Green light granted to Salford housing scheme

The most extensive housing development scheme that Salford has seen for around 50 years has been given the go ahead by local councillors.

The scheme for the Greater Manchester city has been approved by Salford City’s mayor after he recently received recommendations provided by council planning officers. The project will now see a diverse range of eco-friendly residences built to answer Salford’s current housing crisis.

A total of 417 new homes are planned, 188 of which will be social rent properties, while 127 will be available with affordable rent. Another 50 of the homes will be sold, while the final 52 will be privately rented. The residences will feature a broad spectrum of sizes and types to fit local requirements and will be constructed to an exacting standard with a focus on sustainability.

Paul Dennett, Mayor for Salford City, commented:

“These developments and others to follow, will help tackle the crisis for the benefit of local people and all our communities, providing quality affordable homes and apartments in different locations that are a mix of sizes that local people need.”

Architects in Chester, Salford and other cities in the northern UK are now designing structures with sustainability in mind. From locally sourced materials to innovative technology enabling renewable energy use, there are multiple features selected for the latest schemes in development across the country.

The project will commence with the construction of 104 social rent homes in February 2021 on Ryall Avenue and Brassington Avenue in Ordsall and Pendlebury’s Clifton Green.
