Plans for a new housing scheme in the rapidly-developing Middlewood Locks area of Salford have been unanimously approved.
Tyneside firm Rodus Developments secured permission for an £18m U-shaped scheme of 127 dwellings in Liverpool Street from Salford City Council.
National planning and development consultancy Lichfields delivered the permission on its behalf.
Nathan Matta, planning director at the Manchester office of Lichfields, said: “This development, alongside the large scale development of Middlewood Locks, has the potential to bring about the creation of a sustainable new community in this part of the city and to significantly enhance visual amenity and the mix of uses on the area.
“The development of this site will result in many positive regeneration benefits and will be seen as a catalyst for change in this important part of the city”.
The development will consist of a U-shaped block fronting onto Liverpool Street flanked by Muslin Street and Craven Street. It features a staggered height from 9 storeys, lowering to 6 storeys.
It will consist of; 62 one-bed apartments, 57 two-bed apartments, and 8 three-bed apartments.
Middlewood Locks is within walking distance of the emerging Spinningfields district and Manchester City Centre.
Lichfields say the development will support over 200 jobs during the two-year build period, equating to an expected additional GVA of £12.2m.
