Persimmon plans development of 69 homes on site in Butt Lane

West Avenue copyProperty developer Persimmon are proposing to develop a site formerly occupied by Celestica in West Avenue, Butt Lane.

The site is currently identified as employment land, but hasn’t been occupied by a business for many years.

The proposals is not yet at the planning aplication stage and Persimmon are asking residents for their views before taking it further. A spokesman for Persimmon Homes North West said: “We are currently preparing a full planning application on a parcel of land to the north of West Avenue in Kidsgrove.

“The site is currently vacant, having previously been occupied by Celestica for industrial uses around 10 years ago. Given the lack of market interest in the site being redeveloped for industrial use, it is considered that it can be utilised to deliver homes to meet the area’s housing shortage, easing the pressure on Greenfield and Green Belt sites.

“The proposed scheme is for 69 dwellings comprising a mix of townhouses, semi and detached houses. Access is proposed via an extension of the adopted highway at West Avenue into the site. The proposals will also include amenity space and an equipped play area, either as an on-site contribution or as an off-site financial contribution to develop and maintain an amenity space elsewhere in the district.

“We are currently seeking the views of local residents and would welcome their comments.”
