A major regeneration of a 74-hectare estate consisting of 3,500 new homes, the Lower Broughton development helped create a successful, sustainable neighbourhood which is safe, healthy, and economically active.
A key commitment for Lower Broughton’s regeneration was ensuring the development created significant employment and skills training opportunities for the local area. A bespoke Employment and Skills plan was implemented, maximising openings for local people and businesses in the area.
The local Employment and Skills plan created a significant legacy for the community in New Broughton, helping to boost the community’s skills, confidence and capacity into the long-term future.
The overall development concept and strategy was formulated by Countryside in consultation with Salford City Council, working collaboratively to create a shared vision for the project.
Through a joint commitment to regenerating more than just the local area's housing, the project team secured investment in local infrastructure to support local community needs. This included the development of a new primary school, the provision of community green spaces, high quality landscaping and floodwater compensation storage.
Anti-social behaviour and crime have been tackled through the use of imaginative urban planning, with new homes being designed around central courtyards, based on the principles of Secured by Design. There is a clear focus on creating safe and inclusive community spaces through tenure-blind design standards.
