Cb3 are delighted that Rochdale Council has granted planning permission for the Grade II listed ‘Crimble Mill’.
The iconic, rurally located, former spinning mill on the outskirts of Heywood, Rochdale was constructed circa 1825. Cb3, as part of an extensive project team, which includes Redwater Developments Ltd, CJ Partnership Environmental Architects, Blackett Ord Conservation Engineering, GLD Technical Consulting Ltd, and Lichfield’s Ltd, has been charged with the restoration of the existing mill, and change of use of the upper floors to 33 dwellings with ground floor commercial floorspace (Classes E, F1 or F2). External works include the replacement/removal of existing bridges, restoration of the mill pond, and leat and construction of flood alleviation measures.
The property is currently vacant, in a poor state of repair, and consequently, on Historic England’s Building at Risk Register – making this an ideal opportunity to restore an excellent piece of building stock. Site wide, the project will also include the construction of 180 dwellings, associated engineering/retention works, the provision of surface water balancing ponds, open space, and landscape and ecological improvements.
