Flats plan approved
BLUEPRINTS to provide a 14-storey apartment block to house 164 flats have been approved by Stockport town hall bosses.
Developer Urbanize Homes had previously submitted plans for a 66m tower on the Piccadilly car park site once occupied by Greenhale House.
But the original designs for a 22-storey block of flats had been scaled back amid concerns it would create a ‘Benidorm’ skyline will go ahead.
Designed to stand taller than both the 61m Pendlebury Towers and Hanover Towers, the original scheme would have seen the development of Stockport’s tallest building.
During the meeting Coun Julian Lewis-Booth described it as an ‘excellent’ scheme but was disappointed there was no meeting space for residents.
