Salford continues to grow apace as more investment floods into the city.

With a number of achievements already under its belt such as the £550 million Media City UK development at Salford Quays, the completion of Greengate Square which is set to trigger another £400 million in private sector investment and the ongoing revitalization along Chapel Street, Bridgewater Canal and the River Irwell, the latest good news for the area are the plans to build 40,000 new homes and create 40,000 new jobs by 2040.

These ambitious plans will put City Centre Salford, Salford Quays, MediaCity UK and the Western Gateway at the forefront of economic growth in the North West region and add further momentum to the complete transformation of the area.

Over the last decade Salford has enjoyed over £3 billion of private sector investment, fully taking advantage of its superb location and access to skilled professionals.

Salford has a strong vision for its future. A vision that includes:

  • A £200 million programme to improve high school facilities
  • Development of an integrated transport system
  • The promotion of new international investment opportunities through vehicles such as Invest India and the Manchester China Forum
  • The transformation of the city skyline to encourage more new building
  • A planned strategy for more affordable homes

Salford is firmly positioning itself as a city of creativity, culture and sport. Nearly 7 million visitors came to Salford in 2011, bringing £479 million to the area, raising the profile of the city both on a national and international front. Salford is brimming with confidence at the moment and this is a great time for investors in the city.
