Salford to advance pair of regen plans

Lovell Together, the joint venture between housebuilders Lovell Partnerships and Together Housing, is to receive approval for 127 homes as part of the regeneration of Pendleton, while the city council also prepares to sign off English Cities Fund’s £2.5bn Salford Crescent masterplan. 

The Pendleton project, plans for which were lodged by Lovell Together last September, is the third phase of the wider regeneration of the area that will see 3,000 homes built or refurbished by 2030 after the demolition of more than 750 homes within Pendleton estates. 

Lovell Together’s plans comprise 127 homes, 17 of which would be designated as affordable.

The homes, a mix of mews and semi-detached properties, would be built on a 7.7-acre plot south of Liverpool Road in the area around Amersham Street. 

Public realm, rain gardens and a cycle street linking into wider Salford cycle routes are also included in the proposals. 

Barton Willmore is the planning consultant for the project. 

Work on the 135-acre regeneration of Pendleton is already underway and phase one saw the construction of a housing either side of Blodwell Street and Athole Street.

Phase two comprised the refurbishment of properties within the area bound by Liverpool Street,  Cross Lane, Graythorpe Walk and Buckingham Street, and the construction of 42 affordable homes on land north of Aylesbury Close.

Lovell Together’s application was the first to be submitted by the joint venture, which formed last year 

The 50:50 JV aims to create communities and meet housing delivery targets across the North West, Yorkshire, Humberside and the East Midlands, with a target of building 3,000 new homes in the next five years, the partners said at the time. 

Salford Crescent Masterplan 2

ECF’s plans propose extending the Metrolink to connect the university with Salford Quays

Elsewhere in Salford, the city mayor is expected to approve development consortium English Cities Fund’s 240-acre Salford Crescent masterplan, next Monday. 

The fund, made up of Muse Developments, Homes England and Legal & General, instructed Make Architects to draw up an overarching plan for the area that will guide development over the next 20 years. 

Proposals included in ECF’s plan include a transport interchange, featuring the Metrolink, as well as a mixed-use neighbourhood with a hotel within the former Police HQ building, and the redevelopment of The Old Fire Station into a multi-use community space. 

Additionally, the Farmer Norton Car Park, Centenary Building and Old Adelphi would all be repurposed under ECF’s proposals. 

As well as Make Architects, the project team for the updated framework includes consultancy CBRE, infrastructure firm Aecom, landscape architects Planit-IE, quantity surveyor and project manager Faithful + Gould, and consultancy Cundall.

It’s about time the council looked at refurbishing and regeneration of the charlestown area of salford which seems to be completely overlooked council property run by salix homes are greatly in need of face-lifts and refurbs as this area has been completely forgotten in my opinion is
Rockley gardens. , Mark avenue , trenthum lawns london at,. Just too name a few.

Can someone please provide an update on the wider Pendleton regeneration scheme (including the sports village) that was proposed? Not sure if PNW could do a bit of digging into this?

Pendleton One and the surrounding resi estates (including the one on this article) all formed part of this masterplan but it’s gone quiet.

The Crescent .
….So they make it 20 mph and speed humps along it and then decide to have a tram rail along it. all up and start again. Complete waste of money. The tram should have carried on all the way along the east Lancs to Leigh and the eccles line continued to loop around to the Trafford centre.

Observationist: it’s called progress and it’s a 20 year plan. But don’t worry, the speed that Salford move at we won’t be riding a tram on the crescent in the next 10 years and it’ll probably just annoyingly stop before it gets to the city centre, because that would be daft to take into the city
