A little bit about

Netherland Street P2

Netherland St Phase 2, which received planning permission in March 2019, will see the construction of a further 43 homes for affordable and social rent, including 14 cottage flats and 29 two and three-bedroom houses.

All properties will have landscaped front and rear gardens, with 48 parking spaces available for residents.

The homes are being funded by Great Places Housing Group through its strategic partnership with Homes England and upon completion they will meet the local need for affordable and social rent homes.

Grays Architecture has overseen the design of the entire scheme, with AA Projects acting as employer’s agent.

Rob Watson, Director at Watson Homes, said: “We’re thrilled to be working once again with Great Places Housing Group and Mangrove Estates to deliver yet more affordable homes in Salford, while contributing to the overall regeneration of this key Northern city.

Helen Spencer, Director of Development at Great Places Housing Group, commented: “The second phase of Netherland Street is another significant step towards providing much needed additional affordable housing in Salford.

“Great Places is committed to this neighbourhood and will continue to work with the community on a variety of initiatives. We recognise that affordable homes are a key priority for the city and the continuation of this development will provide just that. As a developer, we’re always on the lookout for land to build additional affordable housing in the areas we operate in.”

Michael Sparkes at Mangrove Estates, added: “Following on from the success of phase one we are delighted to be working alongside Great Places, Watson Homes, Grays Architecture & AA Projects to provide a further 43 affordable homes in the area.”

The development is within close proximity to the centre of Salford and MediaCityUK, benefitting from local amenities and strong public transport links, including local rail stations, buses and the Metrolink.
