Salford Crescent land to be freed up by Travis Perkins move

The building materials supplier is to create a facility at James Corbett Road in Weaste, relocating from its current site at Lissadel Street, which falls within the £2.5bn Crescent masterplan. 

Travis Perkins has applied to redevelop the former Network Plus site at James Corbett Road into a 45,000 sq ft trading branch. 

The company wants to demolish the existing industrial and office buildings on the four-acre James Corbett Road site and construct four new buildings:

  • A shop and warehouse  
  • A dry storage building 
  • Meet and greet building  
  • Driver’s welfare building.

Network Plus, an infrastructure services provider, occupied the site until last year when it relocated to Chaddock Lane in Worsley. 

Peacock + Smith is advising Travis Perkins on planning, and WE Architecture is leading on design. 

The facility’s creation will see the builders’ merchant cease operations at its Lissadel Street complex, freeing up land within the first phase of English Cities Fund’s Salford Crescent masterplan. 

Earlier this year, ECF progressed plans for the first part of the 252-acre masterplan, focussing on a 27-acre chunk billed as the Innovation Zone North. 

With construction expected to begin towards the end of 2023 and last for 10 years, ECF hopes to deliver the following elements between Broughton Road East and University Road across buildings reaching up to 11 storeys:  

  • 1.6m sq ft of commercial innovation floorspace  
  • 950 homes  
  • 66,000 sq ft of learning facilities,  
  • A 260,000 sq ft multistorey movement hub  
  • 27,000 sq ft of space earmarked for cafes, shops and drinking establishments.
