Plans have been lodged for a proposed new build private residential development composed of two buildings located in Chadderton and Crompton Court, Percy Street, in the city centre.

The proposed development is intended to help create a transition between the low- rise construction which dominates the immediate area and the development under construction with new high rise apartments

The site sits within a predominantly residential area, rich in amenities such as NHS services, schools and places of worship. Shops, pubs and restaurants can be found along Church Street, which lies just approximately 20m south east.

The development will be next door to the Exchange block apartment block in the former Bhailok Court building in Pole Street.
