New housing development for West Gorton
A major new masterplan for housing development in West Gorton will see over 1,000 new homes being built over the next 10 years.
The aim is to transform West Gorton into an attractive neighbourhood that will be an exemplar of sustainable living and urban planning in the UK.
Just one and a half miles from Manchester city centre, the area covered by the new masterplan features a mix of housing, shops and local services with the aim of creating a sustainable community and the right conditions for an integrated and successful family neighbourhood. There will also be a park and a community hub including a new health centre.
The regeneration work, phased over 10 years, will be undertaken by New East Manchester together with Manchester City Council, the Homes and Communities Agency and housing association, Guinness Northern Counties.
