Meanwhile use planned for key Victoria North site 

Connecting Dots Group is seeking permission to use land and warehouses off Dantzic Street in Manchester as an arts and cultural venue before the site is redeveloped as part of the £4bn masterplan. 

The two-acre site is to be used next month as the venue for the Summer of Love festival and Connecting Dots has applied to Manchester City Council for permission to use the land for similar events for the next two years. 

The proposed venue is located in New Town, one of seven neighbourhoods to be developed within the 383-acre Victoria North regeneration project. 

The temporary use of the vacant land and buildings aims to “raise the profile of this part of Victoria North, creating interest in, and positively promoting the site and wider area ahead of its prospective redevelopment,” according to a planning statement by Asteer Planning. 

In 2017, planning permission was granted to Leftfield Investment Holdings to redevelop the site into 415 homes, a project known as North View. 

However, this project is not being brought forward and a revised planning application for the site’s redevelopment into a residential-led scheme is currently being drawn up, according to Asteer. 

Other developments coming forward in the New Town neighbourhood include Manchester Property Group’s 1,200-home Gasworks and Far East Consortium’s 634-home Victoria Riverside.
