Event Details:

The City of Salford, for too long viewed as an annex to Manchester, is a hive of urban regeneration and investment. Everywhere you look, transformational projects are being announced or coming out of the ground, firmly establishing Salford’s identity as an attractive, distinctive, inclusive and progressive city.

Salford Quays, a project that transformed the city’s industrial legacy, continues to grow. It is the subject of new plans for a ‘town centre’ that places people, wellbeing, creativity and inclusivity at the heart of its future plans.

MediaCity:UK continues to expand and is set to welcome further expansion of the BBC with Radio 3 and 6Music, along with digital and technology teams all relocating to the city.

Salford Crescent, a 100+ hectare site on the banks of the River Irwell, is the subject of a £2.5m masterplan led by English Cities Fund, described as one of Greater Manchester’s ‘signature schemes’ by Salford Chief Executive Tom Stannard. Plans have also been submitted for a multi-million pound pedestrian/cycle link, a ‘boulevard in the sky’ at Salford University Campus that links Salford Innovation Park with the people living to the north of Frederick Road.

New Bailey, a thriving business-led district characterised by innovative architecture that is building a unique sense of place, will soon be home to Eden, one of the UK’s most sustainable office buildings and an exemplar to the rest of the country.

At a smaller scale, but no less important to Salford’s distinctive, creative and inclusive cityscape, Islington Mill looks set to grow with the city after securing investment that will allow it to continue to provide a home for artists and creatives for years to come.

There is so much more going on across Salford. RHS Bridgewater, Port Salford, Middlewood Locks are just a few in a list of many transformational projects that are repositioning Salford as an ambitious, confident city with its own story to tell.

fbe Greater Manchester has brought together influential figures from Salford’s public sector, private sector, creative arts and civic institutions to discuss the ongoing transformation of the city. Our October event will include keynote presentations from Salford City Council and key investors, followed by a chaired panel discussion and audience Q&A.
