarendon Road.
Local residents are urged to leave any feedback for the project in this feedback form, which can then be returned to the developers.
