Our vision is about much more than new homes. We aim to create a great place to live, work, rest and play by creating a vibrant, walkable and balanced community. Alongside new homes, our vision seeks to deliver publicly accessible green open spaces and community facilities for enjoyment by new and existing residents.
We aim to create a thriving walkable neighbourhood that incorporates a range of community facilities for enjoyment by new and existing residents. In summary, our vision seeks to:
Our vision has been carefully crafted to incorporate various features to improve social wellbeing of new and existing residents. At the heart of the development will be a new ‘open-to-all’ community hub and gardens, which will be made possible by retaining the existing buildings.
Wider community benefits include:
The community hub could include a wide range of facilities for use by local people, including: a café, GP consultation area, flexible working areas and a nursery.
A wide range of recreational facilities including a multi-use games area, bowling green, tennis courts and biodiversity nature trails, designed to encourage healthy and active lifestyles.
The proposals will also secure the long-term future of the Heald Green Theatre Company building.
Extensive networks of usable publicly accessible green open spaces will be delivered in addition to opportunities to improve pedestrian and cycle connectivity to surrounding recreational areas, including Rose Vale Park, the Gatley Brook corridor, Scholes Park and St Ann’s Road North Allotments.
We believe that our vision presents a unique opportunity to create a new neighbourhood based on 20-minute walkable principles, whilst delivering significant benefits to the wider community and improved social wellbeing.
The neighbourhood will be accessible to existing residents, enabling local people to enjoy new community facilities and green, open spaces.
The location of the site allows for integration into the wider community, whilst providing access to local services, shops and facilities. In turn, this will encourage new residents to ‘live locally’ and help encourage spend in local businesses.
