Manchester City Council has launched a consultation on a regeneration plan that will see 270 new homes built in Collyhurst.

Part of the Northern Gateway regeneration plan, the new housing will be split across two neighbourhoods, Collyhurst Village and South Collyhurst, and will include 130 council homes for social rent.

Proposals for Collyhurst Village also include a new park and as part of the consultation, local people will be asked to consider what should be included within this space.

The majority of the land required for the first phase of development is ready to be built on. However, 28 existing homes will have to be demolished for the wider proposals to be realized.

The Northern Gateway is a joint venture partnership between Manchester City Council and FEC (Far East Consortium), which will deliver a programme of regeneration with the potential for 15,000 new homes over the next 15 to 20 years.

It will include at least 3,000 affordable homes across seven new and emerging neighbourhoods.
