Trafford to rule on £11m Sale West regeneration

Irwell Valley Homes plans to build up to 260 homes across 90 acres of the estate, with a full application for the first 80-unit phase expected to be approved on Thursday. 

The housing provider has also applied for outline consent for subsequent phases, which include 180 homes and improvements to the existing Sale West Community Centre. 

The site, plans for which were lodged in February, is bounded by Firs Way to the north and west and Cherry Lane to the south. Starting later this year, all of the existing homes owned by Irwell Valley will get new kitchens, roofs, fencing, gates and boilers, under Irwell Valley’s plans intended to help it strengthen its presence in the area.

The housing estate, developed in the 1960s and 1970s, comprises around 1,400 dwellings, the majority of which is former council housing stock now managed by the housing provider. 

In addition to its planning applications, Irwell Valley has pledged to invest a further £7m towards upgrading its existing stock. It also wants to make improvements to roads, pedestrian and cycle routes, and open spaces.

There have been some objections to the scheme, including concerns over potential loss of green space and oversubscription of schools and health centres in the local area. 

Nexus Planning, AEW Architects, Exterior Architects, Curtins and CPC are advising Irwell Valley Homes and Trafford Council on the regeneration scheme.
