Taylor Wimpey in for planning on brownfield Audenshaw site

HOW Planning has submitted a full planning application on behalf of Taylor Wimpey for 169 homes at the former Mono Pumps site in Audenshaw, Tameside.

Isla Longmuir, senior planner at HOW Planning, said: “Mono Pumps moved to new premises some time ago, leaving this site with a lot of potential for redevelopment. We are hoping for a positive outcome, which would allow Taylor Wimpey to make a start with its transformation as soon as possible.”

Most of the buildings at the 12-acre former industrial complex, close to Guide Bridge station on Martin Street to the east of Audenshaw town centre, have now been demolished.

The application includes 151 three- or four-bedroom houses, along with 18 apartments. Materials issued to local residents and businesses by Taylor Wimpey ahead of the application say that the project could bring in approximately £177,000 of council tax revenue a year to the local authority, on top of a New Homes Bonus of approximately £1m.

Your Comments

Volume house builders struggle to shrug off claims of poor quality design with yet another example of cut de sac fed noddy boxes, no coordinated green or amenity spaces and a general lack of ambition. Please consider something more progressive, it doesn’t have to cost more to construct a proper neighbourhood but can offer a much better place to live.
