“The Woodhouse Lane development is bringing apartment style living to the area”
The development supports WCHG’s reduction in its carbon footprint, being the first of their general needs schemes to feature an electrical vehicle charging point as well as measures such as fob accessed electric gate parking and landscaping which introduces trees and planting to the development.
WCHG executive director of development, Andrea Lowman said, “Unfortunately the opening of Woodhouse Lane was delayed due to Covid19, but we are delighted to welcome the first residents in and help bring some much-needed apartments for affordable rent to Wythenshawe. This is a significant development milestone for WCHG because the electric vehicle charging point will help reduce our Carbon Footprint so that we can play our part in helping make Manchester a greener city and It also supports the National Housing Federation’s #HomesAtTheHeart campaign – that everyone deserves a safe, secure, comfortable place to call home.”
David Chilton, managing director, Rowlinson said, “The Woodhouse Lane development is bringing apartment style living to the area which, together with the in-built sustainability measures, really sets it apart.”
The scheme is another welcome addition to WCHG’s impressive development portfolio of building 836 new homes with a total investment of £100 million pounds for the Wythenshawe area.
