Peel L&P joined forces with Manchester-based charity, Embassy, and CAPITAL & CENTRIC as well as a pro bono team across the Manchester business community to provide up to 40 new permanent modular homes.
The charity is looking to transform a derelict site below the railway arches between the Bridgewater Canal and River Irwell, currently owned by Peel L&P, into a housing-led community with lots of communal and green space, mini allotments to grow vegetables and a multi-use sports area.
James Whittaker, Executive Director of Development at Peel L&P said: “Following the public consultation, it’s fantastic to see this special project move forward into planning stages. With the support from the local business community, our vision to help reduce Manchester’s homelessness by transforming our land beneath some railway arches in the city into much needed housing for the homeless is one step closer to becoming reality.”
