After a long process Wimpey and Redrow have finally gained planning permission to build in 243 new houses in Cadishead. The new homes are planned for the former industrial site on Hayes Road. The positive here is that construction will take place on brownfield land, rather than in the Greenbelt. It was hoped that the issue of building houses on Chat Moss disappeared with the new government's decision to abandon the crazy targets adopted by Salford under the old Regional Spatial Strategy. If you have been watching the news, however, you will know major house builders have challenged this decision,claiming the decision to cut the construction targets was unlawful. So there remains a possibility that Salford again will adopt a strategy to construct 10,000 new dwelling units in the city, with many 100s targeted for what is currently greenbelt land. Watch this space as they say, because it will probably get built upon if the housebuilders have their way.
