REVISED plans to develop eight apartments on an Altrincham high street have been slammed by residents.

Ben Fearns, on behalf of Novo Property Group, is seeking permission to revamp Oak House, Barrington Road, into a mixture of two and three-bed flats.

But the new scheme has been blasted by neighbours who have cited parking, noise and traffic problems as reasons Trafford Council should reject the proposal.

The scheme includes redeveloping Oak House to provide six apartments, as well as erecting an extension to the rear, which would offer an additional two.

Previously, the plan had been to convert Oak House and build two properties at the rear of the site.

The application was withdrawn in January after council officers raised concerns about the design of the two homes.

A planning document stated: “The scheme now being proposed has been carefully designed to overcome these concerns.

“It will deliver new dwellings on this brownfield site, in a manner which responds positively to the site context and will ensure the amenity of existing and future residents is preserved.”

The plans also include eight car parking spaces, cycling provision and bin stores. 

In an objection letter, resident Julie Carney appealed to the authority to reject the scheme because “there would be two vehicles per property which means that provision should be made for 16 cars, not eight”.

It added: “The area is already congested due to lack of parking provision and gridlocked at certain times of the day.”

Another resident, Bev Robinson, objected on the grounds that Barrington Road was already “difficult to cross” without the addition of more vehicles.
