We've been asking for your views about our proposals to refresh the New Cross Neighbourhood Development Framework (NDF), originally approved by the Council in July 2015 following an extensive period of stakeholder consultation.
Summary of the proposals
The New Cross neighbourhood is situated on the north eastern edge of the city centre. Its boundaries are Swan Street to the south, Livesey Street to the north, Rochdale Road and Bromley Street to the west and Oldham Road to the east. The area forms part of the North Manchester Strategic Regeneration Framework area and is increasingly the focus for new residential and commercial development.
The framework area is split into three zones:
- Zone A – the area bounded by Swan Street, Thompson Street, Rochdale Road and Oldham Road
- Zone B – the area bounded by Thompson Street, Livesey Street, Rochdale Road and Oldham Road
- Zone C – the area bounded by Gould Street, Rochdale Road and the railway viaduct running behind Bromley Street .
The NDF approved last year initially focused on the core 'Zone A' of New Cross due to the increasing levels of development activity. However, this latest New Cross Draft NDF update has been prepared to provide more detailed development principles for the remainder of Zones B and C, to ensure the quality of new development and that opportunities for residential and commercial development are maximised.
The public consultation has now closed. Comments received will be reviewed. You can still view the document using the link below.
