Affordable housing developer Salix Homes has submitted an application which proposes a three-storey, 70,000 sq ft extra-care facility on Arrow Street.
The scheme is being brought forward in partnership with Salford Clinical Commissioning Group to “fulfil a requirement within Salford” for extra-care homes.

Salix Homes is seeking full planning permission for the scheme, which would consist of a mix of one and two-bedroom apartments for affordable rent.
The 2.1-acre site is currently vacant.
A public consultation on the proposals was held on 11 December within the Longbow Court apartment block. Of the 20 residents who attended the event, the developer considered the feedback was positive “and felt that attendees were satisfied that the proposed development.”
Salix has also submitted a planning application with Step Places to deliver a 161-home neighbourhood across two brownfield sites in Seedley.
Adam Gray, senior associate at OMI Architects, said: “The proposals for the Arrow Street site will provide high quality extra-care and dementia friendly residential accommodation for people over the age of 55.
“Arrange in three brick and zinc clad blocks and connected by simple glazed links, the building will provide 70 dwellings in a landscaped garden setting.
“The architectural expression of bay fronts and dormer windows echo the site’s historic Melbourne Street terraces.”
