A new Draft Development Framework has now been prepared by the partners setting out proposals for future development across the Crescent area.

Salford City Council and the University of Salford have appointed The English Cities Fund (a Joint Venture between Homes England, Legal & General and national urban regenerator, Muse Developments) as development partner to deliver the Crescent masterplan – a £2.5bn, 240-acre major regeneration programme, which will be delivered over the next 20 years.

It represents one of the largest development opportunities in the country and is the next major key development in the continuation of regeneration taking place across the city.

The ambition is to celebrate and enhance the area’s wealth of green, blue, cultural and heritage assets and establish strong physical links between the university campus and surrounding communities to create a vibrant, modern and connected new city district rich in culture, innovation and activity.

The initial Masterplan proposals developed by 5plus architects in 2018 have now been tested and reviewed by Salford City Council, the University of Salford and the English Cities Fund.

A new Draft Development Framework has been prepared, which sets out proposals for future development across the area. This will be subject to public consultation from 20 October to 1 December 2020.
