Mark Haines, Assistant Director - Technical, said: “We are really pleased with the decision of the councillors to approve this significant housing scheme.

“We are mindful of the need for good quality affordable housing in the community and Castlefield has the potential to deliver 194 new homes of which 80% will be affordable.

“We look forward to working with the planners in the new year to finalise plans and take the next step forward.”
