Eccleston lodges plans for 130 Hyde homes 

The 12-acre former ABC Waxworks site off Clarendon Road could be redeveloped under proposals put forward by the housebuilder. 

Warrington-based Eccleston Homes has submitted plans for 130 two- and three-bedroom houses to Tameside Council. 

The site has been derelict since around 2014 and has been partially cleared of buildings and other associated infrastructure. 

“The redevelopment…will deliver a significant range of benefits and bring forward a site which holds a strategically important location within Hyde, but has contributed little to the local area for several years,” according to a planning statement by consultancy Connollys. 

The application site is currently afforded protection for future employment uses under Tameside’s unitary development plan, adopted in 2004. 

However, the emerging Places for Everyone joint plan “sets out an expectation that the subject site will deliver housing in the future”, according to Connollys. 

The scheme has a gross development value of £46m, according to a viability assessment.

Should be able to fit at least double the number of homes on that site. Assume a lot of land is wasted for roads and car parking as is typical with these sorts of schemes. Tameside need to press the developer to deliver more homes to start to bite into GM’s housing shortage.

Be stupid to let this happen the road structure around that entrance is shocking. It often take 20 mins to get down Clarendon road in a morning.
