Developers have signed a section 106 agreement with Manchester council allowing the final approval of the 4,300-home Holt Town regeneration scheme east of the city centre.

Developer Cibitas says the scheme is the largest planning application ever to have been issued by the council, with the section 106 deal securing the construction of public realm, bridges and a primary school for the area. The project team includes EDAW, Arup, Davis Langdon, Mace and Studio Egret West.
