A £30m apartment scheme on the site of Stockport’s former Greenhale House has been given the go-ahead by the planning committee.
Plans feature 78 one-beds, 84 two-beds, and two three-bed apartments in a 13-storey block along with a commercial unit at ground floor; thought to be used by a coffee shop. Nine of the apartments are to be classified as affordable in line with Stockport Council’s planning policy.
Named The Place, the proposals will use an off-white cladding to the lower levels and a contrasting metal cladding on the upper floors. There will also be a 4,300 sq ft podium which will be landscaped and set aside for residents’ use, along with undercroft parking.
There had previously been proposed a 22-storey tower on the site but this was reduced following criticism on the building’s scale from Stockport Council’s planning officers.
The scheme was approved by the council’s planning committee subject to a Section 106 agreement. CPUK has been picked to build the scheme and is set to start on site next April.
