About the area
The area is made up of two wards - Ordsall and Langworthy. For statistical information on these wards, see our ward profiles page.
The Ordsall and Langworthy Community Committee area forms the southern most part of Salford's inner city bounded by the Manchester Ship Canal on two sides. It incorporates Salford Quays and contains good quality housing and leisure developments.
The rest of the Ordsall area is mainly social housing, much of which has seen major redevelopment over the last ten years. The main Ordsall estate currently sees the construction of new family housing, this being achieved through a partnership between the city council and LPC Living, a local development company.
The Seedley and Langworthy Regeneration Programme, located in Langworthy ward, is designated as one of Salford's areas of major change and is a key priority for investment in the city. The SRB5 programme which ran from 1999 to 2006, covered an area which comprises approximately 3,200 households.
Salford Quays is an important landmark site in the area are includes The Lowry, an international arts centre and MediaCityUK. Other facilities in Ordsall and Langworthy include two recreation centres, the watersports centre and two municipal parks.
