The Taylor Wimpey development enters its final phase after gaining approval for a reserved matters application to build houses at Stott Lane.
The houses are part of the larger Hollin Lane East scheme, which earned outline planning permission in October 2016 for up to 205 homes. The first phase saw 103 of those houses come up between Hollin Lane and Stott Lane. The Rochdale Council approved that portion of the scheme in April 2017.
This second and final phase is focused on a nearly 12-acre plot on the eastern side of Stott Lane, just north of St Anne’s Church of England Academy. Currently, the site consists of fields that are used for grazing. However, Taylor Wimpey aims to transform it into a housing development of three- and four-bedroom homes. The mostly brick houses will range from 753 ft to 1460 sq ft. The maximum height for the buildings is 2.5 storeys, but most homes will be just two storeys.
Houses will have a mix of parking availability including driveways, up front parking bays and integral and detached garages.
Gallagher Technical and Design LTD are the architects for the project, with TPM Landscape on ecology and arboriculture. Turley Associates handled planning. Others involved include Ironside Farrar and iTransport.
