Plans for the space
Once a retail park, Manchester City Council bought the land and have plans for it to become office space.
In the interim the council wish to put a temporary car park in the space (for around 5 years) which should bring the council £1.1m.
The council plan to amend Great Ancoats Street into a "Tree Paved Boulevard".
The additional roadworks on this main road, with the addition of a new 440 space car park will result in more congestion in the area.
Noting Greater Manchester's Clean Air campaign, most constituents are surprised not to see a cycle path in the plans.
