Plans for a proposed new park in Manchester city centre will be going on display as part of a public consultation into the masterplan for the historic Mayfield district of the city.
The 6.5-acre park would be the centrepiece of the proposed regeneration of the Mayfield area, which covers 24 acres of under-utilised land close to Piccadilly Station.
The site includes the disused Mayfield Railway station, its cavernous depot and the River Medlock which winds its way through the site.
The plans envisage five distinctive neighbourhoods clustered around the park and detail the retention of the main historic buildings on the site. These include the Mayfield Station including its platforms, the Mayfield Depot and the associated railway arches which form the site boundary along Temperance Street.
The plans are being promoted by the Mayfield Partnership – a joint venture between LCR, Manchester City Council, Transport for Greater Manchester and regeneration specialist U+I – which has published a new Strategic Regeneration Framework (SRF) for the city centre site.
