Infill site in Manchester given planning consent

We are pleased to announce that the plans for the residential scheme on Red Lion Street in Manchester have now been given consent. Idom Merebrook’s Manchester M&E team carried out the RIBA Stage 3 Building Services design as part of the planning application, and we also produced the SUDS report for the project.

The article by Place North West (below) describes the build in more detail.

Plans for a residential scheme on an infill site bordered by Red Lion Street, Church Street and Union Street in the Northern Quarter have been granted consent.

The 38-apartment scheme, varying in height between three, five, seven, eight and 11 storeys, was considered at November’s committee but deferred for a site visit. Plans were initially submitted in February but were reworked following consultations.

The front of the former Bull’s Head pub will be restored and used as an entrance onto Union Street for two duplex flats. Above the façade, the rest of the building has been set back by 3.6m to limit visual impact at street level.

The scheme, designed by Neil Collins Home Architects, also includes 2,000 sq ft of commercial space.
The plans were submitted by a special purpose vehicle for the scheme, Red Lion Street. According to Companies House, the directors are Marc Parry and Barbara Kahan. Paul Butler Associates advised on planning.
