825 Wilmslow Road, Public Consultation Meeting

We are consulting on plans to redevelop a site on Wilmslow Road at Didsbury into a unique development of just 85 properties, mixing new build homes alongside historic buildings. The site contains a mix of buildings currently used for offices set within spacious grounds including a large parking area, mature trees and landscaping.

Our proposals would see The Cedars, a Grade II listed Victorian Villa converted and extended to provide 21 apartments, the listed Lodge House would remain as one unique home and the Coach House converted to two properties.

We also plan to convert one of the modern buildings on the site, the red brick Parklands, into 39 contemporary apartments.

A second modern building, Aspen House, would be demolished to make way for 22 new build homes.

The preliminary proposals can be viewed here:

Plans to Assure Future for Standish Heritage Buildings

Plans to Assure Future for Standish Heritage Buildings


JUNE, 2017

News & Events, Planning Consultation.

Following close consultation with community groups, Stroud District Council and Historic England The P J Livesey Group have submitted detailed development proposals for the former Standish Hospital and the neighbouring Westridge Hospital sites at Stroud in Gloucestershire.

The main Standish Hospital closed in 2004 and the P J LIvesey Group were appointed preferred developer by current site owners, the Homes and Communities Agency. The soon to be vacant adjacent adult care facility, owned by 2gether NHS Foundation Trust, will be incorporated into the scheme as part of a comprehensive redevelopment. If approved, the plans would secure the future of six heritage buildings which have spanned the centuries. The centrepiece Grade II listed Standish House, its neighbouring stable block together with two Art Deco style ward buildings and the gate lodge on Horsemarling Lane would all be sympathetically converted to ensure they are preserved for future generations. There are also plans to save the site’s distinctive hydrotherapy pool building, which was previously considered for demolition, making way for two distinctive houses. The conversion would be further enhanced by extensive improvements to the grounds, including new footpaths and enhanced green spaces across the site. Making the most of the unique mature landscape and incorporating a range of ecological habitat improvements, the application outlines details for the provison of bespoke accommodation for rare species of bats. These measures would be supported by an ‘enabling development’ of 98 high quality newly built family homes designed specifically to compliment the location. Properties will will range from two to five bedrooms, catering for a broad spectrum of potential future residents. The six heritage buildings will be converted into 50 unique properties:

  • Grade II Standish House – 15 mansion style apartments
  • Stable Block – 5 houses
  • Art Deco Men’s Ward building – 13 houses
  • Art Deco Women’s Ward Building – 10 houses and 4 apartments
  • 1970’s hydrotherapy unit – two single level properties
  • The Estate Lodge House – one house
The plans are now being considered by Stroud District Council and if approved the group anticipates being on site in late 2017 with the first properties launched for sale in 2018.

“Sympathetically converted to ensure they are preserved for future generations”

We anticipate demand will be high, so please take some time to register your early interest here to ensure you are kept updated with all the latest news and developments from Standish.

A recent exhibition outlined our ambitions for the site and we were delighted with the response from the local community. All comments will be taken on board and help shape the detail as plans progress.
