Next round of demolitions lined up for North Manchester General

An application has been lodged with the city council seeking approval to bring down a range of buildings as part of the 67-acre Crumpsall hospital estate’s overhaul.

DAY Architectural and AA Projects are leading the process, with forms now filed with Manchester City Council that request the right to demolish buildings providing these services:

  • Outpatients building
  • Antenatal building
  • Diabetes centre
  • Staff gym
  • Doctors’ residence
  • ID offices
  • Waste storage

The reason given for the demolition request is that “all the noted buildings have reached end-of-life status and are no longer fit for purpose without extensive refurbishment, which will only delay future demolition. Leaks, outdated services and ageing building materials affect all buildings.”

According to a site diagram filed with the application, the request concerns 10 separate structures across the site. Demolition will take five months, said DAY.

A site notice has been in place outlining the plans for demolition since December.

Learn more about the demolition by searching application reference number 139157/DEM/2024 on the Manchester City Council planning portal.

A Place North West video feature in October 2023 examined the masterplan for NMGH’s redevelopment in depth, looking at how a £36.5m enabling works and infrastructure programme, featuring a car park built by Morgan Sindall, is the first phase delivered in the Victorian estate’s rebirth.

I wonder what will be done about the 1900s houses in the same area, can you imaginen going through the rundown area to get to the newly modified building, i wonder if there is any money left in the pot to bring standards up in the area of Terraced houses nearby, just a thought and wishful thinking
