Maple Grove, Onward victorious in Tameside

Hattersley is set to get an Aldi – and a Costa – thanks to plans approved by the local authority’s planning panel on Wednesday morning.

Maple Grove Developments and Onward Homes partnered together on the 57,000 sq ft project which includes 32,000 sq ft of employment space spread across eight trade counter units, in addition to the grocery store and coffee shop. Knight Frank is the sole agent for the workspaces.

Their plans centre on 5.5 acres adjacent to Stockport Road and Ashworth Lane. The site in question has been vacant for 14 years.

Andrew Dewhurst, development director at Maple Grove, said: “We have worked closely with Onward Homes and Tameside Council to create a site which will benefit the people of Tameside and with planning now secured, we look forward to starting on site in late summer.”

This project is just the latest phase of Onward’s 20-year regeneration of Hattersley and Mottram. The housing association is currently working on building more than 160 homes in central Hattersley.

Regarding the planning approval, Sandy Livingstone, executive director of Onward Homes, said: “We are pleased with Tameside Council’s decision and look forward to seeing these new amenities and opportunities delivered at the heart of our Hattersley neighbourhood over the coming years.

“Maple Grove’s proposals will breathe new life into this long-dormant site and we expect the new range of facilities to be welcomed by the local community.”

Tameside Council’s decision was in line with officer recommendation.

The Harris Partnership is the architect behind the successful application, with Avison Young leading on the planning front. Also on the project team: Brady Chartered Surveyors, ICIS Design, Crookes Walker Consulting, Noise Solutions, Tyler Grange, Hilson Moran, Vector Design Concepts, E3P, Abacaus, Eddisons, and Element Sustainability.
