Site At Corner Cobden View Rd Northfield Rd Crookes

Recommended Posts

Many people have put work into creating pleasant garden here

 

Now big shutter boards have been put up- boulders and stones thrown onto flowering plants

Empty postcrete bags left to blow around

 

Anyone know whats going on?

Presume building going up on site?

Noticed the old advertising hoarding come down the other week so presumed something was happening there.

The site has recently been sold at auction, the new owner has decided to fence it off.  There seems to be no  planning permission for building.  Whatever happens, I can't see it will be for the benefit of the local people.

Was sold for £150000 apparently. Imagine buying that a month before the pandemic. Doh!

New owner wants to build on it I have heard. Fences is first part of the campaign to keep locals out so they can apply for planning permission. A local councillor has taken an interest, and it seems the path on the land has been in use for decades by the public.

Have heard it’s going to be a couple of shop units and flats above.

 

sounds good to me - some modern retail space up there could attract something new to the area.

I think some new retail space up there is a good thing.

 

hopefully it will attract something interesting for the area. 
 

maybe a new bar or restaurant or a couple of decent shops or something.

There's quite a lot of empty units up there already though.  I assume they'll get better returns making flats.

I hope planning permission is refused.   Loads of shops...need some pleasant greenery.

I believe it’s going to be flats above with shops below from an earlier post.

 

New retail space is more likely to get taken on.

 

had it been a significant green space in the area I would be against it but it’s really not despite the best efforts of locals to tidy it up - it’s just a corner plot previously dominated by advertising hoardings.
