In Summer 2017 Salford City Council and The University of Salford appointed 5plus architects and CBRE to prepare the Crescent Masterplan. The initial Masterplan vision, objectives and proposals were subject to consultation during August-September 2018 and an overview of responses received can be viewed here.

Following a rigorous procurement process which commenced in May 2019, Salford City Council and University of Salford appointed the English Cities Fund as Private Sector Partner to deliver the Masterplan in March 2020.


The original vision and objectives have now been revised to take on board the latest thinking of the Partners. Public consultation on the revised Vision and Objectives took place over the period 6th July-3rd August. Further details on the Development Framework Consultation can be found here.
