Novo Property Group has submitted a planning application for 15 affordable homes in the centre of Altrincham, slightly tweaking the design from an earlier iteration revealed last year.
The 15 two-bedroom shared ownership apartments will be built on behalf of Southway Housing Trust, on a site near to the Regent Road car park.
Designed by Project 3 Architects, the three-storey brick-clad block would replace two largely vacant buildings currently on the New Street plot.

Part of the site, Handsome House, was formerly home to Myersons Solicitors but is now vacant, while Chapel House is owned by Novo but is used by Art with a Heart as a free exhibitions space.
The scheme was revealed by Novo at a public consultation event last November, and at the time was “broadly well received”. However following pre-application conversations with Trafford Council the project has been reduced slightly in height and mass, to better fit in with the surrounding street.
A start on site is hoped for next year. Nexus Planning advised on the application.
