The Church Inn pub site on Cambridge Street is a vacant site within the Manchester Metropolitan University campus boundary and just a five-minute walk from the University of Manchester, making it an ideal location for a well-managed student accommodation development.
The Church Inn pub closed in 2016 after the owners were unable to source new management and has now been left vacant.
The vacant site has attracted anti-social behaviour, including drug taking and vandalism. This type of behaviour is not welcome in the local community and poses local safety concerns. The redevelopment of the site into a modern, well-maintained and managed student accommodation development will significantly improve the look and feel of the site.
