Won in International Competition, the Holt Town master plan for East Manchester, led by Mick was one of the city’s most ambitious regeneration projects. The idea was to build a new 4500 home, family led neighbourhood in order to transform the east of the city. Linked to the centre of Manchester by Tram Link the master plan was designed to enable family living close to the heart of the city.
Mick led the design of this master plan including working with the clients stakeholders and funders. Mick also presented the master plan at CABE Design Review in London. Working with GVA the master plan received Outline Planning Permission in 2009. The largest Planning Permission ever awarded by the City of Manchester.
