Done Salford PRS scheme approved

Salford City Council has given the green light to plans by Betfred founder Fred Done for the development of 380 apartments and townhouses at the junction of Trinity Way and Blackfriars, Salford.

The scheme will be aimed at the private rented sector and will be delivered by FICM, the property company headed up by Done.

Designed by 5plus Architects, Trinity includes a range of one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments and seven townhouses. The grade two-listed Black Friars pub will form an entrance to the development.

Law firm Crawfords, which currently occupies one of the buildings on the site, would move to offices on the ground floor fronting Trinity Way.

Euan Kellie Property Solutions led the planning application process, along with SPC Project Managers.

Euan Kellie, director, Euan Kellie Property Solutions said: "Trinity is an exceptional development, geared towards the private rental sector. Working alongside 5plus Architects, FCIM Ltd and Salford City Council, we are pleased to have gained planning consent and look forward to seeing it complete."

Wish there were more town houses! Surely there is the need for family homes in the centre and this could be ideal? Why aren’t there more? And more apartments for families and older people otherwise isn’t it just going to be forever the transient 25- 35 year olds living there for a bit then moving out when they have a family?

Diabolically bad, looks like Salford is the new dumping ground for schemes that Manchester rejects. Can see Salford becoming even more of a bye-word for bad planning and even worse build for the next half century as it was for the last. That Council would struggle to plan a garden shed never mind accommodation for 250,000 plus.
