Manchester’s new “Whitehall”


The area around the former Mayfield Station is set to become Manchester’s Whitehall, the BBC reports. The announcement coincides nicely with the themes addressed at our regeneration panel debate last night.

  1. I was hoping that Manchester Mayfield would be reopened to expand Piccadilly Station, but it seems the train companies are not so bothered – despite a looming lack of capacity.So if this development is just for civil servants, does this mean any practical change other than a shifting jobs north?

  2. Well that’s a point – I wonder how many of those jobs will affect exisiting civil servants who may have to move from the South to the North? Or will some of the positions be created with the North region in mind taking labour in the local area. It’s been a while coming – five years. With call centres for various departments now all over the country.
