In Summer 2017 Salford City Council and The University of Salford appointed 5plus architects and CBRE to prepare the Salford Crescent and University District 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, the 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 has now commenced. For further details about the consultation process and timescales for submitting comments, please see the ‘Public consultation’ section of this website.
