Adelphi Lads Club soon became the go-to Salford sun trap when it opened its doors back in June, however recent plans show that the site will be demolished to pave the way for a new residential scheme. 

Reform Developments bought the space earlier in the year for £1m and is now working alongside an architect to draw up and finalise proposals for the Salford site. 

The club, which has sat in the same space since the early 1900s, will be knocked down and replaced with 19 three-bedroom houses.

The site also already has planning consent for the construction of 32 apartments in a five-storey block, however, Reform has chosen to revert these early proposed plans put forward by developer, Knightbridge.

Adelphi Lads Club closed in 2008 and was damaged by a fire two years later. Following Reform’s acquisition, the site reopened as a bar earlier over summer, hosting DJs and parties at the spot every week.

DPP Planning is advising Reform on its proposals.
