Moss Hey Mulbury
The site was previously occupied by P&D Northern Steel

Mulbury to progress long-awaited Oldham housing

The developer has submitted plans for 65 homes on a five-acre plot off Moss Hey Street in Shaw, almost seven years after outline planning permission was granted.

The former landowner P&D Northern Steels, which also occupied the site, was granted a seven-year implementation period, rather than the usual three, to give the business time to locate to a new premises.

P&D has now relocated to a site at Woodstock Distribution Centre in Royton, and Mulbury has since acquired the land in order to bring the project forward.

The development will combine a mix of two-, three- and four-bedroom detached and semi-detached homes.

Of the 65 homes, 44 will be made available on an affordable basis.

PWA Planning is acting as the planner for the project, GTD is the architect and Urban Green is the landscape architect.

Although I am in favour of the development, I am very concerned about the amount of traffic it will incur on Moss Hey Street and Wild Street. Especially access for emergency vehicles. My daughter lives in the end house on Wild St, and at busy times such as Christmas, the traffic is at a standstill. My car was hit by someone exiting Asda as I was coming from my daughter’s. And I have had quite a few near misses with people pulling out of Asda thinking I am turning in. So what’s it going to be like with 65 pluss cars ?
