Countryside Properties has been granted planning permission from Salford City Council for the next phase of the regeneration scheme in Lower Broughton, east Salford.

It has been granted permission to develop 160 apartments in five blocks alongside 37 family houses, car parking, and open space on a 4.2 acre site located on Lucy Street at the junction of Camp Street and Great Clowes Street.

The site forms part of a large outline planning permission which was granted by Salford City Council in 2006. The regeneration proposals have been developed over the past three years in conjunction with Salford City Council, Contour Housing Group and through discussion and consultation with the local community. Countryside has already carried out the first phase of the scheme.

Les Brown, regional project director for Lower Broughton at Countryside Properties, said: ‘The second phase of the development is set to include a combination of both affordable and private new homes as we look to further increase the population figures of the local area and the prosperity that it deserves.’
