Bellway Homes’ plans for a new residential development on land at Campbell Road in Swinton have been given the go-ahead by Salford City Council’s Planning Committee.

Manchester based HOW Planning submitted a full planning application for 241 new homes and a community park in excess of 20 ha, which secured resolution to grant planning approval at Salford Council’s committee on 10 May 2018.

The new scheme will be built on the former Swinton Waste Water Treatment Works which was decommissioned over 25 years ago and has since sat as a vacant brownfield site. The approved development provides a combination of 3 and 4 bedroom new homes including 52 affordable dwellings to help meet local needs.

Plans also include comprehensive infrastructure improvements as well as extensive public green space and community park to the south of the site.

Says James Berggren, Senior Planner at HOW Planning: “It’s been great working with Bellway Homes on a scheme that will significantly contribute towards Salford’s local housing needs and will transform a vacant site within Swinton into an attractive residential development, with the added benefit of creating a substantial new community park that will be used by both the immediate and wider community.”

The site is well placed to conveniently access services and shops on Monton Road, located 1.6km to the south, and other facilities in both Swinton and Eccles town centres to the North and South respectively.
