Unveil Manchester’s Northern Gateway
24th July 2018
A detailed vision for the Northern Gateway project, a residential-led development programme that will see 15,000 new homes in the next 15-20 years, is being considered by Manchester City Council Executive later this week.
The draft Strategic Regeneration Framework (SRF) sets out eight clear core objectives for the regeneration programme and will be a template for development planning over the next decade, driving the ambitions of the Northern Gateway reports TheBusinessDesk.com.
At 155 hectares, it is one of the largest residential-led regeneration projects in the UK. A key theme of the Gateway is a unique city river park connecting seven new and emerging neighbourhoods through high quality open green spaces and public squares.
The ambitious green space will stretch from Angel Meadow through to Collyhurst with the intention of attracting a wide range of biodiversity, while celebrating the existing architectural features of the valley, including Manchester’s Victorian railway arches.
The Northern Gateway will extend the residential opportunities north from the city centre creating the cluster of well-designed and distinct sustainable neighbourhoods, opening up a range of new retail and family-friendly leisure destinations in the north of the city.
With much improved connectivity,focusing on green transport, including walking, cycling and public transport, the Northern Gateway has the potential to attract a range of visitors from the city centre and beyond, taking advantage of the green space and leisure amenities, while improving the lifestyle residents.
At its heart, the Northern Gateway is a residential-led development and aims to build a mix of 15,000 new homes over the next 15 years with at least 3,000 affordable homes.
