Apartment Plans for Derelict Cheadle Heath Church

SM55-02-church

A derelict church in Cheadle Heath is being turned into luxury apartments thanks to £1m investment by its new owner.
Work is under way at St Augustine’s Church in Cheadle Heath, Stockport , after investment company The Blackmore Group bought the 19th century building through its new Blackmore Bond.
The church has planning permission for nine two-bedroomed flats across two floors.
The first phase of work involves a clean-up and restoration of the building, which fell into disrepair and was vandalised after it closed in 2007.
Religious leaders decided the church building was no longer viable as it could not be insured because of problems with the electrics that were too expensive to fix.
