On behalf of a retained client, Alex Lewis of J A Lewis Development Consulting submits a full planning application (138712/FO/2023) for a Build to Rent scheme on land fronting Kingsway in Burnage, Manchester.

Located approximately 5km southeast of Manchester city centre, the site of the proposed scheme is conveniently situated adjacent to the Mauldeth Road Train Station, offering residents easy access to Manchester Piccadilly.

Set to deliver 112 Build to Rent homes – 78 single-family terraced townhouses and 34 apartments – in a mix of one-, two-, three- and four-bed homes, the development aims to provide a variety of accommodation types for all ages and household sizes. Most of the individual townhouses will each have a rear garden sitting within a carefully considered landscaped setting.

Although the location of the scheme is ideal for commuters, the developer is set to also provide housing for families. The provision of some one- and two-bedroom apartments are viewed as a significant benefit in the area, as it potentially allows for the release of family housing by residents looking to downsize.

The development will also use materials sympathetic to the local area – such as red brick to reflect the nearby architecture. This will be further reinforced with high quality hard and soft landscaping that will enhance the proposed development.

Internal access roads are proposed within the site, alongside 88 car parking bays. Built to a highly sustainable standard, the proposed layout features areas of public open space to the north and to the south.

“After a proactive and thoughtful pre app discussion with Manchester Council, we are delighted to submit this application. This is an exciting scheme in a great location, and it will help to deliver much needed new family housing to this part of south Manchester. We look forward to securing consent and helping to deliver the scheme with a Build to Rent operator.”
