This successful SPV has been in existence for over 15 years and has transformed a part of Manchester that was neglected into a thriving new community.

Like many SPVs, Miles Platting brings the best of the private and public sectors together. Using the commercial skills of Lovell to bring new tenures to an area which provides the financial support to create new affordable homes.
