104 new affordable homes approved in Salford

Plans for 104 new affordable homes have been approved by Salford City Council.

The council submitted the application to its own planning panel and the new homes will now be built on vacant land at three sites in the city.

Each site will consist of 100% affordable homes to meet local demand.

The homes will be built at:

Clifton Green in Pendlebury

  • Two 3 bedroomed houses and two 4 bedroomed houses
  • Two apartment blocks which are three storeys, consisting of 47 apartments (one and two bedroomed)

Ryall Avenue in Ordsall

  • Four 2 bedroomed homes
  • Two 3 bedroomed homes
  • Two apartment blocks consisting of 35 apartments – made up of one and two bedroomed units. Four wheelchair accessible apartments are included in the design

Brassington Avenue in Ordsall

  • Five two-bedroomed homes, including two wheelchair accessible units
  • Seven 3 bedroomed homes

Salford City Mayor Paul Dennett said: “In Salford we are pushing ahead with our priority of providing more affordable homes to meet local demand. This is a key priority of mine and something are driving forwards.

“We are in the middle of a housing crisis and need to provide more than 600 affordable homes a year to meet the current need.

“In particular local people need one bedroomed apartments and thanks to this successful application today those type of apartments will be available soon.”

Deputy City Mayor Councillor Tracy Kelly, Lead Member for Housing at Salford City Council said: “The approval of 104 affordable homes at the planning panel today is great news for this city.

“All homes will be built on vacant land with all locations providing specially adapted homes that are wheelchair accessible.

“We will now push to get the homes built as soon as possible so people can move into the homes they so desperately need.”
