I'm sure far more dilapidated buildings have been renovated for similar cause. This scheme looks thoroughly unimaginative and I don't understand the thinking behind knocking that building down and then having a damn car park fronting onto the street, while two large apartment buildings are stuck at the back completely overlooking existing residents homes.

It also seems a real shame that the (former retail?) units fronting the top of Market St can't be brought back into that use. There will surely be demand at some point, as local centres seem to flourish with independents and cafes (great location just down from the canal too). Even if they were demolished and this end of the centre given a mini supermarket it would be better and help to gently expand the retail centre and provide some choice.

Having a bland apartment building looking down Market St and a car park in place of that characterful piece of history seems a poor aspiration.

It's a magnificent looking building. It would be a great pity to lose it.

The building inside is in a terrible state and would require massive reworking to make it habitable.  Much easier to knock it down and purpose build something that meets current building regulations.

Then put in a offer, buy it yourself and put it to a good usage.....   Otherwise don't complain when someone else takes action to provide much needed housing.

That's the Albert Schools building. It looks as if it's been going downhill for a long time:

It looks pretty terrible now.

It would be nice if there was some 1 bed room and studio flats rather then all 2 bed, however I expect the requirement to provide a parking space for each flat stopped that, so not allowing cheaper flats to be built.

The plot would become even better if the garage site could be purchased too. Residential, retail or a maybe even a combination.

If I was a neighbour of the site I'd probably prefer residential. Be interesting to know how neighbours feel.

At a quick glance this looks like a good scheme, and hopefully these will be 'affordable' places for first-time buyers.

But I agree that it would be better still if it extended to the junction and replaced 'Chirch Lane Stores' (sic) and its little car park.

Here's a direct link to the Consultation page on the Emery Planning Site:

And you can make comments via the site here: http://www.emeryplanning.com/index.php/steps-church

Here's the before and after plans:





Seems a shame not to use the off-licence building and car park too. That's going to look a bit tatty stuck on the end.

Looks like another housing development in the very centre of Marple.

Emery planning have put through a proposal for the site between the garage and the off-licence on church lane. Which includes the demolition of the E&E overalls building and neighbouring two empty shops and building behind them, to create 24 apartments and parking.

The sketches include for a junction opposite the dentists and a side road through the off-licence car park onto the roundabout.

www.emeryplanning.com should have the details from tomorrow.
