Development Management Committee 22nd June 2012 at Salford Quays
1. Introduction : Welcome from the Chairman and reference to the fact that the lat meeting at Salford was over 10 years ago.
Welcome from Hosts : Dave Jolley of Urban Vision (contractors to Salford MBC), outlined the background and planning history to Salford Quays, designated as an Enterprise Zone in 1981. Discussion centred around the importance of the EZ designation, which was recognised as being key to the areas regeneration. The original, accompanying development plan set out a key framework to guide development and required masterplans at various stages of redevelopment. A significant aim of the Quays regeneration has been to create a wide range and mix of uses to provide replacement jobs to those lost from previous large scale use of the area.
