Southway Housing Trust delivers flats for affordable rent on site of former Ladybarn Social Club in South Manchester

The site of the former Ladybarn Social Club in South Manchester, which had been empty since 2013, has been transformed to create 24 homes for affordable rent.

Southway Housing officially opened Hayward Court following a city-wide campaign to address Manchester’s housing crisis and increase affordable housing.

 

The £2.1 million development on Beverly Road, named in honour of fallen soldiers from Ladybarn, comprises 18 one-bedroom and eight two-bedroom flats across three buildings, with on-site car parking and landscaping.

 

On average Southway receives 180 bids for every rental property and new research has identified housing as a top priority for voters in Greater Manchester, with 40% of voters in the city region believing the new Mayor should prioritise plans for new housing in the first 100 days of office.

 

Hayward Court is part of an expanding programme of residential development across South Manchester and the surrounding areas. It is the fifth scheme delivered in the area by Southway Housing Trust and its partners over the last two years.

 

Duncan Smith, director of business and growth for Southway Housing said: “We’re really proud of Hayward Court, and developments like these not only provide much needed housing, but help regenerate entire areas too. It is crucial to south Manchester that we keep on going with our ambitious programme of residential development in the local and surrounding areas.”
