Ordsall Lane homes top Salford planning agenda

Proposals from electrical manufacturer Selectric to redevelop its base on Ordsall Lane to provide 196 homes, designed by Fletcher-Rae, are expected to be approved by Salford City Council next week.

Selectric has two bases on Ordsall Lane, and Cow Lane. Funded by returns from the residential development of the Ordsall site, the company announced in September that it hoped to move into a “larger, custom, state-of-the art manufacturing centre”.

Advised by planner Euan Kellie Property Solutions, the application seeks permission for 196 flats, in a mix of one, two and three bedroom apartments, and a selection of duplex townhouses.

Extra facilities include a gym, lounge and communal landscaped piazza. A 1,800 sq ft commercial unit will be built on Ordsall Lane and Worrall Street.

The scheme is spread across two blocks. The proposed height of the shorter building is six storeys and the taller building is proposed being at a maximum height of nine storeys.

Salford City Council’s planning committee meets on Thursday 25 January. Council planning officers have recommended approval of the project.
