Salford greenlights 485-home estate rebuild  

A mix of modern flats and houses are to be built on the former High Street estate, the next phase of Pendleton’s ongoing regeneration. 

Lovell Partnerships, SP+, and Together Housing Group’s plans to build 485 residences off Churchill Way and revamp Clarendon Park were approved by Salford City Council just before Christmas. 

The scheme will see around 22 acres redeveloped following the demolition of the 1960s High Street Estate several years ago. 

The last remaining homes on Holcombe Close would be demolished to make way for the latest phase of redevelopment. Salford City Council has been involved in a lengthy stand-off with the owner of one of those properties, who has refused to sell. 

Proposals feature 348 two- to four-bedroom houses as well as 137 apartments across nine blocks. 

There would also be 30% affordable housing provision across the site. 

The new homes would overlook Clarendon Park, which will be retained and revamped. 

Improvements to the park include the delivery of two play areas, a multi-use games area, and a skate park. 

public consultation was held on the plans in March before a planning application was submitted in June. Plans originally proposed the creation of 471 homes, however this has since been increased. 

Stantec is the planning consultant for the scheme. Also on the project team are Eddisons, Strategic Sports Consultancy, and Amenity Tree. 

The scheme forms part of the wider regeneration of the area, which started in 2009 and features 2,000 new and refurbished properties following the demolition of around 800 former council houses.

Great, contextual street-based design. Well done.

Happy New Year everyone.

Looks like a good, cohesive scheme with the right density, which should create a long term sustainable community – more please.

Salford Council needs to improve the life of people there first, at the moment it seems more focused on vanity projects like this one

By Luke

And in so many cases before hand the people of Salford will be highly unlikely to afford to rent let alone buy any the properties and again will be bought by investors from foreign claims or from London as more and more come up from down south as it’s becoming or become to expensive for them to live there which then means those who are born and raised in the north suddenly get priced out of there city’s and regions. So much for it being grim up north

This new build, cost Me my perfectly livable home. Yet we were told that that when the time came, we wouldn’t be entitled to apply fot one of these new homes. So are they a good job well done? NEVER.

It is grim up North, it just isn’t grim for them in Manchester, or such a culture shock . I doubt they are flocking to Middlesborough.

Such sad decision, so grim and without appeal

‘And in so many cases before hand the people of Salford will be highly unlikely to afford to rent let alone buy any the properties’ ? Really? Hard to believe such parochial wittering is still written. The world has moved on, this is not the 1950,s . Nice design this and to be welcomed.

Good housing a vanity project! 😂 Couldn’t make up some of these comments!

By Charlie chester

Not sure how y’all are saying its a cohesive street based scheme at the correct density from one image!?

By Dwg

Dwg – I reckon they’re getting that information from the planning application. Salford 23/81788/FUL if you’re interested

So they demolish one lot of flats to build another unaffordable lot of flats that’s that nobody in the area will be able to afford. Smart move. . . . NOT

By L. Crook

Actually a nice design. Always liked it around there. Bound to be moaners though.


There was 100% affordable housing there previously. All demolished in the name of regenerating the estate….

Accessible, Sustainable and Affordable but sadly far too dense.
