Salford City Council - Record of Decision
I Paul Dennett, City Mayor, in exercise of the powers contained within the Salford City Council Constitution do hereby approve (i) the drawdown of the Council owned land at Plot E7/E8 Chapel Street by English Cities fund in accordance with the provisions of the Overarching Development Agreement for Salford Central, (ii) the subsidy from the Development Trust Account for the Salford Central project set up to utilise surpluses from more viable phases of the Salford Central project to cross subsidise less viable sites and (iii) the shared legal service complete the legal documentation.
The Reasons are to progress the next phase of development along Chapel Street in accordance with the Overarching Development Agreement between the Council and English Cities fund and to ensure less viable phases are delivered across the wider project. The variable heights, quality of materials and finishes, enhanced public realm and complexities in building over the existing BT tunnel and access located on this site have increased costs to the extent where cross subsidy from the Development Trust Account is required. There is also additional grant funding secured from the government’s Housing Infrastructure Fund to assist with the development of the site.
