Salix Homes works in partnership with Salford City Council and other key partners to deliver housing led regeneration and renewal services in Central Salford. Relevant teams within Salix Homes are responsible for a wide range of renewal activities including the delivery of key elements of the Housing Market Renewal programme.Housing Market Renewal Programme
The Manchester Salford Pathfinder (MSP) was a partnership established between Manchester and Salford City Councils in 2003 to develop and coordinate a long term strategic programme to restructure the housing market in the parts of both Cities that have suffered from severe population loss and a declining housing market. The partnership was established as part of the government's Housing Market Renewal Pathfinder programme.
The challenge for MSP, the City Council, Salix Homes and its partners is to create new neighbourhoods of choice across Central Salford - thrivig, attractive areas where people choose to live, work and invest. To date the government has approved £123 million for the first seven years of the long term programme to deliver this renewal in Central Salford.
