This new development on the junction of Brownley Road and Hollyhedge Road is a tremendous win for WCHG and the people of Wythenshawe. The Community Hub with a café/Bistro will provide a focal point for scheme residents and the local community and the development will be set in landscaped sensory gardens. The scheme has been designed to achieve full mobility and access under Lifetime Homes for all residents ensuring the living spaces are flexible in design and are a generous size to meet the needs of the residents."
