As per the plans, the Manchester, Bolton and Bury Canal, which bisects the site, will be subject to environmental improvements and woodland planting to transform into a green focal feature.

Scarborough Development director Lee Savage said: "Middlewood Locks is a huge site which has the potential to create a thriving new neighbourhood for Salford, bringing an opportunity for a range of homes and jobs."

The developer is in plans to submit a planning application for the scheme in early 2013, which is expected to bring about £15m to the local and regional economy.

Scarborough’s project team for the development includes architects Studio Egret West and development consultants RED Property Service.

In October 2012, Scarborough had submitted a planning application to Leeds City Council in the United Kingdom for a £400m mixed-use development at Thorpe Park, near Junction 46 of the M1 motorway.
