KARL posted an article in LocalAfter controversially (See Salford Star Article Here) turning down planning permission in July 2018, Salford Council has today (Thursday, September 6 2018) finally approved plans for the multi-million pound Canon Green Campus development on Canon Green Drive in Trinity. Previously the Council had rejected the application with Councillors declaring that it was "Odd", "Wierd" and even "Bonkers" that the council would reject affordable housing in the area whilst at the same meeting giving Countryside Properties the green light for 299 private rent apartments more or less around the corner in Broughton. The good news is that finally the £22.5m project by Salford housing association Salix Homes will see ageing tower block Canon Green Court completely transformed and modernised, along with neighbouring apartment block Westminster House, which will undergo an external facelift. As part of the development, a brand new 11-storey apartment block will be built within the grounds of the expansive site, comprising of 108 one and two-bedroom affordable apartments. Lee Sugden, chief executive at Salix Homes, said: The refurbishment at Canon Green Court, which was built during the 1960s, includes new kitchens, bathrooms, heating systems, sprinkler systems and exterior re-facing and insulation. Salix Homes, which owns more than 8,000 homes across Salford, will now appoint a contractor to carry out the project and it’s hoped that work will start on site later this year.
