CONSULTATION over an application to build 33 houses on green belt land ends on Thursday.
Dukinfield-based Bardsley Group hopes to build the properties on part of Dukinfield Golf Club, close to its border with Stalybridge.
Tameside Council’s planning committee will decide whether to approve or refuse the application.
But anyone concerned or backing the proposal has until Thursday, February 28, to register their voice in the consultation.
A planning statement describes the area concerned as ‘waste land which is not used by the golf club and therefore rarely maintained.
‘A parcel of land to the west contained an old garage site with the remains of old garages. This part of the site is used for fly tipping and where youths congregate due to the lack of natural surveillance.
‘The site remains vacant and is best described as wasteland that is within the private ownership of the golf club but not used as part of the golf course.’
If approved, the scheme will see detached and semi-detached houses built but the applicants insist they will do everything they can to minimise disruption.
The statement adds: “The proposed houses have been set away from the southern boundary of the site so that they do not have an overbearing or dominating impact for occupiers the houses on Yew Tree Lane or The Fairways.”
However, opposition in the area remains strong with more people completing feedback forms saying they object to the application than those who support it.
