Welcome to the forums!

I'm afraid it's a silly and tedious process, but I'll aid you along.

You need to upload your photo(s) to an image uploader first. I reccommend either Flickr or Tinypic. You don't need to sign up to Tinypic, but it's a pain in the arse sometimes with the Catchpa key and things. Flickr is probably easier, especially if you already have an account.

Once you've uploaded your photo to one of these sites, you need to look for the "URL for forums or message boards" or words to that effect. Copy this link and then paste it in here; WITH these two 'image tags' at either side. For example;

[IMG] image URL here [/IMG]

It's important you use the image tags else it won't display the image on here.


Also, if you're posting things about the apartments on Bengal St, it'd be best to post them in this thread, which is the dedicated thread for the apartments on Bengal St.

Hope you enjoy SSC!

Interesting little demo app,

101249/CC/2012/N1 - Application for Conservation Area Consent for Demolition of existing single storey link building between St. Michaels Church and Presbytery

Quote:
Progressing the Development Opportunities

(i) St Michaels Church:

Refurbishment and fit out works are planned for early 2013 by the HCA. Once works are complete, the building is to be offered to the Friends of St Michaels community group on a pepper corn rental. The community have assembled a business plan for operating the premises and this is being further strengthened by the City Council’s Regeneration Team.

(ii) The former Presbytery Site

A development brief and marketing brochure have been prepared for this site by the HCA and Manchester City Council, and will be taken out to the market during early 2013. The HCA and Council will jointly select a preferred developer for the site later in 2013, for which full planning permission for residential properties will be pursued separately.

The demolition of the linking building will provide a clear boundary between the two sites enabling their development to commence independently.

More Ancoats info, couple of mentions of a MIF production to be staged there,

2013 is set to be a turning point in Ancoats. A new cafe has just opened on the ground floor of the stunning Ice Plant building. As a cycle cafe, it has secure bicycle parking next to The Cutting Room Square and facilities allowing cyclists to get showered and changed. In the spring, the Halle Orchestra will make St Peter's Church its second home for rehearsals and community events. Jackie said: “The Summer is set to be really exciting as The Manchester International Festival will be using Ancoats as a venue.

A performance of Macbeth with Sir Kenneth Branagh in the leading role marks the actor's return to the Shakespearean stage after a break of decade. Rumour has it that this show might take place at the renovated former church of St Peter's in Ancoats.

Not sure if this has been clocked but there is a Mace general store as well as the coffee shop now open facing on to Cutting Room Square.

Also FWIW the Bengal St apartments now seem to have completed. The road is now reopen to traffic in a ny case.

Stalled scheme to start with Dubai cash
30th January 2013

WORK on a stalled residential block with 70 flats in Manchester's Ancoats is expected to start soon after a Dubai investor bought it off-plan for £7m.

Manchester architect Hodder + Partners, also the agent on the scheme, has applied for a year's extension to the planning consent.

A letter from Hodder says Dublin-based Bennett Construction sold the site "without profit" after failing to secure the required funds.

Associated documents show the the unnamed investor paid £1.87m for the plot, between Great Ancoats Street and Houldsworth Street, and it will cost £4.6m to build.

Cheadle Hulme-based builder Ladson has been hired to build the 12-storey block and expects to make nearly £600,000 on the deal, a net margin of 8.3%.

Ladson hopes to have the flats finished by early next year. The firm could not be reached for comment.

Town Centre Securities plans Ancoats conversion
30th January 2013

PROPERTY Group Town Centre Securities is planning to convert AV Roe's early Manchester aircraft factory into offices.

It has submitted a planning application for the work at the grade II-listed Brownsfield Mill, where AV Roe built bi-planes for the First World War.

Leeds-based Town Centre declined to discuss its plans but it has previously said the eight-storey building, fronting Great Ancoats Street and the Rochdale Canal, could offer a mix of leisure and retail space with 50,000 sq ft of offices.

The application is for a change of use and listed building consent.

The steam-powered mill was built in 1825 and AV Roe moved in in 1910 as the world's first company registered solely as a manufacturer of airfraft.

It was later used as a warehouse and has been dormant in recent years.

Is this just works to the existing building or is there a new build element to sit alongside it? Those hoardings must have been there for 6 years or more

This has been approved, for a 1 year extension. Will have to see if they start on site per what the app suggests.

I know that area. Despite all the new buildings, do you know the most attractive and heart-warming building? Ancoats Dispensary.

It says a lot for 21st century when we are quite happy to demolish our heritage and a building which could have been used as a community hub. East Manchester is still a terribly fractured post-industrial area.

Looks like the HCA is spending some money on works to 32-34 George Leigh St (Morning Star Hostel & St Michael’s School), "to prevent further deterioration of the buildings".

Also a tender out at the moment for refurb works to St. Michael's itself (£400k+), closing date today.
Quote:
The HCA is currently in discussion with a local community group to take on the management and operation of the building as a community facility. Therefore, works are required to ensure that the building can be passed to the group in a reasonable condition, fully discharging the HCA’s duty of care.
