International developer plans Greengate flats

Jessica Middleton-Pugh

A planning application is due to be submitted later this month by Sloane International Developments for a 310-apartment scheme in Greengate, Salford.

The scheme, called Norton Court, is being designed by Jeffrey Bell Architects and comprises two residential blocks on a car park site near to the River Irwell and the Abito Tower.

The apartments would be a mix of one-, two- and three-bedroom flats.

The proposals are currently out for public consultation, with a full planning application due to be submitted later this month.

According to an information leaflet issued by Sloane: “If approved, the scheme would deliver a range of much needed high quality housing, provide further investment in this area of Salford and support the wider regeneration aspirations of the city.”

Salford City Council’s Greengate regeneration strategy outlines plans to provide around 1,826 new homes in the area over the next 15 years. Select Property Group was recently granted planning permission for a 260-apartment block on Chapel Street.

Sloane International is a privately owned and financed property company with offices in the UK, the Middle East and Asia, affiliated with student property development company Hill & Standard.

Indigo Planning is advising Sloane on the application.
