Town Centre West Strategic Regeneration Framework Consultation pdf icon PDF 59 KB

To consider a report of the Corporate Director for Place Management & Regeneration

 

The Council has established a long-term ambition for the future of Town Centre West which it is delivering through a number of development schemes, policies, and initiatives which will collectively help maximise the area’s potential.  Over recent months the Council has been working with specialist regeneration, urban design, and transport planning consultants to develop a Strategic Regeneration Framework (SRF) for Town Centre West which articulates a comprehensive overall vision and ambition for the area. 

 

The draft Strategic Regeneration Framework is intended to inspire, excite and engage with existing and future residents and businesses as well as with developers and investors.  It sets out a vision, masterplan, and delivery strategy for how Town Centre West could be reshaped over the next ten to fifteen years as Greater Manchester’s newest, greenest, and coolest affordable urban neighbourhood.

 

The Scrutiny Committee is invited to:

 

·         note the timescales of the consultation on the draft Strategic Regeneration Framework;

·         comment on the draft Strategic Regeneration Framework as part of the formal consultation process;

·         note that a the final Strategic Regeneration Framework document will be submitted to Economy and Regeneration Scrutiny Committee Members for comment in October before being submitted to Cabinet in November for approval;

·         note that the final Strategic Regeneration Framework will inform the annual business plan of the Mayoral Development Corporation;

·         note that the final Strategic Regeneration Framework will form the basis of a Supplementary Planning Document to be produced over winter 2019/20.
