Battersby Hat Works on Hemshaw Lane in Offerton secures planning consent and is set to be transformed
Proposals by developer Lane End to convert the Battersby Hat Works in Offerton into 144 homes have been granted planning permission by Stockport Council.
The project on what is currently known as Offerton Industrial Estate includes the demolition of several industrial buildings and the redevelopment of two larger buildings on the site, fronting Hempshaw Lane.
The former hat works will be converted into 45 homes, including 16 apartments, 15 houses, and 13 mews homes, while a feature water tower will also be retained. There will also be 99 new-build homes, with a mix of 48 two-beds, 33 three-beds, and 11-four beds, alongside seven two-bed mews houses.
Working in partnership with housing association Stockport Homes, 55 of the houses will be brought forward for market sale, while 79 will be for shared ownership and 10 will be for affordable rent..
