If approved, Tatton Arms would be converted into nine apartments and 14 homes built next door. The development, which falls on Green Belt land within Northenden’s Conservation area, includes a new riverside café and improved footpaths to link with the nearby riverside walk and footbridge over the River Mersey.

Presentation Sheet

Awais Shahid, operations director at Britannia Group, said: “Having promoted every possible use for the site over the last 10 years, a sensitive housing development is the only viable redevelopment option – with the major benefit being that we can retain and restore the Tatton Arms building.  We have been really encouraged by the positive community response to this proposal and are excited to be a step closer to bringing this site back into use.”


The project team includes OMI Architects, P4 Planning, Urban Green and Scott Hughes Design.

Not many support this. The developer has let the building rot in attempt to get his proposals through for building on green belt. So far he has been refused approval.
