The plans for the 11.25 acre site fronting Shelton New Road include around 110 family homes plus a local shops and a pub/restaurant. A new junction off the main road is also planned. At least 220 jobs will be generated during construction, the developer said.
The site was formerly used by Dyson Industries to manufacture ceramic heat-resistant products and became surplus to requirement following a restructuring of the business some years ago. IPS Ceramics, which occupies a small part of the site, will be relocating locally as part of the plans.
St Modwen’s proposals follow on from the residential redevelopment of the former tile works on the opposite side of Shelton New Road and on Brick Kiln Lane.
