Plans for affordable homes on the site of the former Sale Masonic Hall have been revised after the old proposals were blocked a year ago.

Gecko Homes is now after residents' opinions before its new proposals are submitted to Trafford Council.

The plans for the site on Tatton Road were for around 30 apartments, but these old proposals were blocked after 50 letters of opposition were received, with the concerns centred on the size of the development.

The new proposals are for 10 houses and 20 apartments, and now include the site of what was once Sale Police Station, as Gecko Homes bids to spread a similar number of affordable homes over a bigger area.

They also appear to include a number of parking spaces, which were lacking from the initial application.

Wendy Mills, head of development, said: "We're eager to bring forward our plans for the former Sale Masonic Hall and police station site.

"We've listened to the concerns of Trafford Council and we've responded with a scheme that reduces the building height and protects the amenity of local residents.

"By incorporating the police station, we're able to provide a mix of 30 affordable homes, including townhouses and apartments, all available for shared ownership.

"With more people looking for affordable homes in Trafford than properties available, we believe that the proposals represent an ideal opportunity for local people to make their first step onto the housing ladder.

"Set within walking distance of Sale town centre and Sale Metrolink station, the site offers a real opportunity to deliver affordable homes in the heart of the town."

In order to assess residents' opinions, Gecko Homes are organising an event at the Sale Excelsior Club on Symons Road next Wednesday between 4pm and 7.30pm. They are also delivering a newsletter to around 2,000 addresses in the area.

Gecko Homes did not reveal when its new proposals will be submitted to Trafford Council.
