Peel L&P has submitted plans for 162 homes at Manchester Waters following a 10-day public consultation.

The proposals include the development of private rented apartments across two buildings and will form part of a wider Manchester Waters masterplan to regenerate the vacant brownfield site and bring much needed quality homes to the area.

In addition, the development will include associated public realm and benefit from excellent connectivity with Manchester City Centre, MediaCity and beyond because of its proximity to Cornbrook Metrolink.

The scheme will include a range of one, two and three bedroomed apartments, a communal terrace, courtyard garden, lounge and a waterfront aspect, overlooking both the Bridgewater Canal and the Manchester Ship Canal.

The proposals represent a significant investment into the local area and will create new jobs throughout the construction stage.

The new residents will increase footfall in local shops and service as well as increasing spend in the local economy.

James Whittaker, Peel L&P’s Executive Director of Development said: “This is the next step in our exciting plans for Manchester Waters.

“The feedback received from the public consultation has been valuable, with a number of existing residents in the area coming forward to say that they really enjoy living by the canal front in a location so close to Manchester city centre and transport links.”
