In May 2019, Deansgate Councillors submitted a detailed objection to the proposals for proposed development of 129 apartments across two buildings on Great Ducie Street and Breslyn Street in our ward.

Our objection focuses on:

  • The proposed development amounts to overdevelopment
  • The proposed development is too tall and fails to meet the requirements of Core Strategy Policy EN 2
  • The proposed development would cause considerable overlooking and is not designed to give privacy both to its residents and neighbours in accordance with Policy H1 of the Core Strategy
  • The proposed development does not appropriately reflect the character of the area, failing to adhere to Policy EN 1 of the Core Strategy
  • The proposed development harms the setting of heritage assets and does not meet the requirements of Policy CC 9
  • The proposed development would strain local roads (failure to account for uber/Deliveroo in the documents)
  • The proposed development would harm the pedestrian environment on Breslyn Street
  • The proposed development would promote crime and anti-social behaviour
  • The proposed development does not address existing and future deficiencies in physical, social and green infrastructure in accordance with Policy H1
  • The proposed development does not provide any affordable housing and fails to meet Core Strategy Policy H8
