Green light for new world class Royal Horticultural Society garden

Barton Willmore’s planning application, submitted in December for the Royal Horticultural Society’s (RHS) fifth Garden, has been given the go ahead from Salford Councillors.

The 150+ acre site on designated Green Belt land, to be known as RHS Garden Bridgewater, is part of the RHS’ 10 year £160 million investment programme and will bring back to life the site of the former Worsley New Hall.

Vincent Ryan, planning director from Barton Willmore said: “This is an excellent result today and is testament to the commitment of the RHS and considerable efforts of its consultant team, working closely with Council officers, to formulate these exciting proposals. This is just the start of a process that will see years of hard work on the ground to deliver a truly exceptional garden that the people of Salford can be proud of.”

Salford City Council’s resolution now means that the planning application will be referred to the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government. The referral process will take up to 21 days and if the Secretary of State is content that the decision can be made locally, Salford will be free to issue the planning permission. The Garden will be developed in phases over a 5-10 year period.

The revival of a site of this scale represents one of the largest contemporary gardening projects in Europe and will result in the creation of a world class horticultural visitor attraction and vibrant community resource for local people. It is expected to see visitor numbers reach between 600-700,000 by 2029 and see the creation of 140 jobs.
