Manchester City Council

Planning & regeneration Medieval Quarter SRF 2016

We've been asking for your views about our proposals to regenerate the Medieval Quarter area of the city.


Summary of the proposals

The Medieval Quarter is a strategically important area of the city centre.  Sitting in close proximity to the city's retail hub and the Salford City border, the Medieval Quarter is rich in cultural and historical significance. The area is home to Manchester Cathedral and Chetham's School of Music, two renowned historical assets of the Manchester landscape, as well as the National Football Museum, one of the city's key visitor attractions.  Developments within and adjacent to the Medieval Quarter are making the area even more important, both as a destination in its own right, and also as a gateway and route into the main retail and business core of the city centre.

The vision for the area is to create a new improved public realm, making the area more attractive to residents, workers and visitors. It will see the delivery of new and desirable public realm including expanding the area's green space and proving additional tree coverage, enhancing the amenities for residents, workers and visitors to the city centre. The site has the potential to bring a range of key assets. We've set out the proposals in a 'strategic regeneration framework' document which will guide how the regeneration would progress.
