Toxteth Street

Final phase of Toxteth Street regen in for planning

Plans for the third and final phase of Lovell’s Toxteth Street regeneration in Openshaw, including 91 homes, have been submitted to Manchester City Council.

Outline planning approval for the regeneration of the Toxteth Street neighbourhood was granted in October 2006.

Lovell started the first phase, which included 96 homes, 50 of which were classified as affordable homes, in 2008.

Phase two, including 164 two and three-bed houses, is currently under construction and is already partially occupied. The homes, available for open market sale, are due to complete by the end of 2018.

The final phase, now submitted to planners, includes 91 two, three, and four bed houses on a 6-acre site bordering Fairfield Road, Ashton Old Road, Alpha Street, Gransmoor Road, and Siverlace Avenue.

This includes 25 two-bed homes; 40 three-bed homes; and 26 four-bed properties. These will be available for open market sale with no affordable housing provision, which Lovell said “should not be required” given the 50 affordable homes already provided as part of phase one.

Subject to planning, work on the final phase is due to start in April 2018.

The professional team includes Seymour Planning and PRP as architect.
