Continuum was appointed by Tameside MBC to lead the professional team appointed to deliver the Godley Green Garden Village Scheme. The scheme is one of the largest and most ambitious programmes of development and regeneration within the North West and City region. Godley Green provides transformational change to the Tameside housing market through delivery of up to 2,350 new quality homes.

The vision for Godley Green Garden Village is to create a nationally recognised vibrant and sustainable new community based on Garden Village principles. These principles are being proposed by Government as a policy initiative designed to promote well planned areas of significant residential growth.

Services Provided

Continuum have been involved since the initial stages of the project and have provided a critical role in driving the project forward. Continuum have led the project team through successful funding bids and the development of a hybrid planning application. Our detailed understanding of development has led the council to take a strategic approach to placemaking at Godley Green and with our support, they are now taking on the Land Promoter role.


The outputs of the site constraints and opportunities analysis were used to compile and submit a Housing Infrastructure Fund bid which was successful in securing £10,000,000 for the scheme enabling and infrastructure requirements.

We are currently working with the Council undertaking the project director role to help to ensure the progression of the project through the next stages of the development process.

The Godley Green planning application is being prepared for submission in early 2021 with an aim of securing planning permission in Q4 2021. The infrastructure delivery will be commencing immediately once the necessary permissions are granted.
