PLANNING I Trinity Islands and London Road head approvals list

Allied London’s two schemes were among a bumper planning list at Manchester City Council’s July planning committee. Both were recommended for approval, and both were duly given the green light.

On the fire station decision, Allied chief executive Mike Ingall said: “What a great day for this great building. We can now start a careful and considered process to create something quite special for London Road Fire Station.”

Ingall added that discussions are taking place with hospitality and leisure operators on top of the announcements already made such as hotel operator Zetter.

Regarding Trinity Islands, Ingall said: “In my view there is no point in building something on this scale if everyone can’t appreciate and be part of it. The observation decks will act as visitor attraction and be a big draw – we want people to enjoy this development and be part of it.”

Some absolute crackers there!

By Matilda

Some beautiful schemes there!


Wow. Trinity Island is impressive. The fire station is going to be amazing and I can’t wait to see it finished. I really do hope there are enough people to fill all these new flats

By Steve

It’s such a great achievement the fire station has been saved. It’s such a gorgeous building.


There was an article on MEN last week saying that the population of Central Manchester and Central Salford is to increase by a quarter of a million.Is this true? All good projects.

The property market in the city is mental at the moment. Prices are sky rocketing and flats are going within days.

Prices are ridiculous particularly the flats which aren’t built yet.Half a million pounds for two bedrooms is commonplace and sometimes more.The city centre was affordable for those on goodish wages at one time.Not now.

Some super stuff, but the council is plain WRONG when comes to the vile side wall of the Motel building! The first proposal was better…

By Schwyz

Although the Fire station is a gracious building,what surrounds it,is a mess.The cheap nasty Piccadilly place,being a good example.London road is a shambles and needs a completely different approach.The cracked pavements and horrendous litter don’t help.Let us hope that the Fire station kickstarts what is currently a very grim place to visit.
