Planning chiefs have recommended for approval developer Allied London’s high-rise Trinity Islands development in Manchester.

The scheme consists of a cluster of buildings,  two towers of 26 storeys, one of 37, another of 41 and what will be the tallest in Manchester at 67 storeys. A planning meeting due to be held next week is now expected to rubberstamp the ‘vertical village’ plan designed by architect Child Graddon Lewis.
