Harrow Estates has secured planning permission for the residential-led mixed use redevelopment of the former Woodford Aerodrome site.
Following approval of the proposals at Stockport Metropolitan Borough Council’s Planning & Highways Regulation Committee in July, Harrow Estates’ planning and legal teams have worked closely with the Council’s officers and were delighted to receive the decision notice earlier this week.
The technical team is now coordinating the demolition and earthworks necessary to prepare the site for the development of up to 920 homes, commercial uses, extra care accommodation, shops, a primary school, community facilities and a variety of publicly accessible amenity and recreational open spaces.
Tim Booth, Planning Manager at Harrow Estates said: “Having agreed the Section 106 package, we are very pleased to have received the main planning consent for the site. Demolition works have already commenced and we will now be in a position to progress discharging planning conditions to enable construction works to commence. The first phase of the development (145 homes) will be delivered by Redrow Homes.”
