Stockport office scheme set for approval

Plans to reconfigure Pepper House at Bramhall Moor Industrial Park, adding 36 self-contained office units and creating almost 60,000 sq ft of commercial space, have been recommended for approval.

Under the plans, the applicant, Pepper Works Too, wants to build a 3,260 sq ft business hub at the entrance of the site featuring a café and meeting rooms. 

In addition, the existing car park at the five-acre site would be redeveloped to bring forward 55,000 sq ft of office space across the 36 new-build units, which would be spread over five individual blocks. 

Of these units, 34 would span 1,450 sq ft and there would be two larger 3,000 sq ft units.  

The existing Pepper House building would be reconfigured to offer a further 14 self-contained units.

The proposals will be considered under Stockport Council’s statutory powers, which permit the chief executive or the appropriate corporate director to make decisions during lockdown that would ordinarily be reserved for committee meetings.

The project has been designed by Manchester-based John Davidson Architects and the planner is Broadgrove Planning and Development, based in Cheadle Hulme. DEP Landscape Architecture is also on the project team.

This scheme looks really exciting – a breath of fresh air and just what the market could be looking for as we enter the ‘new normal’.
