First Council Houses to be built in Salford for Three Decades

Great news that nearly 1000 council homes are to be bought, built and managed by Salford Council by 2021.

Social housing is desperately needed across the country, and this is a fantastic start to the ambitious targets the council will be pursuing to address the UK housing crisis here in Salford.

This is also a fitting tribute to the legacy of Paul Longshaw, who wanted to find a way to build new social houses when he joined the council in 2016, after spending his life leading the regeneration of Pendleton. He believed that a decent, secure and quality home was a human right, and new social homes in Salford will start to deliver that.
