Manchester Waters latest phase secures consent

Falconer Chester Hall’s ground-breaking designs for the latest phase of Peel’s Manchester Waters scheme have secured planning permission. Three blocks of 15, 17 and 19 storeys will bring 526 new homes to the market and will join two further properties currently under construction.

The development will offer 216 one-bed homes – including 55 studios – 274 two-beds, and 36 three-bed properties across the latest phase. The buildings are exclusively residential and for market sale and rent and will sit mid-way between Manchester city centre and Media City.

Meanwhile, Peel has confirmed that it will refresh the masterplan for the Pomona Island area of Salford’s historic docks, replacing an earlier one drawn up in 2008.

Trafford Council’s planning committee approved the latest proposal for the site at a meeting last night, which was recommended for approval by planning officers.

The three buildings follow a similar design to the two blocks currently under construction, featuring a cantilever supported by v-shaped columns, and rainscreen cladding. The blocks step up in height from the Salford Quays end of the islands in the direction of Manchester city centre.
