Taylor Wimpey readies 200-home Littleborough scheme 

The housebuilder wants to deliver houses on a 35-acre swathe of land off Smithy Bridge Road that is allocated for redevelopment in the emerging Places for Everyone spatial plan. 

Taylor Wimpey has launched a consultation on its plans to build 199 houses south-west of the Rochdale town of Littleborough. 

The scheme would “contribute to Rochdale Council’s target of building around 500 homes every year to meet local demand”, the developer said. 

As well as the homes, which would cost £36.7m to build, the project would feature the creation of a link road connecting Smithy Bridge Road with Albert Royds Street to ease congestion on the A58. 

Pegasus Planning is advising Taylor Wimpey on urban design and Turley is the planning consultant for the scheme.

A planning application is due to be submitted to Rochdale Council this summer. 

Other major Rochdale sites allocated for redevelopment in the Places for Everyone plan include: 

  • Stakehill – 1,680 homes and around 375,000 sq ft of employment space close to the Stakehill roundabout 
  • The Northern Gateway – 1,200 homes and 3.5m sq ft of employment space on land between junctions 18 and 19 of the M62 
  • Trows Farm, Castleton Around 550 homes and a new primary school on land south of Crown Business Park.

Who is this spirit who dictates that valuable green land should be decimated for for so called redevelopment? Who tells all the wildlife they are no longer wanted & should be exterminated in the laughable name of progress!! Going to Hell in a hand cart for sure…
