Plans go ahead for development of Walkden Town Centre

Salford City Council has approved plans to redevelop part of Walkden Town Centre. Acting on behalf of the Albert Gubay Charitable Foundation, Derwent Estates submitted plans to demolish circa 180,000 sq ft of the current retail space within Egerton Walk and Victoria Square. Advised by Savills planning department, the plans also included the construction of a contemporary new façade providing a new entrance to the Centre with landscaped public realm space to the front.

Scott Hall, Asset Manager at Derwent Estates said: “We fully understand the importance of Walkden Town Centre to the local area, which is why we have taken this proactive decision to significantly improve its current offering to create a more contemporary and attractive yet sustainable environment for both retailers and visitors. We recognise the changing attitudes and expectations of all stakeholders, which is why these plans are so imperative to ensuring a vibrant future for the Centre.”

Designed by architectural practice, RGP, Derwent Estates will now look to appoint a contractor to carry out the demolition works and is currently liaising with tenants as part of its relocation programme. The scheme is being project managed by Artal. Barker Proudlove and Graham Sibbald are the retained letting agents.
