Planning and regeneration Victoria North regeneration

Victoria North is one of the UK’s largest and most ambitious regeneration projects. It's the biggest in Manchester’s history. Over the next two decades, it will deliver 15,000 homes north-east of Manchester city centre. It will grow the population by 40,000 people. And create seven new and distinct neighbourhoods on largely under-utilised and brownfield land. 

The council is working in a joint venture with Far East Consortium (FEC). The project will create better-connected public spaces and new and improved transport links. There'll be high-quality walking and cycling routes in luscious green spaces – for active lifestyles and wellbeing. As well as more homes, parks and retail spaces for the city’s growing population.

At the heart of the regeneration is City River Park with 46 hectares of new and improved parkland. The park will have a variety of character areas including smaller parks and green spaces. It will enhance existing wildlife habitats and create new ones – using climate positive design to be as carbon neutral as possible.

The first areas to be regenerated in Victoria North are Red Bank and Collyhurst.
