John Thompson bags planning for £7.5m Oldham housing

[FIRST LOOK + PLANS + PROJECT DATA] John Thompson & Partners has landed planning for its Oldham Council housing scheme at North Werneth, Manchester

The award-winning practice won approval for the 64 unit ‘mixed-tenure’ housing project last Wednesday (28 April).

The ‘homezone’ proposal includes a new linear park that creates a visual link between the historic St John’s Church and Hartford Mill.

A formal landscape runs down the church hill to the site gateway, terminating in a hard landscaped square connecting to the mill.

The scheme aims achieve Code for Sustainable Homes Level 3.

Donald Sayers, project architect said: ‘The designs have been based on sustainable community principles - to develop attractive housing and environments in all neighbourhoods and to implement strategies for energy efficiency and renewable energy for new developments.’
