Nexus Planning, working with architect Broadway Malyan, has submitted an application for the conversion of the 40,000 sq ft Britannia Mill in Mossley into apartments.
The proposal on behalf of site owner English Braids is for a mixed-use development, made up of 62 two- and three-bedroom apartments and 8,000 sq ft of high street retail units. The site is close to Mossley train station.
Tameside Council is due to consider the application in March 2016.
Peter Tooher, director at Nexus Planning, said: “The Britannia Mill site is a genuinely exciting opportunity to deliver a high quality, mixed used residential and retail scheme which delivers on English Braids’ vision for the site. It is heartening to see the ongoing regeneration of Mossley, which highlights the potential of some of the smaller towns in Greater Manchester, and this development can make a significant contribution to its future.”
