Lovell lodges plans for next phase of £235m Miles Platting regen
Lovell has submitted a full planning application for 129 homes in Miles Platting in Manchester as part of its wider regeneration of the area.
The housebuilder’s proposals include two-bed and three-bed semi-detached and terraced properties, as well as an apartment block of eight homes, off Varley Street and Berkshire Road.
The site, known as Area 11, was formerly home to council houses, a swimming pool, and a doctors’ surgery, which were subject to a CPO and demolition to make way for the scheme.
PRP is acting as architect for the project.
Lovell’s plans form part of its wider £235m PFI regeneration of the area, which covers 264 acres in East Manchester. The five-year initiative will see Lovell refurbish 1,520 existing council houses and build 1,800 new homes and apartments.
The first phase of the project, Gener8, contains 85 two, three and four bed homes, the first of which were released to the market in 2014.
The wider scheme was given outline planning permission in 2006.
The PFI is being delivered through the Renaissance Consortium partnership, comprising of Lovell as developer, Adactus HA to manage the affordable housing, equity providers Morgan Sindall Investments, IIC and Adactus, and external funders Dexia.
