Plans in again for Wythenshawe site

Dan Whelan

Satplan, acting on behalf of Manchester-based finance broker ECS Capital, has submitted plans for a 40-apartment scheme on a vacant site at the corner of Greenwood Road and Gladeside Road.

Planning permission for the site has been granted to different developers on numerous occasions dating back to 2007.

The latest application proposes the construction of a two-to-three-storey building which will deliver 25 one-bedroom and 15 two-bedroom apartments.

The first scheme proposed on the plot, submitted by Water Avenue, was given the green light in September 2007 and proposed a 32-apartment complex.

Three years after this application was approved the applicant was granted an extension to the consent but work never started on site.

Maxtretti was then granted approval for an identical scheme in February 2016 but never broke ground. ECS Capital acquired the site in February 2019.

The site was once occupied by the Greenwood Tree pub which was demolished in 2007.

Geoff Underhill, company solicitor and spokesperson for ECS Capital, said: “We’ve achieved a more efficient layout and developed a more contemporary façade whilst respecting the area’s predominantly red brick characteristics.

“A local housing association has advised us on their preferred mix of homes, their tenure and design characteristics so that we can provide an affordable product to local people. We’re happy that it’s an altogether better scheme now.”

Falconer Chester Hall has drawn up designs for the project. Layer is the landscape architect.

As long as it’s in line with the surrounding area, it should be ok. Nothing to big or too ugly will and should be right for the area, and well needed property around the area.

Is there going to be a car park in the flats. As if not that a busy road, and there will be 40 plus car park on the main road which would cause accidents.
