Plans for New Apartments in Historic Stockport Town Centre Building Revealed


A developer has shared its plans to create new apartments in a historic building in Stockport town centre.

The Britannia Group, which bought the former Stockport Probation Centre at 19 – 37 High Street in the summer, is proposing to create 45 new homes while maintaining the character and height of the original building.

The site was built in 1900 and was used by wholesale grocers C J Preston & Sons before it became the probation office in 1983. The building has been empty since September this year.

One and two bedroom apartments are included in the designs spread across the original building and more recent new building which is attached. The proposal also includes a new garden space and a living wall, which is aimed at improving the boundary with the primary school next door.

The developer has worked with Stockport council and St Joseph’s RC Primary School on the plan, and aims to submit a planning application in the new year.

Nick Carter, development director at the Britannia Group, said: “Stockport is thriving, there’s a huge amount of potential and a lot of demand for homes close to the centre of the town.

“We hope local people are as excited as we are by our emerging plans for the former probation centre. “
