All the organisations involved, including The Christie and the Council, are determined to keep local people fully informed every step of the way.
The changes mean more staff and visitors, so plans include ways to reduce car journeys and to have more staff using public transport, cycling or walking.
Parking for patients and visitors is being improved. There are more Blue Badge spaces, and they’ve all been moved to the Oak Road car park. Parking for radiotherapy treatment and The Christie Clinic have moved from Kinnaird Road to Oak Road ahead of building work, and parking for chemotherapy patients will be built there too.
We've consulted locally about banning all-day parking on local streets, except for residents. We used this consultation and resident feedback to create a resident parking scheme which has now been approved to start in 2015.
We've outlined longer-term plans for The Christie below and will take the comments and queries we've received into account later when specific proposals for new buildings are ready. Everyone directly affected will also be consulted as part of the planning process.
