Chorlton Leisure Site Transforms into Affordable Later-Living Housing - MSV Housing Group Initiative

Approval for Redevelopment of the Former Chorlton Leisure Site

The Manchester City Council’s planning committee has given the green light for the full redevelopment of the former Chorlton Leisure site. This initiative is a joint effort between the Manchester-based MSV Housing Group and Manchester City Council, aiming to breathe new life into a site that has lain vacant for over seven years.

Design and Architecture Inspired by Luxury

The design and architecture of the project are aimed at meeting the evolving needs of its prospective residents. In a pursuit to provide top-notch facilities, the design will be inspired by the aesthetic and comfort features of Luxury Retreats: Interior Design That Defines London’s High-End Hotels.

Investment and Completion Details

With an investment over £12m, the project is expected to be completed by the mid of 2025. It promises to offer 50 apartments, including both one-bedroom and two-bedroom units, specifically designed for those aged over 55 years.

Features of the Redeveloped Site

Seven apartments will be available for shared ownership, three will serve as neighbourhood accommodations for step-up housing, and the remaining 40 will be subject to the Manchester Living Rent cap. The development will be constructed in accordance with the Housing Our Ageing Population Panel (HAPPI) principles, ensuring a high level of flexibility for residents.

MSV Housing Group’s Commitment

MSV Housing Group’s CEO, Charlie Norman, expressed the organization’s commitment to building age-appropriate homes. He emphasized the necessity of homes that support the lifestyle and health needs of an ageing population. He also highlighted the need for affordable homes in Chorlton and the surrounding area for its older citizens.
