Proposals readied for Pendleton student tower 

Campus Living Villages wants to refurbish two existing blocks at Salford Shopping Centre and build a third 24-storey tower, a scheme that would more than double the number of student beds at the site. 

The developer and student homes operator has lodged plans to add 794 bedspaces at its Pendleton scheme, located off Belvedere Road. 

As well as the tower, which would feature 690 beds, Campus Living Villages wants to add two-storey upward extensions to John Lester Court and Eddie Coleman Court. 

The existing buildings, both 15 storeys, provide around 700 bedspaces and the extensions would add a further 104. 

If Campus Living Village’s scheme is approved, it would see the number of student rooms at the scheme exceed 1,400. 

Sheffield-based Hadwell Cawkwell Davidson is the architect for the scheme. The development is located close to Donard Affordable Homes’ plans for Albion Court, the 261-home redevelopment of the Buzz Bingo site on the opposite side of Belvedere Road.

RIP the Flemish Weaver, the finest flat-roof pub there ever was!

I used to walk there from Castle Irwell, we’d often get pelted with bricks and stones


Just how many students accommodation do you need when the area is crying out for affordable housing total disrespect for the people that actually need houses not more students. These colleges make me sick crying out know money but yet have a complete saturation of the area for student accommodation makes you think it’s fair when it comes to affordable housing

it looks not the best area to accommodate students until the Council does something to improve the area first
