Manchester Council

Abstract

Developed by housing provider One Manchester working in partnership with the Council using Council-owned land, the development is a landmark for sustainability in the social housing sector – and supports the Council’s target for Manchester to become a zero-carbon city by 2038.

The 100% social housing development has delivered a total of 22 two and three-bed homes for social rent on Blackrock Street in Beswick, east Manchester which have been built to low carbon standards, including two which are full net-zero carbon – a pilot build to test the potential of zero-carbon social housing for the future.
