Green Lane Property Owner Plans Waterside Regeneration – Support, Support, Support

The owner of the Business and  Technology Centre on Green Lane is submitting plans to regenerate their property in line with the Bridgewater Master Plan initiative.  The property is opposite to the Sky Properties site, and such a plan can only be positive for the community and provides more weight to the argument against the nightmare incinerator.

The proposal includes a mix of residential housing and light commercial plans.  The development could bring many benefits to the local community including:

  • a mix of family housing
  • clean commercial uses
  • children’s play area
  • a new pedestrian foot bridge
  • a new Canal side walkway (at present private property consisting of derelict employment lands fronts the canal)
  • improved public realm along the canal and green lane – making stronger linkages between Monton and Liverpool Road
  • improved natural surveillance for the Canal and Green Lane – making new and existing spaces safer for all
  • improved sight lines and natural surveillance to Green Lane

Owner of the property, Peta Williams of Castletown Investments Ltd, has supported the Say No campaign for many months and now is our opportunity to do the same.  It’s time to “Say Yes” to the Green Lane Waterside Regeneration Plan.  The plan is well thought out, will bring inward investment and improve the immediate and surrounding areas.  In order to do this, we request that all supporters and members write to the Council in support of this proposal.   The site is already designated as a “swing site” by the Council. This means that it’s being assessed for possible re-zoning from purely employment. Let’s give our support in favour of re-zoning. What are we requesting?

We are requesting that:

  • This site be included in the the Bridgewater Masterplan Regeneration Project.
  • Site use is re-allocated for both residential as well as employment uses, under the Salford West Study and Bridgewater Masterplan.
