Salford’s planning and transportation regulatory committee this week resolved to follow a recommendation from officers to grant permission for detailed plans for the second phase of the redevelopment of the 15-hectare site at Salford Quays.
Planning officers said that the detailed plans submitted by Peel Media UK would complement the business uses approved in the first phase.
Officers said they were satisfied in their recommendations that the proposed buildings would fulfil "the objective to deliver a truly mixed-use area where people want to live, work, learn and invest".
The designs for the buildings extend over eight plots and include 51,506 square metres of further business use, 4,280 square metres of live/work units, 4,429 square metres of retail space and more than 1,800 car parking spaces.
The decision also grants full permission for a proposal for a market and event space.
The permission includes planning conditions, including to upgrade a junction to prevent queuing traffic on South Langworthy Road creating delays for Metrolink trams, and to provide details of a scheme for two cycle hubs.
