Manchester City Council

Planning & regeneration Piccadilly Basin SRF

We've been asking for your views about our proposals to regenerate the Piccadilly Basin area of the city.  We've set out the proposals in a 'strategic regeneration framework' document which will guide how the regeneration would progress.

Summary of the proposals

The regeneration framework complements development at adjacent neighbourhoods including the wider Piccadilly area, New Islington, Northern Quarter and Great Ancoats Street .

The regeneration framework will see the creation of a residential and commercial destination utilising the potential of Piccadilly Basin . The delivery of this will provide a range of new employment opportunities across a range of sectors within the city centre. The framework sets the objective of delivering a distinctive location which will support the continued growth of the city’s economy. The expanded retail and leisure offer in addition to the creation of new commercial space will both attract new organisations to the city and facilitate the expansion of existing Manchester based businesses.

It will deliver desirable residential development at the heart of the city centre, providing residents with access to key retail and leisure amenities. The framework will provide additional homes within close proximity to both the job opportunities created not only within the Basin but also to key emerging city centre neighbourhoods including New Islington, The Northern Quarter and Great Ancoats Street .
