Client: McAleer & Rushe

Project: New Bailey Street

Location: Salford

Development: Mixed use hotel, office and retail scheme

Having worked with developers McAleer & Rushe on similar schemes in the past, TPS were appointed to work with architects Carey Jones on development proposals for a mixed use hotel, office and retail scheme on this high profile site in Salford.

The proposed development site forms part of the wider Salford Central regeneration area for which outline planning approval was granted in July 2009. Zone B of the Salford Central masterplan, within which New Bailey Street sits, is a 3.06 hectare ‘commercial quarter’ focussed on office use with ground floor commercial uses, hotel, multi storey car park and underground car parking, leisure uses and new public space.

The New Bailey Street development, being located across the river from the prestigious Spinningfields, will not only be a landmark building within this busy central area, but will importantly provide the gateway between Manchester City Centre and the rest of Salford Central.

In support of the development proposals being brought forward by McAleer & Rushe, TPS were appointed to prepare a Transport Assessment and Framework Travel Plan.

Following early discussions with the highway officers, it was established that the TA needed to illustrate how the New Bailey Street development would tie back in with assumptions made in the wider Salford Central Transport Assessment.

It was however identified that the New Bailey Street development was being brought forward prior to the preparation of a Salford Central Travel Plan Framework (as conditioned), and as such the ‘lower order’ travel plan now required would lead the way in this area of work.
