AA Projects provided Strategic Estates Support for the Partnership, including the Greater Manchester Combined Authority. We provided a number of roles including programme management of the strategic estates programme, and the undertaking of Locality Asset Reviews (LARs) across a number of the Localities across Greater Manchester.

Each of the 10 CCGs in Greater Manchester were required to develop a plan which aligns with the wider Manchester devolution plan for health & social care. We contextualised Government directives, reviews and strategies such as Naylor Review, Carter Review, Transformational Agenda, Five-Year Forward View and the Long Term Plan. In undertaking a place-based approach to property assets and public land facilitated progress towards delivery of local and national objectives. We also provided the role of strategic estates programme manager to create a pan-regional approach.

The overarching aim was to drive the development of a more fit for purpose, flexible, sustainable and cost-efficient estate. In the long-term it is anticipated that this approach will lead to social and economic benefits including contribution to increased housing delivery, increased employment opportunities and economic growth.

For each Locality Asset Review we appraise properties in accordance with local community need and in association with public sector service providers, in line with ambitions for improved health and community outcomes. The output informs the development of subsequent business case(s) for capital developments and estate rationalisation plans. Dovetailing with the LAR process is the implementation of system wide master-planning, centric to this is the acute setting, integrated with the community and health and social care in a coordinated way.
