The Quarters is the name for the Grimshaw Street development.

Built on what is currently a car park they will be next door to the grade-II listed Seventh Day Adventist Church which dates back to 1857 and Grimshaw Street School dating back to 1836.

Before being a car park the building there has been used for residential purposes as part of the church.

Pillars Construction are behind the scheme and new drawings from architects David Cox show the proposal.

Mr Cox said: “With the vision to create a truly sensitive design we were mindful to enrich the local building form which currently exists.

“There are a number of vacant plots along Grimshaw Street and, by creating this viable option for a site which has seen various applications over the years, it is hoped it will act as a catalyst for further regeneration.”
