Countryside finalises latest plans for New Broughton
Countryside Properties is preparing to submit detailed planning applications for the third and fourth phases of its £500m residential regeneration project in Lower Broughton, Salford.
Public consultation has closed on the latest phases of New Broughton, which will comprise 864 apartments and houses. Detailed planning applications will be submitted before the end of the year.
Building work on the 37 houses and 160 flats in phase one is now complete and work has recently started on site on phase two of 160 apartments and 37 houses.
Countryside Properties, in partnership with Salford City Council, is responsible for transforming 185 acres of Lower Broughton by delivering over 3,500 mixed-tenure homes alongside a full range of community facilities including shops, leisure, employment, education and training over the next 15 years. The regeneration scheme will invest just over £500m in the area.
All residents directly involved in the next two phases were invited to attend consultation events held in Lower Broughton, to share their thoughts on the next stages of the development. Around 50 people attended the events and met with New Broughton project director, Les Brown; designer, Fraser Watkins; and Jude Barker, assistant development manager, as well as representatives from partners Salix Homes and social landlord Contour Homes.
Residents looked at a number of different plans illustrating the potential lay-outs for the houses and shared their thoughts on the designs. A separate consultation event was also held to capture residents' views on how the open space planned around the area should be used.
Feedback provided by Countryside Properties will allow residents to see how their input will be used in the design of the next two phases.
