Lovell Homes’ 264-acre Manchester Housing Development Granted Planning Permission

Miles Platting in East Manchester – a landmark 264-acre regeneration project – has been given planning permission for its final phase.

The project – developed by national house-builder Lovell Homes – will see its final 28 homes delivered by Saxon Square for open market. The selection of two, three and four bed homes will be aimed at families and young professionals alike.

The Miles Platting Housing Village Development

The Platting Village development – a depressed inner-city housing site, which started work in 2007 in partnership with Manchester City Council – has been delivered across ten phases, creating an award-winning thriving urban village. This included the comprehensive refurbishment of 1,520 existing council properties and the creation of more than 650 new-build family homes and apartments.

Lee Sale, regional managing director at Lovell, said: “Miles Platting is a major regeneration project and, having been building there since 2007, it is also our longest standing site. Saxon Square is a therefore culmination of 15 years of hard work by the team, so it is a historic day to secure planning for our final development and definitely marks the end of an era.

“We are very much part of the East Manchester community and having already added new homes, landscaped public spaces, multiple children’s play areas, improved pedestrian links and planted of hundreds of trees into the various green spaces, we’re proud to be leaving a strong legacy behind.

“There is very limited housing stock in this part of Manchester, with the market dominated by apartments rather than houses – as a result we’ve had many repeat buyers on each phase, which is fantastic to see. We’re looking forward to getting the first spade in the ground and bringing this special development to market.”

Miles Platting is a 15-year comprehensive regeneration programme transforming the 264-acre industrial site and inner-city housing estate in East Manchester into a thriving urban village of families and professionals.

Delivered in partnership with Manchester City Council as part of the Renaissance Consortium – formed of Lovell Partnerships, Adactus HA, Dexia and Morgan Sindall – the new housing is interspersed with existing properties across the estate, allowing the new schemes to integrate with the existing community and improving the general area.

Saxon Square has an anticipated start on site of early December, with main groundwork beginning in January. The duration of the project is estimated at 12 months, with house prices starting from £270,000.
