Key Project Information
- In the 1960s, Hattersley became the site for a new housing estate, built by Manchester City Council to rehouse people from the housing clearance areas of East Manchester. Over time it saw significant decline and dramatic reductions in population levels, leaving many properties vacant, and leading to their subsequent demolition. This left areas of previously developed land and unmanaged areas of open space.
- In April 2005, Manchester City Council tenants in Hattersley voted to switch their tenancies to a registered social landlord, Peak Valley Housing Group. The stock transfer signalled the start of a £40 million seven-year improvement programme for the estate, part of an overall physical development programme to transform it with combined public and private investment in the region of £250 million.
- The wider regeneration programme being undertaken in Hattersley includes the building of approximately 830 private homes, commercial and retail units, and community facilities. Barratt Homes are bringing forward the residential element of the regeneration programme and a number of homes have been completed or are under construction.
We sought to re-establish outline planning permission for several of the later phases of the development so that the total investment and masterplan for the area could be realised. The work involved managing and coordinating the submission of twelve planning applications for outline permission for a combined total of 331 dwellings
The new homes in Hattersely provide a range of 2, 3 and 4 bedroom homes suitable for first-time buyers and growing families.
