Public Consultation on Plot E3 – Share Your Views Here
Date published: Thursday, 13 September 2012

ECf held a public consultation event on Thursday 13th September inviting views from the public on their proposals for Plot E3; you can see the information boards here.

The proposal, known at the moment as Plot E3, will provide a complete street block of new buildings ranging from 6-storeys fronting Chapel Street to 3-storeys on Barrow Street. The buildings will contain new apartments, townhouses and commercial premises, including a local convenience store. The main facades and distinctive roof of the existing Bell Tower building are being retained and refurbished as part of the development, retaining part of the character of the street.

Even though the consultation event has finished we still very much would like to hear your views on the proposals and invite you to contact the team. In the first instance please contact Richard Purser, DPP (scheme planning consultants) either via email (richard.purser@dppukltd) or by telephone 0161 247 8555.

This is the next step to bringing new development to Chapel Street and we hope to receive your support to help us build the future of Salford Central.

Did this get PP? Site was being excavated yesterday, 19th C foundations exposed.

Has anyone seen this page before - From the main picture It looks like a lot of development between the line of the inner relief road and the river to the left of New quay street as you head out of the city centre, which I think ties in with Middlewood locks?

Interesting. Canopus thread is here, but no posts for a couple of years.

Can't find it listed on GVA's site, not currently being marketed?


The Chapel Street E3 app was approved today.

"Plan for former Salford magistrates' courts to become apartments

The historic magistrates court building in Salford could be transformed into apartments – a year after it closed its doors.

The grand, grade-II listed building shut in December last year as part of government cuts and has sat empty since.

The closure marked the end of an era for justice in the city and raised concerns over the building’s future.

Talks are now underway between Salford council bosses, the court service and developers, with plans to convert the premises, in Bexley Square, into accommodation..."

Its the old Greengate site, the one with the pond bullshit construction created. Be interesting to find out who's carrying out the work and who's paying for it. Its needed some attention for years.

Heres the old thread...

Green light for first phase of Salford Central
12th December 2012

Share:By James Graham - Deputy Editor, North West

A PLANNING application for the first part of the £650m Salford Central regeneration has been approved.

The proposals - for an area off Chapel Street adjacent to the Bell Tower pub - involve a block of six to three-storey apartments and retail units fronting onto Chapel Street. The pub will be kept and refurbished.

Known as plot E3, the area sits between Chapel Street, Islington Way, Barrow Street and Wroe Street.

Phil Mayall, development director at the English Cities Fund, said: “Plot E3 is the first of a number of sites ECf will be developing as a part of the wider Salford Central regeneration scheme and we’re delighted to have secured planning permission for this major project.

“We have been working closely with the local community and Salford Council on these plans for a number of years and it’s great news for all concerned that the transformation of Chapel Street can now begin.”

Salford City Council’s assistant mayor for strategic planning, councillor Derek Antrobus, said: “This is a great leap forward in the Chapel Street regeneration. Our investment in improving the quality of the environment is starting to pay off. New shops will benefit local people and the new homes will meet the needs of our growing population.”

A little bit more about the approval of plot E3, including a rough start date - Spring 2013:

http://www.salfordcentral.com/latest-news/

ECf WELCOMES APPROVAL OF MAJOR SALFORD REGENERATION PLANS

Date published: Tuesday, 18 December 2012

A key development proposed as part of multi-million pound plans to regenerate Salford has been given the green light by Councillors.

Now approved, Plot E3, which lies between Chapel Street, Barrow Street, Wroe Street and Islington Way, will become the site for 14 new townhouses, 83 apartments and commercial premises, including a convenience store for the area.

The plans were submitted by English Cities Fund (ECf), which is delivering the Chapel Street and New Bailey proposals. Work is expected to begin in spring 2013 and will see the area transformed. A complete block of new buildings will be constructed, ranging from six storeys fronting onto Chapel Street, to three storeys facing Barrow Street.

Phil Mayall, development director at ECf, said: “Plot E3 is the first of a number of sites ECf will be developing as a part of the wider Salford Central regeneration scheme and we’re delighted to have secured planning permission for this major project.

“We have been working closely with the local community and Salford Council on these plans for a number of years and it’s great news for all concerned that the transformation of Chapel Street can now begin.”

When complete, Salford Central – which is made up of two inter-dependent, but distinct areas, Chapel Street and New Bailey – will create around 11,000 new jobs, 220,000 square metres of commercial space, 849 new homes and 390 hotel rooms.

Salford City Council’s Assistant Mayor for Strategic Planning, Councillor Derek Antrobus, said: “This is a great leap forward in the Chapel Street regeneration. Our investment in improving the quality of the environment is starting to pay off.

“New shops will benefit local people and the new homes will meet the needs of our growing population.”

Salford Central – a major 44 acre regeneration scheme – is set to transform a key area of the city. The scheme is being delivered by ECf – a joint venture between Muse Developments, Legal & General and The Homes & Communities Agency – working closely with development partner, Salford City Council.
