A site for 60 houses

Fencing has been erected alongside the site of the "Bredbury Curve" development. According to the notices "Viaduct Partnerships" will be providing 60 homes for "Affordable Rent" and for "Shared Ownership".
Bredbury Curve Development
In 2015 plans were put forward for the Bredbury Curve Development. Although recommended for acceptance the plans were rejected in March 2016 LinkExternal link but the plans were subsequently amended slightly and then approved.

The proposal involves the filling in of the existing railway cutting with inert materials and the construction of 60 dwellings with associated new highways, a junction with Stockport Road East, landscaping, parking and amenities.

The site was previously a railway cutting that accommodated a rail line which linked the Glazebrook to Godley Line to the Ashbury Junction to New Mills Junction line. The scheme is designed in such a way that a corridor will be retained along the northern corner of the site that will enable a future tram/train line to be constructed between the Ashbury Junction to New Mills Junction line and Whitefield Road and then onwards towards Stockport Town Centre.
