Salford regeneration JV submits latest plans

Higher Broughton Partnership, a consortium of Salford City Council and Sigma Inpartnership, has submitted plans for a £9m health and retail scheme at Newbury Place.

The pair proposes a 30,000 sq ft development to contain three GP surgeries, a dental practice, pharmacy, optician and Tesco Express store. A decision is expected within eight to 12 weeks.

Separately, the partnership said it has sold a parcel of land to local school, Talmud Torah, which now plans to implement an existing planning consent to demolish part of its existing school and erect a four-storey classroom block in its place, with nursery accommodation to the ground floor and administration accommodation.

Higher Broughton Partnership incorporates regeneration specialist Sigma Inpartnership and Salford City Council, with funding from the Royal Bank of Scotland.

Graeme Hogg, director of Sigma, said: "The partnership has been working tirelessly for the last two years to facilitate these new deals and the long-term future of the regeneration scheme. The housing and health/retail centre are subject to planning consent but these new facilities will be a highly valuable addition to the development and its residents. The sale of land to Talmud Torah will enable extension works to commence which will have far reaching social and economic benefits for the area."
