The development of 677 homes on the 64-acre former Brackley Golf Course, straddling the boundary between Salford and Bolton, has received consent.
Salford City Council signed off the outline application for the Little Hulton homes at a meeting in March, while confirmation from Bolton’s planning committee was received last week.
The applicant is MHE Investments, the leasehold owner of the land. Salford City Council owns the freehold.
Jon Suckley, partner in Avison Young’s Manchester planning team said: “Alongside the mix of houses and apartments, we have proposed extensive open space on this site, with associated landscaping and an ecological corridor. There will also be designated play areas on the north and west of the site for children and families to help create a sense of community.
“Both Salford and Bolton are experiencing significant periods of regeneration and investment so developments of this scale are essential to facilitate that growth and provide homes for the growing numbers wanting to live and work in these areas.”
Avison Young provided planning and environmental impact assessment advice; Baldwin Design were the masterplanners; and CBO Transport, transport consultants.
The homes are set to be delivered over a six-year period.
