Taylor Wimpey and Redrow Homes have gained planning consent for 243 houses to be built on a brownfield site in Cadishead, Salford.
In February this year, Didsbury-based planning advisors NJL Consulting were instructed to work on behalf of Taylor Wimpey and Redrow Homes to reconfigure the site and an application was submitted within six weeks.
Paul Smith, land and property director at Taylor Wimpey, said: "We are pleased to have finally secured planning permission after a difficult application process. The range of housetypes we will now be developing is intended to appeal to a wide range of purchasers and will provide an economic stimulus to Salford."
Taylor Wimpey and Redrow Homes plan to start on the site imminently.
