  1. Salford City Council is looking for a development partner to provide a high quality, housing-led development in Greengate. The council has launched a selection process with the aim of appointing a partner by the end of the year. Greengate sits in the heart of city centre Salford and is experiencing a phase of development activity and growth. Salford City Mayor Paul Dennett said: Developers have until 27th September 2021 to apply for the opportunity. The successful developer partner will enter into a development agreement with Salford City Council and prepare a scheme in accordance with the Greengate Regeneration Strategy and SCC Planning Policy to secure planning permission for the sites, and support the council as it seeks to acquire the stalled sites within the area. The council will also continue to work with the successful applicant, so that the consented schemes may be completed to an agreed programme. Interested parties should login to the Chest to see further details of the opportunity, including instructions for applying and details of selection criteria. It is available at https://procontract.due-north.com/Advert?advertId=9299bb4f-94fa-eb11-810d-005056b64545&p=e0cc5631-4690-e511-80fb-000c29c9ba21
  2. The homes are being built on three sites - Clifton Green in Pendlebury and Brassington Avenue and Ryall Avenue which are both in Ordsall. The developments are made up of 30 homes and 99 apartments including wheelchair friendly homes at all sites. It is intended that the homes will become part of Dérive Housing’s portfolio – a company owned by Salford City Council. Salford City Mayor Paul Dennett said: The homes in the three sites are being constructed by Seddon with the construction design and consultancy provided by Identity Consult. Jonathan Seddon, CEO at Seddon said: The City Mayor was joined on the visits by Deputy City Mayor Councillor Tracy Kelly, Lead Member for Housing, Property and Regeneration and the council’s Chief Executive Tom Stannard. Representatives from Seddon and Identity also joined the visit. Councillor Kelly said: Planning permission was approved for all the developments in October 2020. All the homes will be highly insulated, beyond current government standards, to reduce energy use and bills and lower their carbon footprint. Salford City Council is hoping this will encourage other housing developers to follow its environmental lead.

  3. A new housing development in Salford has seen all of its properties now sold or reserved. Poets in Swinton is the first new-build development from housing association Salix Homes, with all the new homes now snapped up by eager buyers. The 160-home mixed tenure development of two, three and four-bedroom properties, comprises of 120 homes for social housing rent, and a further 40 homes for outright sale, available through the Government’s Help to Buy scheme. The final 19 homes for off-plan sale were released in April by Willo Homes – Salix Homes’ new affordable home ownership brand - and all were reserved in a matter of weeks. Terry McBride, development manager at Salix Homes, said: The scheme has been part of a wider project to redevelop the surrounding Poets estate, which is also known as Beechfarm, and is so named due to the surrounding streets being named after famous wordsmiths. These include Shakespeare Road, Wordsworth Road and Tennyson Road. As part of the ambitious redevelopment scheme, 146 homes were demolished that had suffered historical structural issues, with the 160 brand-new homes built to replace them. Those residents affected by the demolition of the existing properties were given priority to move back into the new-build homes. Salix Homes is working alongside partner contractor Casey on the final phases of the development, which is expected to be completed later this year. Other affordable housing developments by Salix Homes now in progress, include the Artifex apartment block in Trinity, and Neighbourhood – a 157-home development earmarked for brownfield land in Seedley.

  4. Salix Homes has five new apprentices, four of whom have joined its Repairs and Maintenance Service, while the fifth is learning the ropes in the Customer Service Team. Among the new recruits is 19-year-old Connor Boyle who had all but given up hope after applying for job after job but never hearing back. New-dad Connor, from Kersal, who welcomed his daughter into the world in June, said: Connor is embarking on a plumbing apprenticeship, following in his granddad's footsteps, and will be learning the tools of the trade four days a week while spending a day in the classroom with education providers Total People, working towards an NVQ. Over the past three years Salix Homes has created more than 50 apprenticeship positions through its Earn as You Learn programme, both within the organisation and with its partner contractors. Sue Sutton, executive director of operations at Salix Homes, said: The new apprentices joining Salix Homes’ Repairs and Maintenance Team have been provided with new toolkits from its partner building merchants - Travis Perkins Managed Services. Maggie Devine, social value manager for Travis Perkins Managed Services, said: "We are passionate about supporting apprentices coming into the industry, and hope that the provision of these new tools will support them on their journey to train in their chosen profession. We wish them the best of luck through their apprenticeship and their future career." Photos: The new Salix Homes’ apprentices joining the housing association’s in-house Repairs and Maintenance Team.

  5. Throughout the summer holidays, children and their parents attended the Marlborough Road Academy holiday club in Broughton where they could tuck into a free hot meal and enjoy fun activities with their friends, including sports, dance and arts and crafts. Salford housing provider Salix Homes provided the club with £500 to help fund the food and activities on offer as part of its Springboard community grant programme, which supports local projects that boost community spirit, promote health and wellbeing, reduce isolation or improve the environment. Mum Sahira Chaudhrey, attended the holiday club with her three young children. She said: Salix Homes also provided £600 additional funding through its Springboard programme to enable the children and their parents, along with other local families, to enjoy a day trip to Knowsley Safari Park to mark the end of the summer holidays. Saimah Alam, who also attended the holiday club with her children, said: Ben Cruickshanks, neighbourhood manager at Salix Homes, added: The newly-formed holiday club was set up by Salford charity The Life Centre, on behalf of the Salford Food Network, and delivered in partnership with the Broughton Team Churches, which includes St James Higher Broughton and St Clement with St Matthias Lower Broughton, along with Marlborough Road School and Audacious Church. The initiative also received support from Salford Community Leisure, The Rio Ferdinand Foundation, Tesco and Salford Council’s catering service City Wide.
  6. After controversially (See Salford Star Article Here) turning down planning permission in July 2018, Salford Council has today (Thursday, September 6 2018) finally approved plans for the multi-million pound Canon Green Campus development on Canon Green Drive in Trinity. Previously the Council had rejected the application with Councillors declaring that it was "Odd", "Wierd" and even "Bonkers" that the council would reject affordable housing in the area whilst at the same meeting giving Countryside Properties the green light for 299 private rent apartments more or less around the corner in Broughton. The good news is that finally the £22.5m project by Salford housing association Salix Homes will see ageing tower block Canon Green Court completely transformed and modernised, along with neighbouring apartment block Westminster House, which will undergo an external facelift. As part of the development, a brand new 11-storey apartment block will be built within the grounds of the expansive site, comprising of 108 one and two-bedroom affordable apartments. Lee Sugden, chief executive at Salix Homes, said: The refurbishment at Canon Green Court, which was built during the 1960s, includes new kitchens, bathrooms, heating systems, sprinkler systems and exterior re-facing and insulation. Salix Homes, which owns more than 8,000 homes across Salford, will now appoint a contractor to carry out the project and it’s hoped that work will start on site later this year.
