Galliford Try's £14m Manchester scheme approved

Galliford Try Partnerships has been given the green light for a £14.2m residential scheme in Manchester.

The development on Princess Road will see 105 two-bedroom apartments constructed for sale and private rent, with the building also featuring a roof garden.

Galliford Try submitted a planning application to Manchester City Council in June, with the scheme expected to start in early 2018 and complete by summer 2019.

The project is being carried out by the contractor and housebuilder’s North West Partnerships arm, which works with the Homes and Communities Agency, local authorities and housing associations, as well as developing its own projects.

Galliford Try Partnerships North West managing director Brendan Blythe said: “While still respecting the local character of the neighbourhood, this scheme will bring exciting, modern architecture to the area.”

Last month the group’s partnerships and regeneration business posted a 10 per cent increase in operating profit to £330.2m for the year ending 30 June 2017.

The contractor expected revenue for the division to almost double over the next four years to £650m.
