The housebuilder will bring forward 137 homes in Chadderton on one of six residential plots on the wider Foxdenton strategic site.
Supported by planner Avison Young and working with FO Developments, the housebuilder is proposing to build 137 homes on Zone R1 of the wider Foxdenton site, which covers more than 121 acres.
Countryside’s plans cover a 9.6-acre site and will be a mix of affordable homes and houses for open market sale; the affordable houses will be split between 10 four-beds, 56 three-beds, and 16 two-beds to be brought forward by housing association Great Places.
The remaining 55 will be delivered by Countryside for private sale; all the homes will be accessed via the site’s central spine road. Oldham Council is set to sign off a reserved matters application for Countryside’s proposals next week, which will allow construction to begin.
The wider site has outline consent for 700,000 sq ft of warehouse, manufacturing and offices, up to 500 new homes and 20 acres of public space. This was granted in 2014; late last year, Oldham Council and developer Foxdenton secured £12.5m from the North West Evergreen Fund to help deliver the link road and infrastructure to unlock the site.
Fellow housebuilder Redrow is already on site to deliver the first phase of housing, including 100 properties.
