- Planning application of former school in vacant brownfield site
- 54no. residential dwellings
Linden Homes, the residential arm of Galliford Try Group instructed us to prepare and manage a planning application proposing residential development at the site of the former St Augustine of Canterbury R C High School, Grange Avenue, Oldham. The application proposed the development of 54 new homes.
The vacant brownfield site was not allocated for any particular use under the current development plan, however it was identified in the 2012 SHLAA to come forward for the development of housing within the plan period.
Following submission of the planning application, we worked effectively and efficiently with the Council and other statutory consultees to reduce the amount of pre-commencement conditions as far as possible and resolve all layout and design issues.
The proposal was determined at a planning committee in February 2016, with members voting unanimously in favour of the application.
