Novo Property Group is inviting a second round of community views on the future of the former Stamford Arms in Little Bollington after feedback from an earlier consultation.

The 15,000 sq ft Lymm Road site, which includes the former pub, outbuildings and a car park, is located near to the Bowdon Roundabout and close to the Swan With Two Nicks pub.

Following a community engagement event held in October, Altrincham developer Novo will now be presenting updated proposals at the Swan with Two Nicks on Thursday 13th February, between 5pm and 9pm. Also in attendance will be Project 3 Architects, Avison Young and Land Studio, the other contractors involved in the scheme.

The proposals include a 50-50 split of affordable and open market units, and Novo is seeking an affordable housing provider to help deliver the scheme.

The former pub had changed its name from the Stamford Arms to Home in 2007 but closed down in 2012. It has been vacant ever since and has fallen into disrepair.

How the original proposals for the site looked

The site’s original owner, Enterprise Inns, had first listed the pub for £1.4m before cutting the price to £1m, but it was eventually offered at auction by Pugh Auctions. When that route did not attract any interest either, Novo stepped in and concluded a deal for an undisclosed fee.

Novo is also behind a number of Altrincham schemes including Brown Street Car Park redevelopment and Weavers Cottages on Regent Road.
