PLANS to build 32 three and four bedroom affordable homes in Timperley have been approved, following proposals by Trafford Council’s planning committee.

The land surrounding Canal Road and Deansgate Lane is currently occupied by industrial buildings on Skelton Road which are to be demolished to make way for the residential development with parking facilities.

The committee was in agreement that the redevelopment of the site has provided an opportunity to make the long term improvements to Canal Road possible.

Currently there are no objections to the redevelopment.

Following the council’s planning committee, they agreed that it was minded to grant the application subject to legal agreement.
