A six-home scheme designed by Ollier Smurthwaite on Urmston’s Station Road has been granted planning consent.
The application, put together by Paul Butler Associates, was recommended for approval by officers at Trafford Council’s latest planning committee.
The developer for the project is Urmston Developments, with the scheme set to be built on land to the rear of the old police station and Gladstone Buildings on Station Road.
The half-acre plot is currently used as car parking for locals and was formerly a bowling green. The development includes the removal of 44 car parking spaces to make way for the six three-bedroom houses, but replacement car parking will be provided as part of the terms of the planning consent.
Objections were raised from locals regarding the scheme’s impact on parking, increase of traffic, with some comments stating the plot would be overdeveloped with the houses being “too big.”
