MMU to submit Birley Fields plans

Michael Hunt

Plans for a £120m super-campus are reportedly being submitted by Manchester Metropolitan University tomorrow.

The new 220,000 sq ft Birley Fields campus in Hulme, bordered by Stretford Road, Royce Road and Princess Road, would house the university's teacher training and health faculties, and is expected to create 340 jobs.

Providing plans are approved, a three-month period of public consultation will take place to refine and develop the proposals before a formal application is made.

The project is part of a £400m investment in MMU campuses across Manchester and Cheshire.
