Salford City Council - Record of Decision

 

I Paul Dennett, City Mayor, in exercise of the powers contained within the City Council Constitution do hereby notes the contents of this report and approves the Crescent Strategic Master Programme and Delivery.

The Reasons are:

In March 2020 the City Council and University appointed the English Cities Fund (ECF) as Private Sector Partner to deliver the Crescent Masterplan. The Partners had subsequently signed an Overarching Umbrella Agreement (OUA) to manage implementation of the Crescent Masterplan, which was currently conditional upon ECF preparing a new planning framework for the Crescent area and the approval by the Partners of the Strategic Master Programme and Delivery  Plan (SMPDP) to demonstrate how the programme would be brought forward over the next 10 years and beyond.

 

The Crescent Development Framework was endorsed in January 2021 and ECF had submitted the SMPDP to the Council and University for approval on 1st March 2021 and in turn would result in the OUA becoming unconditional and taking full effect, providing  ECF with the contractual certainty needed to begin the process of preparing Site Business Plans for the various sites across the Crescent area, the first of which is to be submitted within 6 months from this approval being given.
