Seddon Construction is to build 66 homes on the site of the former St Luke’s CE Primary School in Weaste under plans from the city council.
The development will include 32 houses and 36 apartments on a three-acre plot off Eccles New Road.
PRP is the architect for the project.
St Luke moved to a larger school on West Lane in 2016 and has been vacant ever since. The former school is to be demolished later in the year.
The development is part of Salford City Council’s plan to build 3,000 homes for residents over the next decade.
The authority signed the first 400 in principle in December last year.
Other schemes within the broader project include:
- 45 homes on the site of the former Irwell Valley High School
- 177 homes on Longshaw Drive in Little Hulton
- 41 homes on Ryall Avenue South
- 51 homes on The Green in Clifton
- 25 homes within Step Places and Salix Homes Kara Street development in Langworthy
Of the homes, 188 will be available for social rent, 127 for affordable rent, 52 for the privately rented sector and 50 will be sold privately.
The intention is that apart from the small number of units that will be for sale, the homes will eventually be taken under the control of Dérive, Salford City Council’s subsidiary.
