Miles Platting, Manchester
To view our full case study click here
The Miles Platting project is transforming a 264-acre inner-city housing estate in a previously neglected area of East Manchester into a thriving urban village of families and professionals.
The new neighbourhood will eventually be home to 1,520 refurbished council properties and around 1,000 new houses and apartments, delivered under license from Manchester City Council using an umbrella Private Finance Initiative (PFI) contract.
The apprenticeship project provides an opportunity for local people to learn the skills needed to work in the world of building and regeneration. Their hands-on training on local projects means that they contribute to improving their own local environment and the living conditions of local people, at the same time as learning skills that will enable them to earn a good living in the long term.
