Redevelopment Consultation

For the Chorlton Shopping Centre in South Manchester

The second stage of public consultation on our plans to redevelop the Chorlton Shopping Centre site in south Manchester is now underway.

Following significant input from the local community, architects Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios and landscape architects Randall Thorp, have designed a new masterplan for the site that will transform Barlow Moor Road into a bustling shopping street and deliver a diverse mix of around 200 new homes.

Based on the Development Framework adopted by Manchester City Council in 2017, the revised scheme would also bring improvements to green spaces with new planting across the site to improve biodiversity and the creation of a linear park.

The plans would see Barlow Moor Road transformed with flexible commercial space suitable for a range of operators at street level and apartments above. Mature trees would be retained with improved planting to create opportunities for outdoor seating.

The new homes would include one, two and three bedroom apartments and duplexes all with balconies and access to communal residential gardens, and a street of town houses with bay windows and brick detailing to reflect the existing neighbourhood.

Around 20% of the homes will be available through a Registered Provider for rent or shared ownership.

Whilst the route from Nicolas Road to Barlow Moor Road would remain open, it is planned for the junction between Nicolas Road and Manchester Road to be closed to vehicles. This would create space for lush new planting, as well as pedestrian-first walkable streets.

Public consultation drop-in events with the opportunity to discuss plans with the full team will be held in a vacant unit opposite Timpsons in the shopping precinct on the following days:
Saturday 18 November: 10am – 4pm
Tuesday 21 November: 12pm – 6pm

Follow-up sessions will also be available on:
Friday 24 November: 10am – 4pm
Thursday 30 November: 10am-4pm
Monday 4 December: 10am – 4pm
