City South Manchester Housing Trust

Between May 2010 and June 2013 BCA Landscape helped City South Manchester Housing Trust to deliver a £3.3million programme of environmental improvements to across 11 different neighbourhoods.

Working closely with residents, City South neighbourhood officers, local police and planning officers, the project has attempted to resolve issues of under-used and hard to maintain spaces, which in many cases were only used for anti-social behaviour and were seen as liabilities, rather than assets.

BCA Landscape produced an initial conceptual strategy and then implemented this over 18 months.  We organised topographic surveys, handled all community consultation, established a framework of contractors, obtained all necessary permissions, invited tenders, administered all 11 contracts on site simultaneously, designed artworks across all neighbourhoods and organised on-going maintenance regimes.
