Businesses and members of the public are invited to contribute to the future of the Salford Crescent area, following the opening of consultation on a £2.5bn masterplan.
A new draft development framework was announced earlier this month, following the earlier appointment of English Cities Fund as development partner by Salford City Council and The University of Salford.
ECF, a joint venture between Homes England, Legal & General and Muse Developments, is looking to take forward a 240-acre major regeneration programme to be delivered over the next 20 years.
The masterplan breaks down the site into six zones: the Transport Hub and Parks & River area joining zones promoted in a 2018 draft, namely the Innovation Zone, Peel Park Campus, The Crescent and the Adelphi Village, the latter two of which would be residential-led.
That earlier draft, prepared by 5plus Architects, was never formally adopted, bringing about the need for a refreshed masterplan.
Further details on the make-up and general intentions of the masterplan’s different zones can be viewed on the consultation website.
Consultation opened on 20 October and will run until 1 December.
