Grey Mare Lane Estate

Important information regarding the Grey Mare Lane Estate - 25th March

Due to the on-going situation with COVID-19, also known as coronavirus, our board and our Chief Executive have taken the difficult decision to pause all regeneration work on the Grey Mare Lane estate.

We are about to enter a regeneration stage which requires a lot of detailed consultation with you, our residents, and our stakeholders. Given the government’s guidance on remaining at home and practising social distancing, properly consulting with people is going to be difficult.

This decision has not been taken lightly, but the health, safety and wellbeing of our customers and colleagues is the most important thing to us.

To protect our customers and our colleagues, we will now be completing emergency repairs only. All routine appointments will be rescheduled for a later date. To book an emergency repair, please call our contact centre on 0330 355 1000

We understand that some residents may be worried about paying their rent, but please be assured that we will not be pursuing evictions during this period and we will continue to support you through our One Money team if you are having any financial difficulties.

We have also taken the decision to close all our offices and postpone any events or workshops we have planned. The premises affected are:

  • Lovell House
  • The Tesco Hub in Gorton
  • Eastlands House
  • The Workshop in Moss Side
  • The Aquarius Centre

There are also a number of premises that we offer services from, which are now closed. These are:

  • The Place at Platt Lane
  • All Community Grocers
  • S4B Housing
  • The Wells Centre
  • Cornbrook Community Shop
  • The Grange

We will still be carrying out customer appointments by telephone wherever possible, and you can still get in touch with us using our web form, our web chat or by calling customer services on 0330 355 1000.

If you’re currently self-isolating, or have tested positive for coronavirus, please let a member of our team know so we can make sure we support you appropriately.

You can find all the latest information on our services, and all the support you can receive on our dedicated coronavirus hub.


Welcome to the Grey Mare Lane Estate page


Here, you will find all the latest information on our plans to regenerate the Grey Mare Lane Estate and the surrounding areas.

Our initial plans for the area include the building of approximately 300 new homes. Replacement homes will be built for residents affected by demolition, along with a number of additional mix tenure homes such as shared ownership. 

The project involves improvements to remaining homes to help make them more energy efficient and enhance the external appearance. We will also look to improve the local amenities around the estate, alongside alleyways and open spaces.  

We are committed to involving residents every step of the way, we will work closely with the community to ensure they have an input into future plans and designs for the estate.

One Manchester places high importance on social value; creating employment opportunities for local people and delivering healthy, happy communities and making this area a great place to live.

This page will be continually updated to ensure all residents and stakeholders remain informed about the progress of the estate. Should you wish to discuss further please speak to a member of the Grey Mare Lane Estate team, here are the details you need:
