The public is being invited to look at the latest plans for the redevelopment of Salford Crescent, the joint project by Salford City Council and the University of Salford.

The project aims to bring together five different development zones to create a new city district with a world class centre of learning, collaboration and industry at its heart.

The masterplan has been drawn up by 5plus Architects and outlines a new innovation district with incubation space for business start-ups and SMEs, a new health village, new housing and a new Civic and Cultural gateway.

A key theme of the plans is to radical improve the public realm, establishing strong physical links with the surrounding communities with new walking and cycling routes connecting through the campus to the green assets of The Meadow and Peek Park.

The development will also see the construction of new student accommodation, improved and extended sports facilities, a conference centre and hotel, and food and drink outlets.
