Hyde is set to get

Glossop Advertiser - - News - Char­lotte Green

ATAMESIDE town is about to get three new hous­ing es­tates. Coun­cil bosses have ap­proved plans for 160 homes in Hyde which will be spread across three new es­tates.

A plan for 79 homes on the site of the for­mer Claren­don Col­lege on Claren­don Road has been ap­proved.

Tame­side’s plan­ning com­mit­tee also gave the green light to pro­pos­als for 78 new houses less ●● than a mile away at the for­mer premises of Frank Hoyle Trans­port, on Broad­way. And ten new homes will be built on land off Slateacre Road, which had been the sub­ject of more than a decade of plan­ning dis­putes be­tween res­i­dents and de­vel­op­ers.

The to­tal num­ber of houses could have been even more, with all three ap­pli­cants re­duc­ing the num­ber of prop­er­ties in their fi­nal plans.

The Claren­don Road devel­op­ment is be­ing led by build­ing firm Tay­lor Wim­pey.

Bell­way Homes is head­ing up the new es­tate on Broad­way.

David Thomp­son, prin­ci­pal plan­ning of­fi­cer, said there were ‘de­sign rea­sons’ jus­ti­fy­ing a re­duc­tion from 96 houses for the Claren­don Road site.

He con­firmed that the fi­nan­cial con­tri­bu­tion re­quired from the de­vel­oper to­wards in­fra­struc­ture was still in place, but the over­all fig­ure would be re­duced due to the smaller num­ber of prop­er­ties.

James Berggren, agent for the ap­pli­ca­tion, told coun­cil­lors an ‘at­trac­tive lay­out’ had been pro­duced, in­sist­ing it would en­sure a ‘very high qual­ity’ devel­op­ment.

A ten-home devel­op­ment was also ap­proved, de­spite op­po­si­tion from a neigh­bour, Michelle Ash­ley, who rep­re­sented ‘worn down’ Slateacre res­i­dents to speak against the plans. She said the road was ‘heav­ily con­gested’ and the junc­tion of Slateacre Road and Joel Lane was a ‘death trap’,
