New plans for Moss Side


A large-scale residential scheme for 258 new homes on the former Stagecoach site at Moss Side has been submitted for planning.

The cleared six-acre site fronts Princess Parkway and neighbours the successful Bowes Street regeneration area.

The proposal is from Rowlinsons Constructions, which won the bid for the site, with Buttress Architects designing two and three storey modern terraces of 54 family homes, alongside 204 one to three bedroom apartments, 72 of which will be for retirement living.

Plans for a community health hub have also been lodged as part of the planning application.

David Chilton, Director of Development at Rowlinsons Constructions, said: “By increasing the choice of housing in the area we are also aiming to cater to the needs of Manchester’s growing population by encouraging more families to settle in Moss Side.”

The site was marketed through Manchester Place and chief executive Paul Beardmore said: “It is good to see plans come forward for this key site and the new homes will help meet demand and support the on-going regeneration of the area.”
