Manchester City Council is reviewing its plans for the ongoing transformation of North Manchester and need your views to help shape the future of the area.
In 2003 Manchester City Council published the North Manchester Strategic Regeneration Framework (SRF). This framework identified the key strengths and opportunities of the area along with the main challenges and priorities for improvement. It then set out a 10-15 year plan to guide investment with a vision of creating successful "Sustainable Communities" where people want to live, close to the City Centre.
It is now eight years into the original plan. Much has been achieved and should be celebrated, but there is much more to do, and to do in a very difficult climate. Manchester City Council would like you to tell them if they have identified the right priorities and opportunities for the following 10 to 15 years.
In brief, the SRF seeks to:
• Take full advantage of the closeness of the city centre to encourage growth in new homes, businesses and jobs
• Ensure North Manchester is an attractive place to live and raise families, with easy access to high-quality public services, retail, leisure, and green spaces
• Deliver high-quality family homes, transform neighbourhoods where major change is needed, and ensure areas are clean and safe
• Ensure residents fully benefit from the prosperity and jobs in North Manchester, the city, and across Greater Manchester
• Ensure residents and families are healthy and can realise their aspirations
