Planning approved for 685 new homes on former golf course in Little Hulton, Salford

Brackley Golf Course site plan

Work to build 685 homes on the former Brackley Golf Course is set to start as Countryside, the UK’s leading mixed- tenure developer, and award-winning developer Bellway, were given the green light by Salford Council.

The developers will be working in collaboration on the site in Little Hulton, Salford, with Bellway delivering 343 homes and Countryside 342 homes that will range from two- bedroom semi-detached to four- bedroom detached houses.

Countryside will follow a mixed- tenure approach for their share, with homes being built for private sale and for rent, all of which will be built off-site at Countryside’s modular factory in Warrington.

Bellway will start construction of its new build homes later in the year, delivering a mix of two, three and four-bedroom properties from its stunning Artisan Collection.  Carefully considered, each Bellway home will benefit from luxury design features, boasting a superior internal and external specification.

As part of the development, the developers will be investing over £6million into the local community. This includes almost £2million in education contributions to local schools, over £3million for off site open space, as well as improvements to pedestrian infrastructure, public transport facilities and Amblecote Playing Fields.

Joe Turner, Managing Director, Manchester and Cheshire East, Countryside commented:

“We are delighted to be partnering with Bellway Homes to repurpose the vacant premises into brand new contemporary housing for Greater Manchester. The significant wider community investment will also ensure that the benefits of this development are extensive and far-reaching.

“Our continued commitment to our partnership model enables us to deliver the homes that people need in the areas that need them most. Together, we will create a sustainable community where people will love to live.”

Stuart Gray, Managing Director at Bellway Manchester, adds: “The plans to redevelop Brackley Golf Course with Countryside are impressive.  We are very much looking forward to getting started on site, bringing our Artisan Collection homes to Little Hulton.”

Work on Countryside’s homes will start imminently with first completions expected to be in April 2023.
