Planning approved for new Openshaw development

We’re proud to announce that planning approval for another exciting new development has been granted - this time to build 216 stylish new homes on the site of a former warehouse in Openshaw, Manchester.

The development, to be known as Edgefield Green, will create a community of 1 and 2-bedroom apartments and 2, 3 and 4-bed houses with a mix of terrace, semi-detached and detached properties with gardens and landscaped green spaces.

These new homes will bring more affordable good quality rental accommodation to Greater Manchester, along with a range of affordable homeownership options with 72 for sale through Shared Ownership, 72 for Private Rent and 72 for Affordable Rent.

Richard Jones, Director of Growth for Your Housing Group, said:

“It is fantastic to reach this significant point for Edgefield Green. Thanks to the support of Manchester City Council, these plans will allow us to transform the site of a disused warehouse into a wonderful, vibrant community in Openshaw, which has excellent links to Manchester, and is located close to parks and schools.”

“This development is yet another significant step forward in delivering our ambitious plans to build quality new housing across the region, to help improve access to affordable housing with various tenure options.” 

Cllr Suzanne Richards, Manchester City Council’s executive member for housing and regeneration, said:

“The demand for safe and secure housing remains high in Manchester and working in partnership with housing providers that are committed to developing quality homes is one of the ways we can ensure we can meet that demand. Project like this also bring back into use long-term disused plots of land, improving the area for the wider community and attract new residents to the neighbourhood.” 

The land on Edge Lane was purchased in 2019. Remediation work is underway, and a contractor is currently in the process of being appointed. Building work is due to start on site in early 2021.
