Central Salford

Occupying a key location, Salford Central links the rest of Salford through to Manchester city centre. The redevelopment of this area has already begun to breathe new life into Salford Central and is set to become a vibrant, collection of shops, cafes and business premises, as well as providing new houses and apartments across several sites.

The development of Salford Central covers 17 hectares around the main road of Chapel Street, Salford Central Station and the Adelphi and Bexley Square Conservation Area.

Plans include

  • The new Chapel Street - Work has begun to transform Chapel Street from a traffic congested highway into a distinctive city high street - a safer and calmer environment for businesses and visitors
  • Expansion of Salford Central Station as part of the £100 million Ordsall Chord investment by Network Rail, which forms part of the wider Northern Hub proposals
  • Redevelopment of the Middlewood site linking the New Bailey commercial quarter and the Chapel Street neighbourhood.

Salford Central key statistics

  • £650 million investment
  • Over 800 new homes
  • 200 hotel bed spaces
  • 2 million sq ft office space
  • New retail opportunities
  • Vastly improved physical environment

The regeneration of the Salford Central area is Salford's key priority and is being guided by the Salford Central Development Framework (2009) and the Salford Central Planning Guidance (2008).

Unlocking opportunities to facilitate a growing population and increased employment opportunities both within Salford and Manchester will help to deliver new jobs, homes and community facilities.
