Plans for a new housing scheme in the rapidly-developing Middlewood Locks area of Salford have been approved by Salford Council.
National planning and development consultancy Lichfields delivered the permission on its behalf.
Nathan Matta, planning director at the Manchester office of Lichfields, said: “This development, alongside the large scale development of Middlewood Locks, has the potential to bring about the creation of a sustainable new community in this part of the city and to significantly enhance visual amenity and the mix of uses on the area.
“The development of this site will result in many positive regeneration benefits and will be seen as a catalyst for change in this important part of the city”.
The development will consist of a U-shaped block fronting onto Liverpool Street flanked by Muslin Street and Craven Street. It features a staggered height from 9 storeys, lowering to 6 storeys and will consist of 62 one-bed apartments, 57 two-bed apartments, and 8 three-bed apartments.
