A detailed planning application has been submitted to build 30 new council-owned homes in South Collyhurst, Manchester.
Designed for Far East Consortium UK and Manchester City Council, the housing development will be located between Whitley Road and Winscombe Drive, and forms part of the wider Victoria North masterplan, the area’s first major regeneration in 50 years.
The proposals have been developed following extensive community engagement and includes a mix of 16 apartments and 14 three-bedroom houses.
The three-bedroom townhouses will each have roof terraces, front driveways and rear gardens. Their size and appearance has been designed to complement and enhance the character of the surrounding areas whilst setting the tone for the future regeneration of the neighbourhood.
The apartment building will include a range of two and three-bedroom duplexes as well as single-level apartments.
Low carbon family housing is central to the designs and the area will also be supported by bike storage, electric charging points, greening and garden spaces, along with the planting of 26 new trees.
A decision on the application will likely be made in the summer.
