Public-private partnership encourages Bright Sparks in Salford

Published:  30 June, 2011

SALFORD: A public-private partnership will see the refurbishment of a grade two listed building to create eight live-work units in a £1.7 million scheme that will retain business and investment in the local community.

Councillor Connor from Salford City Council said: “Spark Studio is a great example of the public and private sector working together to revive a landmark building and establish a live-work centre offering accommodation and workspace for budding entrepreneurs and the local community.”

There are four main project partners working together to deliver a complete service to the new residents while leading on their core area of service.

Contour Homes (a subsidiary of Symphony Housing Group) will be managing the ‘live’ element of the scheme. Developer Godliman-Watson Homes has already transformed neighbouring buildings and is looking forward to revitalising this particular listed building.
