Green Acre

Work starts in Wythenshawe on WCHG’s greenest housing development to date - Green Acre.

Wythenshawe Community Housing Group (WCHG) has started work on its greenest housing development to date. The 65-week programme will see 56 new homes built on the former Manchester City Council owned Glendene Assessment Centre site, on Greenbrow Road in Wythenshawe.

The £9.2m mixed tenure development, supported by £2.13m of Homes England funding, will consist of 34 affordable rent and 22 shared ownership units; a mix of 2, 3 and 4 bedroomed homes and six bungalows, two of which will be designed specifically for wheelchair users. 48 of the units will be semi-detached and eight detached.

Each thoughtfully designed home will include air source heat pumps, photovoltaic panels and electric vehicle charging points (EVP), making them the most sustainable homes we have built with the lowest carbon footprints.

In consultation with our contractors P Casey & Co, the demolition phase is now underway with properties expected to be completed and ready to move into from Autumn 2023. The show home is planned to open in Summer 2023.

WCHG Executive Director of Development Andrea Lowman said: “We are delighted to be working with BTP Architects, The P Casey & Co and Garden City Homes on this exciting social housing development and look forward to bringing more much-needed affordable and energy efficient homes to this wonderful part of Greater Manchester”.

Project Manager Graham Morley added: “The current buildings on this site on Greenbrow Road have been derelict for a few years so it will be great to transform it into an attractive new housing development to meet and enhance the ever-growing needs of our community.”
