Stockport Council has submitted plans for a new warehouse and office space near Cheadle. 

The site in question is at the Adswood Depot, a brownfield parcel of land adjacent to the Adswood recycling centre. (The recycling centre, however, will not be affected by the plans.)

As part of the proposals, some of the existing buildings on the site would be demolished, and a new warehouse - plus a two-storey modular building to be used as office space - would be built in their place. 

However, the salt dome and vehicle wash facility which currently sit on the site would not be demolished. 

The new buildings would be used to house facilities which are due to be relocated from Birdhall Lane, following redevelopment in that area. 

The new warehouse would include parking, as well as single, double and triple storage units. It would also contain an office and equipment storage, and would include a poison and chemicals room. 

The offices meanwhile, would house general accommodation for council services.

As for traffic in the area, a report concluded "that the proposed development will not have a detriment to the operation of the existing network".

Close to the site is a railway line and a residential development. The land originally housed a brick works, and then a clay pit, before being infilled. Still, the salt dome and vehicle wash on site remain in use. 

The applicant argues that the proposed development would be "a great improvement to the current brownfield site". 

The applicant adds: "[It] positively utilises, reuses and recycles a previously developed brownfield urban site; is of a suitable density and scale for the site and location;

"[And] creates a series of spaces with a new sense of place within a new development for users."

A decision is expected in June. The standard consultation expiry date is 13 April, or 15 April for neighbours.
