A further 127 homes are to be added as Salford City Council looks to progress the next stage of the area’s regeneration programme.
Salford city mayor Paul Dennett approved the latest tranche of housing at the council’s property and regeneration briefing yesterday.
The project, which is to be advanced with partner Lovell Together, is the third phase of a project to add or enhance 3,000 homes in Pendleton by 2030, following the demolition of 750 homes in the area.
Lovell Together was formed last year between Lovell Partnerships and Together Housing: this project was the partnership’s first application lodged.
The council said that so far, the Pendleton programme has seen 344 family homes and apartments delivered, 35% at social rent level.
Development plans show a mix of two, three and four-bedroom homes which includes four wheelchair-accessible dwellings and 15 allotments.
The homes will include LED lighting and solar panels, while the project includes 29 new street trees along with cycle paths. Salford secured a £1.91m Brownfield Land Grant supported by the Greater Manchester Combined Authority for the scheme.
Deputy city mayor Cllr Tracy Kelly, Salford’s lead member for housing, said: “The transformation and extra homes are much needed and will create jobs and opportunities such as apprenticeships when work begins.”
Kelly added that news on further phases and the £15m Pendleton leisure centre project, for which a contractor is due to appointed, will follow in due course.
