Plans are in for the redevelopment of the 4.5-acre former St Augustine’s School site in Oldham, into 54 family homes.
The vacant plot is located at the junction of Grange Avenue and Chamber Road, around one mile south of Oldham town centre.
The plans outlined to Oldham Council will see Linden Homes North West, Galliford Try’s residential arm, deliver a mixture of three- and four-bedroom detached and semi-detached homes.
Galliford Try Partnerships is currently building 500 new homes under the Linden Homes brand for sale and rent in Brunswick, Manchester, as part of a £100m PFI regeneration programme.
Darren Leary, development director of Galliford Try Partnerships, said: “This scheme is a positive reflection of the continued growth Galliford Try Partnerships and Linden Homes are currently experiencing across the North West.
“We have worked in partnership with Oldham Council to develop plans to deliver high quality, traditional family homes that complement the existing neighbourhood. The scheme will increase the range of houses available in this sought after area and will help deliver the Council’s aspirations for new housing in the borough.”
