Summary of Great Jackson Street SRF:

The Great Jackson Street area occupies a strategic position in the Southern gateway to the City Centre. It is located adjacent to Castlefield and is bounded by Chester Road and the River Medlock to the north and west, the Mancunian Way to the south and the residential developments on City Road East to the east. It consists of around 20 acres (8 hectares) of land.

The revised draft regeneration framework sets out how the area could be developed as a new residential district. The overall aim would be to create a high quality residential neighbourhood with high value homes that would support the growth of the economy. It would be possible to create a vibrant, safe, secure and sustainable community incorporating a range of dwelling types, providing an attractive place to live with a range of apartments and two and three storey houses. This would be supported and underpinned by the creation of a high quality environment including areas of public space, shared/private amenity space and new pedestrian linkages and connections.
