Manchester homes plan approved

Regeneration specialist Harrow Estates has won planning approval for the development of 1,100 homes on a 17.58 ha former industrial site in Openshaw West, east Manchester.

Urban regeneration company New East Manchester will now work with Harrow Estates and architects Taylor Young to develop the master plan.

The residential-led scheme will also include offices, shops and leisure facilities with a central communal events space.

Construction on the first phase is scheduled for 2010.

The estate will be known as Dreyfus Village, named after French entrepreneur industrialist Charles Dreyfus who founded the Clayton Aniline Company on the site.
