Housing and new development
Major changes have taken place in Charlestown and Lower Kersal.
Schemes such as block improvements and alleygating really made a difference to people's lives, with funding from NDC and the Manchester-Salford Housing Market Renewal Fund helping to transform terraced blocks throughout the area as part of the Manchester Salford Pathfinder. Environmental improvements have seen the addition of parking and play facilities, as well as road widening and the implementation of safety measures. New homes are also in the planning, with a number of homes already completed at Unity Quarter on the former Kersal High School site, and many more due to be built in the next 10 years, working with our developer partners Miller Homes and Inspired Developments,
Please note that important changes were made in 2008 to the plans to redevelop the Lower Kersal Riverside site, which means that most residents in that particular area will no longer be affected by the redevelopment plans.
