PJ Livesey announces plans for Didsbury homes
PJ Livesey is set to redevelop a 4.3-acre plot on Wilmslow Road in Didsbury into 85 homes, converting listed buildings on the site which are currently used as offices.
The developer is hosting a public consultation tomorrow, which will show its plans for the retention and conversion of The Cedars and The Lodge, both grade two-listed properties, and a coach house, to create 24 flats, together with the retention of a grade two-listed wall and gate piers at the entrance to the site.
Parklands, a modern office building, would be retained and converted to residential to provide 39 apartments. A later extension to The Cedars and an office building, Aspen House, would be demolished to make way for 22 houses.
GVA is preparing a detailed planning application on behalf of PJ Livesey.
PJ Livesey director James Woodmansee said: “This is a mature site containing a mix of properties in a residential area. The proposals would re-purpose four existing buildings and create a total of 85 high-quality homes.
“We are consulting with local residents and the wider community before submitting a scheme for planning.’
PJ Livesey is also on site redeveloping the former Manchester Metropolitan University campus in Didsbury into homes, designed by Calderpeel.
A public consultation event is being held on Wednesday 7 February at Didsbury Cricket Club between 3pm-8pm.
