Team named for Stockport Town Centre West

Optimised Environments has been appointed to work alongside Cushman & Wakefield and WSP on the creation of a masterplan for 3,000 homes to the west of Stockport town centre. The strategic regeneration framework is part of work to support the creation of the town’s Mayoral Development Corporation as announced by Mayor Andy Burnham earlier this month, focusing development on the 130 acres of brownfield land to the west of the town. According to Cushman & Wakefield, the vision is to “establish the area as Greater Manchester’s newest, greenest, and coolest affordable urban neighbourhood” which would become “the jewel in the crown” of the City Region. The council had previously worked with CBRE to draw up a feasibility study for the establishment of an MDC, while the consultant had also contributed towards the housing proposals in a report published in April last year. The proposal to establish the MDC is currently out to public consultation, while the draft framework will be consulted on by Stockport Council in spring 2019.

Cllr Kate Butler, Stockport Council’s cabinet member for economy and regeneration said: “Stockport’s Town Centre West is an exceptionally well-connected area with tremendous regeneration potential. We need to bring new homes into Stockport for the future while doing all we can to protect our Borough’s green spaces. The Strategic Regeneration Framework for Town Centre West is a key part of that approach and will set out an ambitious vision for how we can work together with landowners, developers and investors, the Greater Manchester Mayor, Homes England, and the wider public and private sectors to help the area reach its potential.”

Caroline Baker, head of Cushman & Wakefield’s Manchester Office who is leading the consultants team said: “The Council has already led the way in the transformation of the town’s office and leisure offer and we are thrilled to be supporting them now to focus on transforming the residential offer.”

renovation opportunity in sk2

Gascoigne Halman Estate Agents have for sale in Offerton a three bedroom, semi detached property with masses of potential!

From the photos available on Rightmove and also the description its clear the property is in need of some refurbishment & modernisation. It looks like you may have to redecorate & re carpet through out and i would imagine the bathroom and kitchen may need replacing due to the lack of photos. Once refurbished to a good standard i would expect to let this property for £850 pcm which would give you a potential yield of 7.56% (this would of course vary depending on how much you spent on the refurbishment) https://www.rightmove.co.uk/property-for-sale/property-59697783.html

buy to let in central stockport

If your searching for an affordable investment in a central location then look no further. Property Genius have a two bedroom, mid terrace property on the market which reduced in price to £115,000 on 17th January.

There is currently a tenant in situ with a current rental figure of £600 pcm, this would give you a yield of 6.26%. If the property became vacant it may be worth spending a small amount of time and money to take it to the next level. I would recommend decorating throughout making the property seem more neutral and also modernising the kitchen and bathroom where possible without completing replacing. I think this work if done correctly would allow a rental figure of £650 pcm providing a yield of 6.78% which is fantastic. Please give me a call if you would like to discuss this opportunity further or if you would like any buy to let related advice; 0161 474 8668. https://www.rightmove.co.uk/property-for-sale/property-67567696.html
