Acting on behalf of FICM Ltd, the property company headed by Fred Done, our client Euan Kellie Property Solutions has secured planning permission from Salford City Council to create Trinity, a new development of 380 apartments and townhouses at the junction of Trinity Way and Blackfriars, Salford.  It will be the first large PRS (private rented sector) scheme to be built in Greater Manchester.

Designed by 5plus Architects, Trinity includes a range of one, two and three-bedroom apartments and seven townhouses.  The grade II-listed Black Friars pub will form a distinctive entrance to the development and is integral to the design.

Euan Kellie Property Solutions led the Planning Application process, along with SPC Project Managers, for the scheme which will be built, retained and managed by FICM Ltd.  Once constructed the homes will be available for rent.

Euan Kellie, director, Euan Kellie Property Solutions said: “Trinity is an exceptional development, geared towards the private rental sector.  Working alongside 5plus Architects, FCIM Ltd and Salford City Council, we are pleased to have gained planning consent and look forward to seeing it complete.”

Simon Ismail, director, FICM said: “Gaining planning permission for Trinity is a very significant step to bring the vision for the development to reality.  Trinity is in the heart of the original Salford, it is where we are all from and we all feel a sense of responsibility to create something very special that we can be proud of.

“We’ve had the best team available on the project and the passion, flair and drive they possess has helped us get to this point and we look forward to bringing 5plus Architects designs to life.”

Councillor Derek Antrobus, assistant mayor for strategic planning at Salford City Council, said: “The City Council has stayed faithful to its vision for bringing life back to central Salford and invested in infrastructure to make that happen. This is another great example of our commitment bearing fruit.”
