Plan for apartments above former bank


Plans have been submitted to convert redundant bank offices in the village centre into apartments.

Salford based, Mango Homes are seeking planning permission to create four new residential units on the first and second floor of the former Barclays Bank, which was built in 1904. The existing ground and basement will remain for commercial use.

The one-bedroom apartments will be accessed via a new glazed entrance with stairs and a lift to all floors and four cycle parking spaces will be provided.

The development will include a scheme of structural repairs to the listed building and clock, as well as repairs to make the listed building watertight to "secure the historic fabric for the future".

Plans can be viewed on the Cheshire East Council website by searching for planning reference 22/4743M.

A parking space each? Where exactly?

Has anyone checked out Mango Homes?
I may be wrong but as far as I can see it no longer exists.
Apparently Philip Bradby , the person putting in the planning app, used to be a director but resigned many years ago.
If anyone could enlighten me , I would be grateful.

Having read the plans section

3.3 Car parking

3.3.1 Due to the highly accessible location of the proposal site, which provides the opportunity for modern town centre living without the need for access to the
private car, no car parking is proposed.

In the new world order of climate change fanaticism you wont need a car. You walk to Alderley Edge Station and get a train.........oh they're on strike.......

They don't even run train when they are NOT on strike. Thursday 15th December is NOT a strike day, but there are no trains at all from Alderley to anywhere.

And don't blame privatisation; Northern Trains who should be operating services this Thursday are one of the rail franchises taken in-house by the state. It's nationalised!

Hi Mark,

I've seen you many times on your bike in the village! Maybe they could equip each flat with an electric bike charging point!

By the way, you don't have to be a fanatic to be concerned about climate change. Easy to be cynical in Alderley Edge, but not in Somalia or Pakistan.
