Real Estate submits Bowdon housing plans

Hardy Mill Properties and Real Estate Investment Partnerships have submitted a planning application to return the Transform Clinic on the corner of Green Walk and The Firs in Bowdon to residential use in a scheme designed by Ollier Smurthwaite Architects.

The site was acquired from the operator of the clinic for an undisclosed sum. The gross development value is forecast at £9m. Twelve residential units are planned in a mix of refurbished and new-build space. Stephen Slater, director of Real Estate Investments, said he wanted to 'return the building back to its former glory and to add value to what is already a very exclusive residential avenue.'

Slater added that the firm was planning a series of developments in the local area.

Matt Ollier of Ollier Smurthwaite architects said: "We are excited to be working on a scheme in one of the best locations in the North of England. A light touch approach will be taken with the existing house retaining all the existing character and detail. New living accommodation is provided at the rear around a new formally landscaped courtyard which draws inspiration from the Victorian glasshouses which once occupied the site."
