Euan Kellie Property Solutions has gained planning approval from Salford City Council on behalf of Beis Menachem and Yeshivas Lubavitch Manchester, for the redevelopment of the Beis Menacham School at Park Lane, Broughton Park.  The site will be redeveloped to provide a new purpose-built facility, totalling 20,000sqft, for occupation by the OYY Boys School, and will include a new Synagogue and Yeshiva.  The new development, which will attract pupils from all over the world, is expected to open in autumn 2016.

The site is currently occupied by the OYY Girls School who, thanks to planning permission secured last April by Euan Kellie Property Solutions, will move into their new 10,000 sq ft facility on Bury New Road in autumn 2015.

Euan Kellie, director, Euan Kellie Property Solutions said: “Gaining planning permission for this important new community facility is the conclusion of a complex but rewarding project with Beis Menacham and the Yeshivas Lubavitch Manchester.  The new facilities being created are of international significance.”

Designed by Stockport architects Cartwright & Gross, with input from construction consultancy MJ Newton, the new school, Synagogue and Yeshiva will welcome up to 200 pupils in total.

The OYY Boys School will accommodate up to 80 students and it includes six classrooms, staff areas and offices, assembly/games hall, resource area and external play areas.  The school will have its own independent access and its own dedicated car park and drop-off point.

The Yeshiva includes a large study room (known as a Zal) which will seat 120 pupils.  It will also include a Mikvah (a ritual bath for use by students), changing facilities, laundry, kitchen and dining area, a Shuir (private study area) and library.  The Synagogue will comprise a large assembly room.

Gary Scorah, Commercial Properties Limited, acting on behalf of Beis Menachem and the Yeshivas Lubavitch Manchester, said: “We are thrilled Euan has secured planning permission for our new boys school, Synagogue and Yeshiva and we are looking forward to seeing the design by Cartwright & Gross come to fruition and welcoming our new pupils in the autumn of next year.”
