UK Apartment block in Tameside could be replaced with affordable homes last minute news
PremierLeague-News.Com- The development would also see an area of open space in Denton built on
PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! Plans to knock down an apartment block and build affordable homes are back on the table after concerns over loss of open space prompted changes by the developer. Proposals have been submitted to Tameside council to demolish a block of six flats on Heanor Avenue in Denton. Irwell Valley Homes aims to replace the building, and an area of open space around it with eight ‘affordable family dwellings’. These proposed houses would be a mix of two and three bedroom, and split between semi-detached properties and a terrace of four dwellings. The application is part of the housing provider’s wider regeneration of the Haughton Green estate, with the aim to introduce more affordable and larger family homes in the area to meet demand. A previous application for 13 homes on the site had been submitted last October but was withdrawn in January following concerns from consultees about overdevelopment and the impact on a ‘high value’ group of trees. There had also been 17 objections from members of the public to those plans.

. “The revised application ensures that a more significant area of open space is returned as part of the green infrastructure of Haughton Green along with many of the mature trees within it,” the design and access report states. Under the plans there would be two parking spaces for the three bedroom homes, with one for each two-bedroom property.

The Heanor Avenue site is considered to be ‘amenity open space’, but the developer argues that overall there is ‘sufficient open space provision’ in Denton. “Therefore, the re-development of this site for residential development will not result in a significant impact on the quality or quantity of open space in the area,” a report states. “This development will bring this previously developed site back into a positive sustainable use, creating much needed affordable homes to meet local housing needs for family housing.” A decision on the plans is estimated to be made after the end of June.
