More than 200 new affordable homes are set be built across Little Hulton, Weaste and Charlestown in the largest council housing scheme in 50 years.

The new development, headed by Pendleton Together, is set to see two-, three- and four-bedroomed houses and apartments built across the three towns by Dérive, a development company wholly owned by Salford City Council.

Pendleton Together already support just under 200 homes, with another 50 expected to be built before Christmas, and the remaining 150 later in 2024/2025.

Julie Blagden, Senior Operations Manager at Pendleton Together, said: “Pendleton Together has been managing properties in Salford for ten years and is a trusted social landlord, managing properties that more than 1.5k Salfordians call home.

“We’re passionate about the future of Salford so it’s exciting to be at the heart of the work and we’re delighted Derive have put their trust in us to manage their properties going forward.”

Deputy Mayor of Salford Councillor Tracy Kelly, who is also a Director at Dérive, said: “Having quality homes that are fit for the future is priority in Salford and Dérive are developing them to the highest environmental standards. Development and management of properties go hand-in-hand, so I’m delighted to partner with Pendleton Together again to deliver this important service.”

Homes will be offered to people in housing need through Salford Home Search using the city’s agreed allocations policy.
