Housing proposal for Mersey green belt
Britannia Group and Grasscroft Properties have submitted a planning application to Manchester City Council for the former Tatton Arms pub in Northenden to become flats and mews houses.
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.
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.
