A joint venture between Seddon Homes and PH Property Holdings expects to start on work on a housing scheme at the former Hulme Hall Grammar School by the end of spring.
The JV secured planning permission for 37 homes on the four-acre site in Cheadle Hulme in February, and plans to “progress quickly” on the development, according to James Heyworth, land director at PH Property Holdings.
Work on site will start with the demolition of the existing school. Once this is complete, work to build the 24 homes and 13 apartments will commence.
Hulme Hall Grammar School relocated to the former Hillcrest Grammar School site in 2017.
Charlotte Fowler, associate at P4 Planning, said: “This site has been vacant for some time and some of the old school buildings have been a focus for anti-social behaviour, so it is great to achieve such a quick decision and know that work can now commence to transform it into a vibrant new community.”
The professional team includes P4 Planning, Barnes Walker Landscape Architects, SK Transport Planning, Orion Heritage, Cheshire Woodlands and Dave Gowen Design.
