The derelict site of a former engineering works in Levenshulme will be transformed into a development of 64 new homes after plans were approved by Manchester City Council today (Jan 12).

David Wroe, of Mulbury, said: “This site provides an excellent opportunity to increase the supply of high-quality, sustainable family homes in Levenshulme.
