Planning permission secured for a residential development on Hebden Avenue, Salford

Planning permission has been granted for a residential apartment development on Hebden Avenue, Salford, designed by architecture practice Falconer Chester Hall.

The site was previously occupied by a single storey youth centre, which was demolished over 15 years ago. Falconer Chester Hall’s design is set back from the road in-line with other properties along Hebden Avenue, creating a front garden for residents, the site also incorporates a one-bedroom bungalow.

Director Quentin Keohane commented, “This was a challenging site to develop given its unusual shape, steep topography, and close proximity to adjacent properties. With the client we have brought forward a scheme that provides modern apartments and a bungalow within carefully landscaped gardens and ample amenity space.”

Brian McGorry, Empowered Homes said, “we could see the potential of Hebden Avenue and the requirements of the area to provide an innovative development on this derelict site. We are delighted with the final design and on securing planning permission.”

Other consultants include Zerum (planning), SCP and Crookes Walker
