Regeneration of a failing industrial estate for 76 homes including 13 affordable dwellings. Planning permission was gained following assessment of the local employment land supply. Construction work has now been completed and the site is fully built out.
- Former concrete batching plant converted to a multi-let industrial estate occupying a site of approximately 3.7 acres.
- The site was acquired August 2007, at the time the majority of the estate was vacant and derelict.
- The ongoing employment use was unfeasible due to the site's location within a residential area.
- Intrusive site surveys and investigations into the historic use were carried out to appraise potential levels of contamination and ground conditions beneath the existing development.
- Although the site is not allocated for employment given the historic use Northern Trust opened detailed consultation with the Local Authority to discuss the best re-use of the site and a form of development which removes the existing non-conforming industrial use.
- Having acquired the site in late 2007 Northern Trust began preparing an outline planning application, consultants were appointed to address the loss of employment, highways and drainage implications of the new development where assessed.
- Planning consent has been granted, subject to the completion of the S.106 agreement, for 66 dwellings.
- Northern Trust appointed Whittle Jones Building Services to undertake the demolition of the vacant industrial buildings in order to eliminate the sites vacant rates liability.
- 13 affordable units delivery agreed with Contour Housing.
- Northern Trust has entered into a Joint Venture scheme with Fellows Homes for the development of the site.
- The final phase of construction has been completed and the site is now built it.
