Development of the Month: Mayton Street, Openshaw by One Manchester

A JV North member has created an all-electric development of 21 homes as it continues working towards net zero targets.

The homes in Mayton Street, Openshaw by One Manchester sees 15 offered at social rent and six shared ownership properties.

Properties were constructed using a sustainable timber panellised system, manufactured off-site and include air-source heat pumps to heat hot-water.

The wider development also features solar-powered street lighting and electric vehicle charging points to every home to help reduce its carbon footprint and tenants’ fuel bills.

Building work for the £3.5 million Mayton Street development, which received £1.08 million Homes England grant bid for via JV North, began in August 2021 and was completed three months ahead of schedule.

One Manchester is playing a key role helping the city become net zero by 2038 at the latest.

Judy Noah, Director of Development at One Manchester, said: “One Manchester is committed to decarbonising its portfolio and this can be seen in our latest development on Mayton Street.

“We are no longer building new homes with gas boilers and we are making sure that these homes are exceptionally well-insulated so that they require minimal amounts of heating to keep them warm.

“We worked hard to ensure that the scheme maintained a significant element of well landscaped and inviting green space while also creating brilliant family homes with remarkably high-quality large gardens.

“We’re excited to see families move in and how they make this neighbourhood their own.”

One Manchester recently delivered the UK’s first true net zero carbon social homes.  To read more click here.
