Our Seedley & Langworthy

Seedley and Langworthy is a great place  to live. Situated in south-west Salford, it is  a well-connected community that has seen large-scale regeneration over the past decade.

Seedley and Langworthy is a neighbourhood that is mainly made up of families and  older people and is served by good local schools and retail provision, alongside two community resources at the Emmanuel  and Cornerstone centres.

Opportunities

  • Community assets including the Emmanuel and Cornerstone centres
  • Strong partnerships with local schools, other housing providers, Salford City Council and local residents
  • Good local retail amenities
  • Plenty of green space nearby including Langworthy and Buile Hill parks
  • Strong youth provision which can be further developed
  • Great transport links

“We need more police on the streets – I’ve had issues with nuisance kids, I’ve had my solar lights and plant pots stolen.”

“We need cleaner alleyways. They’re always full of rubbish and neighbours use other people’s bins. This means they’re often so full that the bin men won’t take them away.”

“I’m happy with the area, I wouldn’t change anything about it.”

“There are lots of cars and bikes up and down the street causing a noise nuisance. It’s not safe for my children to play out when there are people drinking and fighting in the street.”

Challenges:

Economic impact of a decade of government spending reduction

Higher than average rent arrears

Fly-tipping, especially in alleyways

Resident concerns about anti-social behaviour and knife crime

Environmental issues caused by fly-tipping and littering
