CEEQUAL Excellent (76.9%) – Interim Client & Design Award
Version 5, Dec 2014 | Manchester, UK
The Pennington Wharf site is built on land formerly occupied by Bickershaw colliery, which closed in 1992. The HCA has spent £18m carrying out large scale remediation and infrastructure works, which has created a platform for developers. The development will create 471 high quality, sustainable and spacious 2, 3 and 4 bedroom homes over next 8 years, as well as a range of community buildings, a superb marina, cafe, community centre, office and plans for a family pub and shop.
In January 2015, a press release about this project was published on the gov.uk website.
