The site extends to approximately 0.16 hectares and its address is Pellowe House, Francis Road, Withington, M20 4XP. The building has a long history of employment use and it was last occupied by ISS Group Limited, an electron optics business which relocated to Middleton (north Manchester) in 2020. The predominately one storey building is life expired and redevelopment of the site for a more appropriate use than industrial is long overdue.


There is current access to the site from Francis Road and Cotton Lane.


The local area is almost entirely residential in character. The only other commercial uses nearby are Kingslea House (currently occupied by the Greater Manchester Mental Health NHS Foundation Trust) and a number of retail businesses located at the crossroad junction of Francis Road, Cotton Lane, and Heathside Road.
