Construction News Image
A total of £20 million funding has been allocated for the regeneration of Wythenshawe town centre in Manchester.

Initially unsuccessful in the previous rounds of bidding, the funding has been agreed by the Department of Levelling Up, Homes and Communities (DLUHC) as part of the third round of the national funding – honouring the progress already made on the plan for Wythenshawe Civic with reference to the high quality of the proposed project and the fact that it is ready to deliver.

Manchester Council is currently going through a formal tender process to find a joint venture partner that will drive the ‘once-in-a-generation' programme of investment over the next 10 to 15years.

The opportunity is to transform the 1970s shopping centre and surrounding areas through an aspirational project that will deliver a new public square, new shops, net zero carbon commercial, community and cultural space, and around 1,600 new homes built on Council-owned land. The housing will be a mix of tenures including affordable rent and shared ownership options.
