The final handover has been completed at the Spinners Quarter development by Lovell Together – a joint venture between Lovell Partnerships and Together Housing Group.

Located in Pendleton, Salford, the development has been part of one of the largest strategic residential regeneration projects in Greater Manchester.

Started in early 2021, Lovell Together has designed and delivered 127 two, three- and four-bedroom properties; 17 of which are affordable homes for social rent.

It comes as planning permission was recently granted for the next phase in the regeneration of Pendleton, including the building of 485 energy efficient homes and the major transformation of Clarendon Park.

Tahreen Shad, regional partnerships director at Lovell, said: “This is a proud moment for our first Lovell Together development, seeing the final homes now completed at Spinners Quarter and achieving great results within the scheme.

“Not only have we been able to provide much needed affordable housing, but this development has also rejuvenated the local area in line with Salford Council’s vision.

“We really wanted this development to cater for a diverse range of people and align with local housing needs, so including wheelchair accessible homes and properties for social rent was an essential part of that. The additional improvements to the landscape around the site will also help to instil real pride in the area and improve desirability for the future.”

The properties are a mixture of mews and semi-detached homes and have been built to considerably higher building regulation standards using enhanced fabric thermal improvements.

Furthermore, a selection of the homes have internal space that meet the Lifetime Homes Standard and more than 20% of the affordable homes have been designed to include wheelchair accessible requirements.

The scheme centres on a high-quality public realm throughout the heart of the development and several innovative features such as a cycle street linking into wider Salford cycle routes, rain gardens – planted areas on the main street to help with natural drainage – and adjacent allotments.

Mark Dunford, executive director of finance and commercial at Together Housing Group, said: “Seeing the final homes complete on this dynamic site is fantastic. Lovell Together is a partnership we’re very proud of and the work we’re doing so far to provide high quality homes which meet the diverse needs of the local community comes at a time when many are facing inequalities of the current housing market.
