Working with The Christie NHS Foundation Trust, “The Christie”, to create a world-class cancer research building

The project

  • Acting as advisors to the Trust, our integrated planning and multi-service expertise has led to success across a number of complex planning permissions, including the world-renowned Proton Beam Therapy Centre at the Paterson Redevelopment Project (PRP).
  • The PRP is led by The Christie on behalf of the Manchester Cancer Research Centre, a hugely successful decade long partnership between The Christie, The University of Manchester and Cancer Research UK.
  • A multi-service team advised The Christie on the PRP through a number of project stages. This included the preparation of a focussed Strategic Planning Framework Addendum to establish the principles of the replacement building and a detailed planning application.
  • The Strategic Planning Framework Addendum was approved by Manchester’s Executive in March 2019 and the Planning Application and EIA were approved in September 2019.

Contribution to meeting UNSDGs

  • Goal 3 includes ensuring healthy lives and promotes well-being for all at all ages.
  • The PRP is a world-leading cancer research facility which will transform the ability to prevent, diagnose and treat cancer by enabling clinicians and scientists to work side-by-side and from bench-to-bedside with cancer patients in one building.
  • The research achievable through this development will lead to new treatment discoveries and breakthroughs in the fight against cancer.
