Pendleton regeneration project in UK

Salford City Council in the UK has selected the SP+ consortium, led by Together Housing Group member Chevin Housing Association, for a £115m regeneration project in Pendleton, Greater Manchester.

The SP+ consortium was selected after a four-year tender process that involved consultation with the Pendleton community.

Under the project, the developer will create 1,600 new homes and refurbish 1,200 existing homes.

The development will include 1ha of new sports pitches, 9.2ha of green space, 0.4ha of new allotment space, and 2.7km of new paths and cycle ways.

Salford councillor and lead member for housing and environment Gena Merrett said that the scheme will provide much anticipated regeneration in the area.

"The plans put forward by the preferred bidder not only build new housing, they will also make the most of what is already there, refurbishing some of the existing properties and creating parks and green space that will create a much nicer environment for local residents to enjoy," Merrett said.

The consortium is expected to submit a full planning application in the summer, with construction work scheduled to start later in 2012.

The process to regenerate Pendleton started in 2003 when the council consulted with local residents who agreed for a private finance initiative to make improvements to the area.
