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.
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.
