Since May 2006, when LPC Living and Salford City Council signed the Ordsall Development Framework, the regeneration of the area has developed at an astounding rate. Over 580 new homes are already built or under construction. A new primary school has been built and a new supermarket, hotel, retail units and residential properties are under construction at the Radclyffe site. Investment in new and improved open space is also underway.
The development framework
Our partnership work in Ordsall is based on a development framework, prepared by architects BPTW in consultation with local residents, and endorsed by both Ordsall and Langworthy Community Committee and the council in 2004.
The framework is not intended to be a blueprint for the development of any particular site but proposes a number of environmental and infrastructure improvements that would benefit the estate, identifies sites suitable for redevelopment, sets out key principles to guide development and illustrates possible building footprints.
A summary of the development framework can be downloaded below. A copy of the full document is available for inspection at Ordsall Library.
An updated copy of the framework plan can also be downloaded below.
Impact on council stock
There is no intention to demolish good, existing housing stock as part of the proposals. It is envisaged that the housing stock in this area will benefit from both 'Decent Homes' investment brought forward in options developed as part of the citywide Stock Options Review as well as benefiting from improvements in the area identified in the development framework.
