No more Hardy Farm

Postby gitface » Tue Jul 01, 2014 10:37 am

This planning application went in a while ago. Doesn't look like too much of a worry to me, but there was some chatter on Facebook about ownership of the meadows. I'd assumed it was publicly owned, but apparently not...

They're talking about knocking down the student flats and building houses . Nothing about building elsewhere, such as the fields.

Fair enough, IMHO.

I'm not necessarily against but wonder about the impact of 23 3 storey houses in a small area - unless they have acquired more land surrounding. Unfortunately when I tried to look at the map on the council site, I got an error message not a map so it's difficult to tell. BTW, the football club are also redeveloping the old pavilion which is fair enough.

The land belonged to Manchester University from the 70s on. I imagine they have sold it to a developer as they sold the meadows to the football club a few years ago.

about 24 month ago I received a letter with a planning application number which was about an application to knock down the changing rooms facing the student accommodation and a respite home for recovering drug addicts and alcholics by a charity who had bought the area but I never heard anything again does anyone know where its up to

I expect they'll be the usual shoebox-style tall houses, in which case the existing student flats site is plenty big enough...

Just had a look at the plans. Looks like they are going to get 23 homes onto the site without extending onto the meadows. I expect it will be rather less idyllic than in the artist's impressions of children p[laying on a bezutiful grassed yard in the middle of the site and the architecture is depressingly similar to that of the student flats i.e. little square boxes. There doesn't seem to be a car park but I suppose it'll happen as there doesn't seem to be much reason to object.

Pretty much what I guessed. Families instead of students?

No brainer.
