The Averill Group has put in plans to develop on part of the former Halls factory complex in Radcliffe, creating a residential scheme in partnership with Jigsaw Housing Group.
Since closing in 2004, the 24-acre former factory site has already been partly redeveloped for housing.
The plans being proposed by TAG will deliver 37 homes on a 2-acre plot on Morris Street.
Manchester-based P4 Planning submitted the planning application for the project designed by Material Studio Architects. The homes will be a combination of two and three bedroom, terraced and semi-detached houses.
Luke Averill, managing director of TAG, said: “There is a growing need for new homes throughout the country with a particular demand for affordable housing. This project will provide quality affordable rentals in the town I grew up in, helping with our growth strategy to deliver a thousand affordable units over the next five years.”
Gillian Worden, associate at P4 Planning, said: “This is a scheme with huge potential and one which will help deliver new homes in a borough which is in need of new housing.
“The plans aim to revitalise what is currently a vacant, unusable site into a very attractive new development and we have worked closely with our client and Jigsaw Housing Group to ensure it will meet all expectations and ambitions for the area. We are looking forward to a positive outcome so this regeneration scheme can become a reality.”
