Plans have been put forward to redevelop the former Hulme Hall Grammar School in Cheadle Hulme into 37 homes.
Joint applicants Seddon Developments and PH Property Holdings are behind the scheme, which will see a mix of housing and apartments built on the four-acre brownfield site, left vacant when the school relocated to Davenport in July 2017.
The developers will build a mix of 16 two and three-bedroom apartments along with 21 houses ranging between two and five bedrooms in size.
Working with planner P4, public consultation has already taken place, suggesting strong local support for the plans.
Charlotte Fowler, Associate at P4 Planning: “The Hulme Hall Grammar School site is a fantastic location, sitting within a predominantly residential area which will benefit from the new homes and transformation provided by this scheme.
“We have been particularly keen to get this application submitted as permission is required to demolish the old school buildings which lie in a conservation area and have recently become a focus for anti-social behaviour. We are therefore seeking approval so the demolition and redevelopment of the site can commence as soon as possible.”
James Heyworth, land director at PH Property Holdings said: “We are pleased to have lodged the application which is an important milestone in taking forward our plans for this challenging brownfield site.
“The design has been heavily influenced by the existing landscape features and the sensitivity surrounding development within a conservation area. We are grateful for the community support received and look forward to delivering a range of quality homes to help meet Stockport’s pressing need.”
Along with P4 Planning, the professional team includes Barnes Walker Landscape Architects; SK Transport Planning; Orion Heritage; Cheshire Woodlands; and Dave Gowen Design.
