International developer plans Greengate flats
PNW: http://www.placenorthwest.co.uk/news...eengate-flats/

June 4, 2015
Jessica Swettenham


Quote:
A planning application is due to be submitted later this month by Sloane International Developments for a 310-apartment scheme in Greengate, Salford.

The scheme, called Norton Court, is being designed by Jeffrey Bell Architects and comprises two residential blocks on a car park site near to the River Irwell and the Abito Tower.

The apartments would be a mix of one-, two- and three-bedroom flats.

The proposals are currently out for public consultation, with a full planning application due to be submitted later this month.

According to an information leaflet issued by Sloane: “If approved, the scheme would deliver a range of much needed high quality housing, provide further investment in this area of Salford and support the wider regeneration aspirations of the city.”

Salford City Council’s Greengate regeneration strategy outlines plans to provide around 1,826 new homes in the area over the next 15 years. Select Property Group was recently granted planning permission for a 260-apartment block on Chapel Street.

Sloane International is a privately owned and financed property company with offices in the UK, the Middle East and Asia, affiliated with student property development company Hill & Standard.

Indigo Planning is advising Sloane on the application.

All parties declined or were unavailable to comment.

Manchester will be the first place in the country to offer GP access on a Sunday.

Seven day GP access for everyone in Greater Manchester unveiled
as part of historic NHS devolution deal

Manchester Evening News: http://www.manchestereveningnews.co....eryone-9419516

June 10th, 2015
Dean Kirkby


Quote:
Every patient will get seven-day access to a family doctor under a radical £15m plan to boost the health of the Greater Manchester’s 2.8 million people.

Bosses behind the region’s £6bn NHS devolution plans are driving forward a massive bid to fling open the doors of doctors’ surgeries at evenings and weekends in a move they believe will also slash A&E waiting times at the region’s overstretched hospitals.

A trial of the scheme covering 500,000 patients across Greater Manchester has already engineered a three per cent cut in hospital visits.

Health and social care bosses will now expand the scheme to EVERYONE so that those in needs of medical help will get same-day access to a doctor, supported by diagnostic tests, seven days a week.

Simon Stevens, the chief executive of NHS England, said: “This welcome ambition shows how devolution can produce real world gains for patients right across Greater Manchester.”

The radical and far-reaching scheme, unveiled today at a summit meeting of GPs in Salford, could be launched at the end of this year as hospital chiefs prepare for another hectic winter.

Every hospital in the region failed its A&E waiting targets last winter as medics battled to cope with unprecedented pressure on their services.

The GP access scheme - seen as an ‘early win’ for the region’s devolution hopes - also includes plans to boost social care to tackle delays in discharging people from hospital, which saw hundreds stranded on wards and blocking beds last winter.

AnIco's updates.

Looks like work has started on the retail units/foundations beneath the building, which will act as an extension to the railway viaducts, making the whole scheme interact more with the street. The office blocks will sit on top of this:

There was nowt there today again. It's a really small site so I don't know why the top floors are smaller than the bottom and why it isn't at least a few stories higher. It's in the Triangle so screw Jacksons thingy and Vantage Quay residents. There is also a ton of useless car park (with a suspicious fire which burned more space recently) over the road so why isn't a bigger building plonked down there just yards away.

Metrolink Extension: Second City Crossing
Metro Line | Midtown

Miles: 1 | Number of stations: 3 | Developer: TfGM

Current Status: Under Construction

Thread: http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showth...6944&page=2041

A new line for the City Zone running between St Peter's Square and Victoria on the below map:





Map of the (very short) new line:




Updates by various contributors.

Freel07. This photo shows the tram line inbetween Victoria station (behind) and Exchange Square station.






Towards Victoria:







Exchange Square stop will be here:







St Peter's Square station will be here. This 4-platform station will form an interchange between trams to Piccadilly & Ashton, to Victoria & Bury/Rochdale/Oldham and Exchange Square.






It's all a bit of a mess at the moment:







Down the side of the Midland Hotel, where the Second City Crossing joins the existing (original city crossing) tram lines:

It's constantly being updated with pictures and information, and you can trace it way back to 2008, when work on trebling the size of Manchester's Metrolink network began.
