Henley Investment Management Ltd Announces Plans to Redevelop Regent Retail Park

  • Members of the public are being invited to have their say on exciting plans to transform part of the Regent Retail Park into a new neighbourhood and public park for Salford.
  • Public consultation launches on Monday 27 February and marks the first stepping stone in Henley’s bid to deliver a safe, green, inclusive new neighbourhood.
  • The plans will deliver Salford’s first new city park for decades, with approximately five acres of green space, together with walkways, cycleways and one, two and three bed homes.

Members of the public are being invited to have their say on exciting plans to transform Regent Retail Park into Regent Park: Salford’s new neighbourhood.

Henley acquired the retail park, which sits on the border of Salford and Manchester, in October 2020 and recognised that regeneration is needed to ensure the site continues to meet the needs of the local community. As such, Henley is now bringing forward proposals to redevelop the retail units, between Costa Coffee and TK Maxx, into a new green neighbourhood.

A modern new neighbourhood in close proximity to local services, Regent Park will provide attractive new homes to help meet the housing demand of a growing population, centred around a new urban park. The park, Salford’s first for decades, will run through the heart of the development, with approximately five acres of open space for people to enjoy.

The development will continue to serve as a  Neighbourhood Centre for Salford, and will provide a multitude of shops, cafes, restaurants, and leisure uses that closely meet the needs of the local community – now and in the future.

The vision for the site:

At the heart of our placemaking-led, people-first vision for Regent Park is a new urban park, which will provide much-needed green space for Salford residents. Our Masterplan creates a safe, walkable and inclusive neighbourhood where nature and architecture work together harmoniously, fostering a community that prioritises liveability and wellbeing

Matt Brook – Founding Director, Matt Brook Architects

Warwick Hunter, [MD Development and Head of ESG] at for Henley said:

“Henley is excited to bring forward this unique development that connects communities, activities and amenities in one sustainable new space that balances the needs, aspirations and ideas of the growing Salford population.

“We want a place that is fit for the community it serves, that fosters growth and that people can be proud to call home. We look forward to hearing people’s views on the emerging proposals and using that feedback to help develop our designs into a space that people want.”

The first round of public consultation will commence on Monday 27th February and last until Wednesday 15th March. Local residents and businesses will be able to learn more about the proposals and have their say by:

  • Visiting the consultation website and completing a feedback form at www.regentparkconsultation.co.uk
  • Registering to attend an online webinar via the website on the evening of Wednesday 1st March and Tuesday 7th March.
  • Emailing comments and questions to [email protected]
  • Speaking with a member of the dedicated community information line on 0161 711 0293 (Monday to Friday, 9:00am – 5:00pm)

This is just the first stage of developing the plans for Regent Park – the public will have another opportunity to have their say on a more refined scheme when the second stage of consultation is held around spring time.
