The housebuilder is aiming to win consent to deliver 124 homes as part of the mixed-use Mountheath estate in Prestwich with Bury Council looking to sign off the proposals early next month.
The site secured outline consent for a mixed-use scheme featuring up to 160 homes and 32,000 sq ft of industrial space in early 2017, and Bellway is now looking to progress the residential element of the scheme.
The 13-acre site is bordered by Kersal Moor and Prestwich Golf Course to the south and west, with homes and a route into Prestwich town centre to the north.
Bellway’s reserved matters application has been in the planning process since 2018 and is now set to be decided by Bury Council.
Advised by Avison Young and architect APD, Bellway is proposing 124 predominantly two-storey homes; 18 of these will be provided for affordable tenures under a Section 106 agreement, and Bellway will also be required to put forward a £354,000 contribution for recreation.
Access would be via George Street with a secondary emergency access from Ardent Way.
Planning officers have given the project a ‘minded to approve’ recommendation when Bury’s planning committee meets next week, building on the outline consent from 2017.
The employment element of the mixed-use scheme secured reserved matters consent in February this year.
