Developer returns for third crack at newspaper warehouse revamp

Dan Whelan

Joint Investment Power has twice withdrawn plans to redevelop the Salford site, previously used as a distribution warehouse for the Manchester Evening News. 

The developer has now tabled its third application to overhaul the site, requesting consent from Salford City Council to create 12 trade counter units totalling 14,000 sq ft. 

Create It Studios is the architect behind the latest proposals and Mialex is the planning consultant. 

Located on Broughton Lane on the edge of Cambridge Industrial Estate, the site is vacant following the demolition of the warehouse around a decade ago. 

In 2016, Joint Investment Power submitted plans for 41,000 sq ft of trade counter space across 21 units, as well as 21,000 sq ft of offices. 

Having withdrawn these proposals, the developer returned in 2017 with scaled-back aspirations for the site, submitting plans for 37,000 sq ft of trade counter space across 13 units. 

However, those plans were also withdrawn.
