Mayfield regeneration moves a step closer

The Mayfield Partnership has confirmed that plans for the first phase of the £1.1bn Mayfield project in Manchester city centre will be submitted in the summer, following three public consultations on the scheme in the city centre.

The regeneration project is regarded as one of the most important schemes in the city for a generation and the first phase of development will include a 6.5 acre managed public park centred around the River Medlock, which runs through the site.

This will become a significant managed open space for the public in the city centre and the city’s first park in a century.

Also included in this first phase planning application is an eight-storey commercial office development of 90,000 sq ft and a c.550-space multi-storey car park on Baring Street.

The Mayfield Partnership includes Manchester City Council, London & Continental Railways, Transport for Greater Manchester and developers U+I.

New Start recently visited the site to meet U+I development director James Heather, who hopes Mayfield will be a ‘total pivot’ of the city centre, away from other fertile grounds for regeneration such as Spinnafields and the Northern Quarter.
