Salford - 9th worst plave to live in the uk.

They dident mention that did they.


(It was on a programme last night)
I dont think this development will stop all the chavs being there will it?
Building houses for the jews seems like religionist discrimination to me. I know it doesnt say that its for the jews, but trust me, it is.

Sorry, this new Jews-only housing development would have passed me by?

Do you seriously think a developer would do that? These new houses are for anyone who wants to pay for them. This new development is actually concentrated in Higher Broughton which is mostly run down council estate, not Broughton Park which is the Jew-dominated area just north.

Round up of recent Central Salford News

Central Salford News:

Quote:
Irish investor's interested in Abito








Investors are likely to be interested in the launch of a new contemporary studio apartment development in Manchester. The first of its kind in Britain, the Abito condominium complex at Greengate has been designed to capitalise on the demand for low-cost, high-quality living spaces.

Developer Abito, the innovation arm of local firm Ask Property Developments, expects the €8.5 million scheme to be complete in the summer of next year when it will comprise 256 studios - 200 apartments with 32 square metres of living space and 56 of the larger Abito maxis, which extend to 58 square metres and are set within a three-sided tower of polished concrete and glass.

The majority of the units available at the scheme are under the British stamp duty threshold of stg£120,000 with prices averaging stg£108,000 for the normal studios and stg£139,000 for the maxi studios. A total of 50 apartments are available off the plans through the Prestige Group, which has branches in Dublin and Galway.

Local agents claim that rental yields for the apartments will be among the strongest in the city when the development is completed in July 2006, and are predicting rents of stg£500 per month for the smaller units.

The brainchild of interior designer Jasper Sanders and architect Gavin Elliot of the Building Design Partnership, the Abito project aims to offer “sophisticated living'‘ within a compact living space.

The design of the individual apartments centres around a four-sided pod that divides the studio space into two - one area for sleeping, complete with a fold-down bed, fold-out work station and integrated wardrobes and storage, and one space for living, equipped with a fitted kitchen and reception area, shower room and utility room. All apartments have their own balconies, high ceilings and floor to ceiling windows spanning the full width of the property. The space above the pod can be utilised as an extra bed deck if required.

Other features include fitted combination microwave ovens, two-ring hobs, fridges and dishwashers, a remote control lighting and heating system, and a video entry system. A 24-hour concierge service will provide a range of services.

The Greengate area is within a few minutes of the Harvey Nichols department store as well as the main shopping area of King Street, and is also within walking distance of the business district. Investors will require 5 per cent for an initial deposit, followed by another 5 per cent due in September, with the 90 per cent balance due on completion.

Go-ahead for 2,500 homes in Salford

Catherine Ascroft
THE transformation of derelict areas in Salford into 2,500 new homes can go ahead with news that developers have been chosen.

After a tough selection process, The Charlestown and Kearlsey New Deal for Communities (NDC) and Salford City Council have confirmed the companies picked to make the plans a reality.

They have chosen Miller Homes along with Inspired Developments to work together in a joint partnership to regenerate the area.

Areas for revival include a former high school site with elevated views over Salford's skyline and a new riverside scheme overlooking the Irwell.

Once redeveloped, the abandoned and underused sites will become a range of family and executive houses and apartments with affordable housing schemes included in all the developments.

The £400m regeneration will also include the demolition of around 350 terraces and local authority homes which have fallen into disrepair. A number of other council and private properties will also be improved under the scheme.

Miller Homes, part of the Miller Group, will be responsible for building 80 per cent of the residential homes while Inspired Developments, a Seddon Group company, take on the remainder as well as retail schemes and other community based projects.

Ann-Marie Pickup, Chair of the NDC Partnership Board said: "We already have a number of exciting projects including two new Health and Social Care centres, the Beacon Youth Centre and the Salford Sports Centre.

"The appointment of Miller Homes and Inspired Development means that we can now start the process of working with local residents to come up with schemes that will bring new housing to the area."

Mike Bowman, Land Director of Miller Homes said: "Together with Inspired Developments, our proposals will ultimately create a vibrant, successful and sustainable community in this area of Salford."

Central Salford Urban Regeneration Company (URC)


The recently launched Draft Vision and Regeneration Framework for Central Salford demonstrates how Salford will become one of the most beautiful parts of Greater Manchester.

Led by Central Salford Urban Regeneration Company (URC), the new Draft Vision outlines an ambitious approach to the city’s regeneration; building on the area’s natural assets to create a city of outstanding beauty.

The Framework demonstrates how Salford will be transformed over the next ten to twenty years into a place characterised by dramatic waterside vistas, high quality green public spaces, pedestrian friendly streets, rejuvenated heritage buildings and modern architectural gems. It will be an active, vibrant, urban district.




Published by Central Salford Urban Regeneration Company and its core partners – the Northwest Regional Development Agency (NWDA), English Partnerships and Salford City Council – the framework was developed by an international consortium of architects, urban strategists, planners and economists who have worked alongside local communities and stakeholders.

Joe Berridge of Urban Strategies, part of the international team working in Salford said: "Salford has hidden itself from the world. When projects like The Lowry happen the world is surprised. Well it's about to be surprised again. Above all we want to make Central Salford an enjoyable place, like the best parts of the best cities, where people choose to live, to work and to enjoy themselves. This is not an impossible dream - the proximity to booming central Manchester, the rich array of heritage buildings, the extraordinary river - these are the mix for a great city."

The Draft Vision and Regeneration Framework has a number of key themes which, once combined, will bring lasting and significant changes to Central Salford.

Building on strengths
With the aim of building on Central Salford’s strengths, a number of key priority areas have been identified: the Chapel Street Corridor, Salford Central Station, Pendleton, the Quays / Canal District and the Irwell Corridor.

Green spaces and tree-lined boulevards
A network of newly paved, green, tree-lined streets will be established within Central Salford, in order to strengthen the connections and movement between communities.

Stunning riverside developments
An interconnected river and open space system will renew the life and vibrancy of the River Irwell and will re-integrate the river system with parks and open spaces. A continuous walk along the river’s edge will provide new opportunities for walking and cycling.

Investing in the heart of Salford
A focus on Chapel Street will re-establish a strong and distinctive centre for Central Salford and revitalise the street quality, encouraging new commercial, leisure and retail investment. The renewal of Chapel Street will connect the economic heart of Manchester to the city of Salford.

Connected communities
Fundamental improvements to Central Salford’s transport routes will enable greater movement within the city, establishing an attractive city core and supporting the connectivity of neighbouring communities.

Felicity Goodey, Chair, Central Salford URC said: “This Vision is built on the natural beauty of people and places in Salford, assets which have for too long been hidden under the dereliction and poverty with which the City has been grappling since the end of the industrial revolution.”

Central Salford URC’s work is delivered in partnership with the community and the many other agencies that are working hard to boost the health, education, skills and employment opportunities of the local population.

Feedback on the Draft Vision and Regeneration Framework for Central Salford is being received through a collective of community groups and representatives who will be hosting a number of consultation and stakeholder events. Responses can also be submitted to the Central Salford website at www.centralsalford.com . More details about the consultation events and a summary of the Draft Vision and Regeneration Framework are also available to download from the Central Salford website. The final Vision and Regeneration Framework will be published in Autumn 2005.

The tower in that last picture has something of the CJC in it.

I like the environment focus of the Draft Vision from the URC. Makes a change from the 'lets build lots of new flats' approach

With attitudes like yours, maybe 'the Jews' need a bit of positive 'religionist' discrimination (whatever that is).

Ask yourself

positive discrimination? how does that work?

Your saying we need to discriminate them more?

how could your figure what kind of attitude i had?

and whats wrong with building houses for the jews anyway. Theyre sensible people and know what they want and get it. Is there anything wrong with that?

To be honest, your original comments were completely discriminatory. Against Jews, Chavs and Salford. In whichever order.

What's all that about?

Its not for "The Jews" at all, its for local residents that already live round there and any new ones that want to move in, my mate lives round the corner and as far as I know current residents have the first shout if they are interested. His mum and dad are Irish incase you were wondering. Its mostly Caucasians of English/British or Irish descent or Africans round there now, the Jews live in totally different parts of Manchester, namely Prestwich and Whitefield

Can't agree with you there. That area of Higher Broughton adjacent to Brougton Park is probably the most concentrated area of North Manchester's Jewish community. Very orthodox Jews as well so very clearly Jewish on a Friday. There is no bar on anyone buying the new houses, but I would be surprised if many were not bought by North Manchester's affluent Jewish community - and good luck to them. They help the area and North Manchester as a whole in economic terms. You won't find any ASBOs against the Jewish community that's for sure.
