A TOTAL of 10 applications will be discussed by the planning committee meeting tonight.

Town hall planners have recommended approving all 10 of the proposals – but councillors will have the final say.

The meeting, which gets underway at 7pm at Bury Town Hall tonight, is expected to be well attended given the number of applications to be discussed.

There will be an opportunity for ward councillors to speak as well as one supporter and one objector for each application.

268 homes at Bevis Green Works, Mill Road, Walmersley

Hundreds of homes could be built on the Tetrosyl site despite concerns from residents and councillors about the plans.

The application to build 268 homes off Walmersley Old Road was lodged seven years after planning permission was granted in principle for housing at the site.

Barratt Homes hopes to build a range of properties, including two-bed mews houses, three-bed townhouses, three and four-bed semi-detached and detached properties and two-bed flats.

Residents are worried about an increase in traffic as well as pressure on school places and GP surgeries in the area.

Convenience store and petrol station at the former Jolly Carters site in Bury and Bolton Road, Radcliffe

A single-storey retail unit and a petrol station could be built at the site of a former pub and restaurant.

The building, which was located where Bury and Bolton Road meets Watling Street, was demolished in 2017.

But councillors James Mason and Roy Walker have objected to the application saying that this stretch of road is a risk and an "accident waiting to happen".

A total of 162 letters have been received from residents raising a long list of concerns.

Opening hours would remain restricted from 8am to 8pm.

Accommodation with offices, new outbuilding for classroom and seclusion suite at Cygnet Hospital in High Bank, Bury

A hospital facility which provides mental health care and other services could undergo a transformation to extend its care provision.

The car park would also be reconfigured to provide an additional 56 spaces.

Erection of first-floor rear extension and outbuilding in rear garden in Westcombe Drive, Bury

A semi-detached house located on a corner plot at the junction with Rushmere Drive could be extended.
