Introducing the Strategic Regeneration Framework
The emerging masterplan and the key ‘guiding principles’ for the redevelopment relating to development zones, amount of development, building heights, architecture, blue and green infrastructure, maximising visual and sustainable travel will be brought together in the draft Strategic Regeneration Framework.
The joining up of hospital services, mental health, intermediate and community services, and primary care in one location will help these services to work in tandem and aid the smooth transfer of patients from one part of the system to another. This will offer local people tailored services that will enable them to get well and stay well. Such services will help address the longstanding health inequalities in local communities in North Manchester.
Redevelopment of the hospital site should deliver a range of facilities and land uses whose co-location and integration should facilitate the highest level of medical care. This is an unparalleled opportunity to build a modern healthcare environment which should not only serve the hospital and patients but also the wider community in Crumpsall and North Manchester.
