The Woodlands

JV North member Wythenshawe Community Housing Group has completed a 130-home mixed tenure scheme bringing a brownfield site back into use.

Named ‘The Woodlands’, the £11.7 million scheme was built in Greenbrow Road in the Newall Green district of the town.

Homes England provided £1.84 million of grant bid by Wythenshawe Community Housing Group via JV North.

The development follows quickly in the footsteps of ‘Village 135’ – a multi award-winning luxury apartment scheme with 24-hour extra care support.

Built by contractor Lovell, The Woodlands sees 52 houses for sale and shared ownership and 78 apartments for affordable rent.

A range of environmentally-friendly features are built into the homes with high-efficiency boilers, high-specification floor and cavity insulation and photovoltaic solar panels installed to help residents save on fuel bills and Wythenshawe Community Housing Group reduce further its carbon footprint.

All units have parking areas and landscaped gardens with new trees and bushes planted.

The site is in a prime location with close proximity to local businesses, transport links and nearby Milky Button Park.
