PWA Planning has secured planning consent on behalf of developer Mulbury for a housing development that will transfrom a derelict site in Levenshulme, Greater Manchester.

The site of the former Atlas Engineering Works in Chapel Street will be transformed into a development of 64 new homes after plans were approved by Manchester City Council on January 12.

David Wroe, of Mulbury, said: “This site provides an excellent opportunity to increase the supply of high-quality, sustainable family homes in Levenshulme. By regenerating a site that has fallen into disrepair, these homes will also have a significant positive impact on the local area, including a new street layout and landscaping.”

The scheme will see 22 three-bedroom homes, 14 four-bedroom homes and 28 two-bedroom apartments built on the site. Work on the new homes is scheduled to begin in spring 2017.

David Wroe added: “The development has been designed with respect for the existing homes in the area. They will be of a modern appearance with the use of red-facing brick and rendered gables, while the apartment block will acknowledge the architecture of the former Atlas Mill.”
