Delivering community housing trust homes

Planning submission - proposed Irwell Valley High School site development

The planning submission has now been validated and the documents associated with the proposed development at Irwell Valley High School are now available to view online, reference number 21/77655/FUL.


This will provide 45 new homes on the vacant former school site. The scheme will deliver, 16 one-bed apartments, eight two-bed apartments, 11 two-bed houses, five three-bed houses and five four-bed houses. 

A planning decision is anticipated early September 2021, subject to taking possession of the site in 2021, and practical completion spring 2023.

The development is being built to high energy and space standards will provide a range of flexible and adaptable homes, include wheelchair accessible properties to create a mixed, balanced and sustainable housing offer and neighbourhood.

Local builders and suppliers will be used to boost the Salford economy and contractors are required to maximise ‘social value.’ This means offering training and apprenticeship opportunities to local people during construction, working with local schools to offer advice and information about careers in construction, buying local products where possible and taking care of the environment.

Contractors will be required to abide by the code for Considerate Constructors Scheme which includes site management plans to mitigate the impact of the development on neighbours and compliance with any coronavirus regulations in force at the time.

On completion the homes will transfer to Broughton Trust ownership. All the homes will be let at social rents to households on the council’s register in line with the approved allocations policies. These will be well managed using good quality housing management policies and practices.
