HOW Planning has secured planning approval on behalf of Taylor Wimpey for 178 homes in Tameside.
Plans include a variety of two-, three- and four-bedroom houses, along with 18 apartments.
The 11.8-acre site is located on the former Mono Pumps site on Martin Street, close to Guide Bridge Train Station.
Isla Longmuir, senior planner at HOW Planning, said: “The proposals reflected the needs of the local community and the scheme will have a positive effect on Audenshaw and the wider area. It will contribute significantly to the Tameside housing supply and will enhance what is already predominantly a residential area.”
