Former Sainsbury’s site to host hundreds of homes

A site where a Sainsbury’s supermarket once stood in Stockport, Cheshire’s town centre could potentially be transformed to provide town houses and over 560 apartments, according to plans newly submitted by Amstone Ventures.

Architects in Chester and Stockport often assist developers in obtaining planning permission for their projects. With a clear understanding of local regulations, they can also act on behalf of home builders, handling all communications with councils regarding plans and facilitating a fast track towards a green light.

The development, entitled No.1 Knightsbridge, could involve a building with 15 storeys and a total of 563 homes, along with surrounding greenspaces and a shared garden for residents. If approved by planners, the apartments offered would feature a mixture of one-to-three-bedroom homes.

According to Business Live, Operations Director for Amstone, Martin Halsey, commented on the project:

“Stockport is a town centre that is changing rapidly, and we’re excited to be part of it with such a significant site, close to the historic town centre. We can see a vibrant and buzzing residential community forming as a number of schemes come together to contribute to Stockport’s ambitious residential plan.”

Local councillors charged with the area’s regeneration and economy have commented that they are keen to see the Sainsbury’s site on Warren Street being brought into use swiftly, and that the project complements the borough’s plans for Stockport town centre.

If Stockport Borough Council approve the recently submitted plans, works on the site could begin in late 2022.
