Plans in for 159 homes at Manchester Waters scheme

Construction & Build

Waterside regeneration specialists Peel Waters, formerly called Peel L&P, has submitted plans to create 159 homes across two blocks at Manchester Waters.

The two planned buildings will overlook both The Bridgewater Canal and The Manchester Ship Canals giving every resident a home with a waterfront view.

As part of the proposals, Peel will be making a contribution equivalent to 20% affordable housing within Trafford and a further contribution will be made towards improving green spaces in the local area.

Sustainability is at the heart of the design and a fabric first approach will be used to reduce carbon emissions.

Alongside this, heat pumps and solar panels will generate energy on site and will be complemented by a heat recovery system, making the buildings highly efficient.

Proposed build-to-rent homes form part of a wider Manchester Waters masterplan to regenerate the brownfield site

The site has been largely vacant for over 20 years and the proposals will deliver a high-quality scheme, transforming the area into a sustainable, mixed-use community.

James Whittaker Executive Director for Peel Waters said: “This is the next exciting step in our regeneration plans for Manchester Waters.

“Our proposed homes will celebrate their waterfront location as well as delivering much-needed new, sustainable, quality housing in the area in addition to providing the next section of new improved pedestrian and cycle links between Manchester and MediaCity.”
