Newton Heath
The site is home to a YES Group warehouse set for demolition

One Manchester plots Newton Heath scheme

Housing provider One Manchester has submitted plans for a 139-home development on Oldham Road, Manchester.

The 2.7-acre site is split into two. The western plot, the larger of the two and flanked by Dulverton Street, covers 81,000 sq ft while the eastern plot, off Droylsden Road, covers 44,000 sq ft.

The two plots are dissected by Newton Street, at the end of which is the grade-two listed Newton Silk Mill.

The plans propose the demolition of the existing YES Group building, on the western site, and the erection of 100 apartments and 39 townhouses.

The apartments will be a mix of one and two-bedroom offers while the houses will be a mix of two and three bedrooms.

The scheme will vary between two and six storeys in height.

The project team includes TP Bennett as architect, TPM as landscape architect and Euan Kellie Property Solutions as planner.

Curtins has conducted the flood risk assessment as well as advising on transport and travel.

The Hodder & Partners HiLux 114-apartment scheme, which incorporates Rosedale House, is situated to the west of the proposed development.

One Manchester was formed from a merger between two of Manchester’s largest housing associations – City South and Eastlands Homes – in 2015. It owns and manages more than 12,000 homes in central, south and east Manchester, according to its website.

L2 Property, as co-owner of the site, is the joint-applicant for the project.

No way I live near to all this and the area is over flowing what’s already here needs a massive makeover fly tripping sort parking sorted

Hoping you don’t become greedy and charge in a cheap area where we need to have social prices reasonable for all.

Climate change will mean the area will be 10 feet under water before a single brick is laid at the Hilux scheme. It was clearly a ridiculous attempt to get overseas investors to part with money for an off plan development.

Newton Heath has a lot of potential. A proper high street, a decent park and some good housing stock towards Clayton Bridge.

I see Manchester is turning into London know one wants to live there prices are ridiculous but nice concrete jungle if you like that sort of thing

Will be good to see this area developed, particularly the old shopping centre which has been totally vacated and scaffolded for around 2 years now with no progress. Serious consideration needs to be given to how new traffic will merge onto Oldham Road. Also it would be nice if some money was spent smartening up the high street and canal. And across Manchester dealing with a chronic litter problem.

You do realise that it is a canal that is nearby not a river? This isn’t a flood risk area regardless of climate change

What happens to the people in the houses you will demolish?

They’re all coming to your house, get the sofa bed ready and some spare toothbrushes

Collyhurst/Monsall/Harpurhey needs more investment like this. It is the most deprived area of Manchester and there seems to be zero investment or development. It was going to get a Newton heath/Ancoats type redevelopment but the plans were cancelled. The whole place looks like a dump

Anonymous is so right. That area around Rochdale Road is embarrassing.

This is good news for Newton Heath where I have lived for 70 years. We have a problem where a company in Singapore have bought large terraced family houses and tried to turn them into lodging houses and bed sits. Some of the tenants have been evicted from social housing after 1 months notice to behave. They move into the private sector and neighbours have anti social behaviour around them.
