At Northwards, we do lots of work to make your homes warm, decent and attractive.

That’s why we’re spending more than £22million on improving properties across north Manchester this year.

Our improvement programme is funded by Manchester City Council – they approve what we can spend on our homes each year.

Highlights

This year we will be:

  • cladding and replacing windows in Clifford Lamb Court in Charlestown at a cost of £1m. The block has just benefitted from a ground source heat pump, and this work will help keep tenants’ heating costs low
  • replacing roofs across the Northwards area, including the Riverdale estate and Cheetham Hill
  • refurbishing some of the lifts in multi-storey blocks

Dam Head Flats

We’re also doing a major improvement programme to the Dam Head flats in Blackley.

The flats will have a full re-roof, while the brickworks will be repaired and rendered outside. They’ll have new signage and an upgrading of the communal area, including low energy lighting. See the photo above for an artist's impression.

We’re also hoping to bring some of the disused flats back into use.
