Apartment blocks proposed for Chorlton

A planning application has been submitted to Manchester City Council to build two blocks of flats at 421 Barlow Moor Road in Chorlton.

The plan includes the demolition of units and a detached house that already exists on the site, and the construction of 39 one and two bed “affordable shared housing” apartments, in two stepped blocks.

Block A will house 25 apartments and will be stepped from three to five storeys, whereas Block B will house 14 apartments and will be three storeys. There are also plans for a communal garden, 24 parking spaces and 39 cycle spaces.

The unit is bound by a Shell garage to the north, Cundiff road to the south, Oakhouse Drive to the west and Barlow Moor Road to the east.

The plans have been submitted by developer Liveman Properties on behalf of Southway Housing.

Pegasus is attached as the planner and DV Architects is the architect.

What do you mean by affordable? What is needed is more social rent housing.

By Jannette Storey

Hope something is going to be done about Leon’s. Fabric shop, adjacent, it’s an eyesore to the area, also attracts lots of parking on the pavement,by customers, it’s an accident waiting to happen. Hope the prop is included in this redevelopment, good news re the new construction to take place.much needed affordable housing.

The renders don’t show the proposed development on the site of Leons, may not be strictly required but more realistic.
