New signs and fencing at Gee Cross
Hyde College on Stockport Road, Gee Cross opened around 1960. It later became part of Tameside College and was closed in July 2007. Having been in mothballs for many years the site was sold in order to help fund a super college in Ashton under Lyne and despite being on Green Belt land a planning application was made for an estate of 40 houses to be built on the site. It appears that work is now about to start on "a collection of new 4 & 5 bedroom homes".
According to a local politician the developers have gained outline permission which is not the same as "permission to build" and they currently have a "real" planning application which started earlier this month. So perhaps the signs are a little premature.
