Plans have progressed for the creation of 35 affordable and move-on homes in Salford, thanks to a grant from the Greater Manchester Combined Authority. Salford City Council is taking action to address the shortage of affordable housing in the city and the growing issue of homelessness. The Eccles New Road and Tootal sites will provide 35 homes, including 16 for those at risk of rough sleeping. Construction has already begun on the Eccles New Road site, with completion expected in 2024. The design and layout of the properties have been influenced by individuals who have experienced homelessness. Councillor Tracy Kelly, Deputy City Mayor, emphasized the importance of affordable supported accommodation in helping people rebuild their lives. With over 4,900 households on Salford’s housing need list, the provision of more affordable housing is crucial to the community.
