Manchester City Council

Planning & regeneration Proposed changes around the Lower Irk Valley

This consultation has now ended.

The Lower Irk Valley forms part of the northern fringe of the city centre. Its boundaries are Redbank and the Green Quarter to the west, the railway viaduct and Rochdale Road to the east, HMG paints and Collyhurst to the north, and the NOMA developments and city centre to the south.

We're asking for your views about proposals on how the area could be developed and transformed into a successful, distinctive residential and commercial neighbourhood.

We've set out our proposals in a draft document -- a 'Neighbourhood Development Framework'

Summary of the proposals

This part of Manchester is increasingly a focus for new housing and commercial developments. It sits alongside some important regeneration priorities including the Green Quarter, NOMA, Collyhurst, New Cross and the Ancoats and New Islington neighbourhoods which have all benefited from significant public and private investment.

With its unique character and heritage and nearby high quality public open spaces, the Lower Irk Valley has the potential to make its own significant contribution to the development of new homes and associated services to accommodate the growing numbers looking to live near their city centre jobs, with easy access to key public transport improvements such as the Northern Hub.

Please send us your views by 13 November 2015 via the following email address:

Nearby developments

Alongside proposals for the Lower Irk Valley, there is also a consultation being undertaken focused on the area around Angel Meadow, which sits within the NOMA development Framework. Together these different Frameworks form part of a wider Northern Gateway residential strategy.
