Urban design experts DPP Shape has provided New East Manchester, the urban regeneration company, with a revised masterplan for West Gorton.
The plan will be phased over ten years and involves the refurbishment of existing homes, a new park, community facilities and the development of 900 new homes.
New East Manchester is working together with Manchester City Council, the Homes & Communities Agency and housing association, Guinness Northern Counties, to take forward a regeneration plan with residents in West Gorton.
The first phase of the development includes proposals for 76 local authority flats on Pottery Lane, more semi-detached homes and a small number of bungalows on Gortonvilla Walk, new allotments and a new car park for Manchester Climbing Centre on Bennett Street.
Suzanne Price, director of neighbourhoods for New East Manchester, said: "Shape did a fantastic job of reworking the masterplan to help us get West Gorton's regeneration back on track and deliver a viable and sustainable programme over the next ten years."
Shelagh McNerney, managing director at DPP Shape, said: "The approval of New East Manchester, Manchester City Council and the Homes & Communities Agency to proposals within the revised plan for West Gorton demonstrates that even in tough economic conditions and uncertainty, there is a need for flair, strong ideas and sensible solutions to assist neighbourhoods improve and regenerate.
"This new masterplan provides the city with a strengthened position from which to deliver the next phase of regeneration working closely with local residents."
In January, NEM and Manchester City Council announced that West Gorton would receive £22.9m for new council homes.
It followed an award of £11.5m from the Homes & Communities Agency, which are jointly funding the project alongside the council.
