Council leaders will decide next week whether to grant planning permission for 246 new homes in Salford.
Planning Officers in Salford have recommended 246 new homes, proposed by Peterloo Estates, should be approved by Council members at the next Planning & Highways Committee Meeting on 3rd December 2015.
The plans, submitted to Salford in August this year, propose a mixture of 1, 2 and 3 bedroom properties including 3-storey townhouses at street level. Car parking is hidden within the development beneath a landscaped internal courtyard.
"On behalf of the landowner, Peterloo Estates and the appointed design team have worked tirelessly over the course of the year in order to bring these proposals forward. Not only does the development provide much needed new family housing in Salford but we have also agreed a substantial community contribution. This money will help fund the expansion of the local school as well as the new bridge proposal from Salford Crescent into the Meadows."
The proposed development is supported by Salford’s City Council’s adopted SPD the ‘Salford Central Development Framework’, adopted in 2009, which establishes a vision to guide the future development of Salford Central.
The architect for the project is IBI, based in Handforth, and Manchester based DEP Landscape Architecture provided the overall landscape strategy.
