The Head of Planning and Development submitted a report setting out the details of planning application 118625/FO/2017 which was submitted to Manchester City Council in January 2018 and seeks full planning permission for the erection of a part 14 and part 15 storey building to form 280 residential apartments (Use Class C3a) with a 373 m2 ground floor commercial unit (Use Classes A1/A2/A3) with associated car parking, landscaping, public realm and other associated works following demolition of existing buildings and outline planning permission (with all matters reserved) for the erection of a part 11 and part 15 storey building to form a 154 bed hotel and 88 bed apart-hotel building (Use Class C1) together with a 140 m2 single storey retail building (Use Classes A1/A2/A3/A4/A5) with associated public realm, car parking, and other associated works following demolition of existing buildings.
