Manchester City Council’s planning committee has approved the planning application for a full redevelopment of the former Chorlton Leisure site in the UK.

The affordable later-living housing scheme is a collaborative effort between Manchester-based MSV Housing Group and Manchester City Council. It aims to revitalise a site that has remained vacant for over seven years.

The project is anticipated to conclude in mid-2025 and will involve an investment exceeding £12m.

The upcoming project aims to offer 50 apartments, consisting of both one-bedroom and two-bedroom units, for those aged over 55 years.  

Seven apartments will be available for shared ownership, three will serve as neighbourhood accommodations for step-up housing, and the remaining 40 will be subject to the Manchester Living Rent cap.

Collaborating with Manchester architects Buttress, the development will be constructed in accordance with the Housing Our Ageing Population Panel (HAPPI) principles.

MSV Housing Group chief executive Charlie Norman said: “Our pledge to build age-appropriate homes for every stage in life remains as firm as ever, and ensuring an ageing population has a home that supports their lifestyle and health needs is a must.

“Chorlton and the surrounding area needs affordable homes to rent for its older citizens and we are proud to be the organisation that will deliver a highly sustainable development of the highest calibre and green credentials.”
