New development in Manchester to create affordable, eco-friendly housing

With the UK suffering from a lack of affordable housing, a regeneration is underway in South Manchester, and plans for a new development called Infusion have been unveiled.

Partnering in the scheme is Miller Homes, Manchester City Council and GB Building Solutions, and the idea is to provide community- and environmentally-friendly new housing to the area. It is funded by the Homes and Communities Agency.

The development will include 71 eco-rated homes, made up of seven new builds and 64 renovated and converted properties. The renovations have been “radically developed, with innovative floor plans and designs,” according to Easier Property.

The homes’ eco-friendly features include solar panels, water butts, thermal “skin” insulation and sun pipes. The variety of floor plans include two- three- and four-bedroom houses, and because of their sustainability they have low running costs, according to the report.

“This new development is part of the wider £17 million transformation of the Bowes Street neighbourhood which is transforming 155 properties in five streets. A shared equity scheme, under which the Council will retain the equity of up to 30 per cent of the property with the owner-occupier meeting the remainder will also help make these homes affordable,” said Councillor Paul Andrews, executive member for neighbourhood services.
