SUSTAINABILITY AT THE HEART OF TWO NEW APPLICATIONS FOR HALL & CO

Acting on behalf of property developer Hall & Co, Asteer Planning has submitted outline planning applications for a total of 56 new homes at two separate schemes in the North West and North Wales.

 

Plans for Tack Lea Works, a 4.2 ha scheme in Birtle near Rochdale, will transform a former mill site into a sustainable living development comprising 26 new homes and 6 apartments.

 

The development will include a mix of contemporary stone cottages and mill houses, reflecting the local character, which will be super-insulated to minimise heating and cooling requirements.  Central to the plans is sustainability with the aim to reduce energy consumption and water usage,  incorporating rain water housing and at least one renewable energy source.

 

In North Wales plans have been submitted to Conwy County Borough Council for the transformation of a site in Dwygfylchi, Conwy for another residential scheme with sustainability at its heart. The scheme will offer 24 new properties in a mix of 2,3 and 4 bed homes and shared equity.

 

The new homes will take inspiration from the history of the area using local materials, including stone, render and slate to ensure the development, a mixture of converted buildings, rendered cottages, stone worker cottages and Victorian Villas, will blend seamlessly into their surroundings.

 

Asteer is also working with Hall & Co, a family-run developer with a reputation for quality and good design, on the redevelopment of Kings Row in Macclesfield, a 10 home development, part of the wider redevelopment of the former school site.
