Former Delph Chapel, Hill End Road And Delph Lane, Delph, Oldham, Lancashire OL3 5HW

Property Details
A superb development opportunity comprising a former stone chapel benefitting from approved planning permission to convert the existing building into either 9 small apartments or 7 apartments comprising 6 x 2 bedroom apartments and 1 x 3 bedroom town house arranged over ground, first, second floors and mezzanine. Additionally there is approved permission to construct 2 x 4 bedroom semi detached houses on the land to the side adjoining the chapel. The site extends in total to approximately 0.51 Hectares (1.26 Acres) and would make an ideal purchase for a local builder or developer seeking their next project.
The site occupies an elevated position at the junction of Delph Lane and Hill End Road within walking distance to the picturesque Delph village Centre and an excellent primary school. The village sits within the stunning Saddlworth area, a popular and sought after residential location within easy reach of local amenities and a variety of countryside pursuits on the doorstep. The nearby villages such as Uppermill, Greenfield and Diggle offer a further variety of shops, supermarkets and recreational facilities whilst Oldham lies 5.5 miles to the south west. Delph benefits from the nearby Greenfield train station and makes an easy leap onto the M62.

We have been provided with architects plans and reports to demonstrate that under current approved permissions the internal accommodation would comprise of the following:

Approx Site Area
Approximately 0.51 Hectares (1.26 Acres).
Planning permission was initially approved by Oldham Council in 2009 for the conversion of the chapel into 9 apartments (planning ref PA/055473/08) but was later amended to 7 units in 2017 under planning application MMA/339789/17. Approval was granted in 2018 for the construction of 2 semi detached houses on the adjoining land under planning ref PA/341040/17. We understand minor work was started on the chapel to ensure the planning permission remains extant whilst digging work was started on the land to allow the same. Documentation regarding this is included within the legal pack.
