Wythenshawe is Manchester’s original garden city – built on the principles of being ‘close to town and country’ and this remains true today. Only seven miles from Manchester’s City Centre but surrounded by South Manchester’s most affluent suburbs and directly linked to the Cheshire countryside. Wythenshawe’s population density is 24.9 people per hectare, compared to the city’s 39.1 people per hectare (that’s 57% more space per person).
Homes in Wythenshawe come in all shapes and sizes from large family homes to brand new apartments and townhouses. Almost every house in Wythenshawe has a garden; many of the flats do too.
Private housing accounts for over 52% of Wythenshawe’s total housing stock and over 3,000 new homes have been built in the last 10 years, adding to the availability and variety of private sector housing in the area for existing residents and newcomers.
Wythenshawe Community Housing Group is the housing trust responsible for managing a combined stock of almost 14,000 properties, providing homes to more than 20,000 people across Wythenshawe.
