Miller lodges plans for Manchester College redevelopment  

Dan Whelan

The housebuilder proposes a 228-home development on the 18-acre Northenden Campus after acquiring the site from LTE Group earlier this year. 

Miller Homes’ development, off Sale Road south of Manchester city centre, would feature a mix of two-, three- and four-bedroom homes, 20% of which are earmarked as affordable. 

Existing buildings on the site would be demolished to make way for the houses once Manchester College vacates in 2022. 

A consultation on the plans was carried out earlier this year. 

Calderpeel and STEN Architecture have designed the project and Pegasus is the planning consultant. 

The Manchester College operator LTE Group is in the process of consolidating its disparate estate by disposing of some of its ageing assets and building several new facilities, including a £93m city centre campus on part of the former Boddington’s brewery site off Bury New Road close to the AO Arena.  

LTE sold a portion of the Boddingtons site to Clarion Housing Group in June, and the housing association’s development arm Latimer plans to build 442 flats across two buildings including a 20-plus storey tower.

As well as Northenden, LTE also plans to sell the 6.5-acre Fielden Campus off Barlow Moor Road in West Didsbury, which it says has the potential to be redeveloped into up to 50 homes.   

The eight-acre Nicholls Campus in Ardwick is another site LTE is looking to offload. The land is considered suitable for housing and is to be incorporated into plans to redevelop Ardwick Green 

LTE also plans to sell the Shena Simon Campus off Sackville Street. 

To date, LTE has sold sites in Moston, where housing association One Manchester is bringing forward 55 affordable homes, as well as its St John’s Campus on the edge of Spinningfields.    

The 39,000 sq ft building is earmarked for demolition by developer HBD, which is readying plans to redevelop the site into offices.
