Development of 130 dwellings on a vacant Industrial SSSI Site, incorporating two reservoirs in North Manchester
Sitting on a unique site in North Manchester; the industrial units had become uneconomical to continue in operation. The surrounding site whilst classified as an SSSI had become overgrown and derelict. The proposals sought to enhance the existing reservoir whilst creating a new vehicular access and greater public penetration into the site. The proposals aimed to create a range of housing catering for the requirements of the community. Community Consultation Excercise
