Flats plan ap­proved

Stockport Express - - News -

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.
