JV North member One Manchester has unveiled a £7.8m development scheme that will provide high quality affordable homes on derelict brownfield land.

Bank Bridge will help meet housing demand in the popular area of East Vale close to the cycle track and velodrome.

The development will rejuvenate this area of Clayton transforming it into a vibrant community with residents being helped on to the housing ladder.

Of the 66 homes, 40 will be made available as Rent to Buy and 26 houses offered as Shared Ownership.

The scheme sees a variety of three and four bedroom semi and detached homes being built all of which will have front and rear gardens and off-road parking.

Funding comes from One Manchester investing £5.9m and supported by Shared Ownership Affordable Homes Programme funding of £1.9m from Homes England secured by JV North.

Pauline Terry, Development Manager at One Manchester, said: “Bank Bridge is another example of our strong commitment to providing high-quality, affordable homes for the people of Manchester.

“The development is located adjacent to Clayton Vale green space with views overlooking Philips Park.

“Attention to the landscaping design has been a key focus for One Manchester, with the northern boundary of particular importance in terms of environmental impact.

“As part of our overall commitment to building a sustainable natural environment, we will deliver a landscaped, well-lit and overlooked walking and cycle link to the adjacent urban bike trails nearby.

“This will create a landscaped way-finder for local residents passing through the development and ensure the route increases local biodiversity.”

The development is expected to be completed in October 2021.
