Plans have been submitted for the erection of seven dwellings at the existing car park to the rear of Whitecroft House at 51 Water Lane.
Salford based Osmium Estates Ltd are seeking planning permission for a block of 7 two-bedroomed homes with small private gardens and a larger communal area to the front.
The Salford based company have also applied to change the use of the 1st and 2nd floor of Whitecroft House from offices to dwelling to create 12 apartments.
The planning application states "Whilst it is likely that the two schemes will be brought forward in phases, is the intention that the developments will complement and enhance one another. In this regard, careful consideration has been given to how the two schemes interrelate, and opportunities have been taken to create links between the developments and ensure the site functions well as a whole."
The car park currently has 45 spaces which will be reduced to 32 - 9 of the parking bays will be provided for the existing and retained Co-Op store, these include 2 bays for disabled visitors. Whilst 23 spaces will be provided for the residents of both the 7 dwellings, and the 12 apartments being created through the conversion of Whitecroft House - each property will have a designated parking bay, leaving 4 spaces to be allocated for visitor parking only. Additionally 14 cycle spaces are included within a cycle store.
The entrance to the site is taken directly off Water Lane and comes in via the east of Whitecroft House. This new scheme also includes a new pedestrian bridge connection into Whitecroft House. This provides residents with access to the 7 houses via the lift within the existing building.
