Plans tabled for Salford rehab centre
Albert Park House would replace the vacant property at 123 Great Cheetham Street West, the site of two unsuccessful attempts at residential redevelopment.
Plans have been lodged for the creation of a 26-bedroom rehabilitation centre in the Salford suburb of Broughton, opposite Albert Park.
JC Design Architecture has drawn up the plans for the three-storey facility, which would offer detox services to individuals struggling with addiction issues.
Patients would have access to 24-hour nursing staff, along with a range of facilities such as rooms dedicated to physical exercise, massages, holistic therapy, and presentations.
There would be five car parking spaces, including one disabled, provided for staff and visitors.
The existing property on site is a former church rectory-turned-flats, which has been vacant since 2019. The building is in declining condition and “performs poorly in urban design terms”, according to a planning statement.
Previous plans to redevelop the plot were submitted in 2020 to replace the current apartment block with a new five-storey residential building. However, this application was withdrawn due to officer concerns regarding the scale of the development.
A revised application proposing the construction of a four-storey apartment block was subsequently refused for the same reason.
Mialex is the planning consultant for the scheme. The project team also includes Axis, Civic Engineers, Rachel Hacking Ecology, GroundTech, Ascerta, and Miller Goodall.
