A little over-optimistic I think in showing two lines of traffic and Metrolink side by side on Merrill street. I suspect that at least one direction of traffic will have to be redirected along Every Street

Isnt there a significant set back on Merrill Street and i suspect those houses on either side (which are actually very good and well looked after) are to be demolished in the bigger scheme of things?

How dense is the housing going to be?

And then when you've got that figure compare it to the one for Timperley/Camden/beach side New Zealand because I'm too stupid to work outside my own experience.

I see there are also plans to create new canal locks and basins as they have further along in New Islington and also in Salford.

These plans looks fantastic. It's a shame that most will most likely be unaffordable to those people who really need them.

Manchester waterfront scheme in for planning
09:45 | 04.06.07

Plans for the redevelopment of Holt Town Waterfront, close to Manchester, have been submitted to the local council by developer Cibitas Investments.

By Laura Chesters

The 95 acre residential-led urban quarter will create 4m sq ft of residential space, as well as a new primary school, offices and a range of shops, bars and restaurants.

The scheme will be developed over the next 15 years and is close to the Sports City development.

The redevelopment is being led by urban regeneration company New East Manchester and Manchester City Council. The development framework was led by masterplanning and design consultancy Edaw in conjunction with Arup, Davis Langdon, GVA Grimley, Mace and Studio Egret West.

And that daft bint's got her bike lights on in the daytime. The world's gone mad!

Seriously though, if gays with kids is your worst nightmare you need to get a copy of Cannibal Holocaust and imagine that they're eating your Mum.

its typical uk to lose all of its moral compass and has two gays holding a lads hand.

In reality we all know that if that actually existed the kid would get the crap beaten out of him at school.

i persoanlly feel gays should not be given no rights, its not natural and it spreads aids.

i personally feel being gay is mental disease, but each to there own i guess...

Don't be stupid. The kid is black. He would clearly bust a cap in anyone's ass who tried. Or stab them. Whatever those violent ethno savages are doing nowadays.

Giving human rights spreads aids? Someone tell Kofi Annan, he's effectively been arseraping us all for years.

You feel your own gayness makes you mentally ill? That's very unfortunate. Go and bum some kids, you'll soon feel right as a nine bob note.

If I had the money I'd move to Holt Town with my as yet unrealised black male lover and raise an Bennetton ads worth of mixed race, sexully amorphous kids just to piss you off.

You're just lucky I'm so poor.
