Salford Quays Before Regeneration

  • So what kind of place was Salford Quays before regeneration, and why was Salford Quays in need of regeneration in the first place? According to Salford Quays history, before the emergence of Manchester Media City UK, the Salford Quays area was an industrial dockland which became derelict after the city’s business scene and the need for Manchester docks had declined during the 1970s. During the period of closure, the Salford docks had become a hub for vandalism and crime, and as a result, were in desperate need of redevelopment, prompting the Salford regeneration scheme we know and love today.

When did the Regeneration of Salford Quays begin?

  • It wasn’t until 1985 that redevelopment of Salford Quays began, when Salford city council led fresh construction projects which breathed new life into the area up until 1993. The infrastructure of the docks had been developed to build an internal waterway network, a waterfront promenade, roads and bridges, mooring and watersports facilities, and a railway swing bridge. A hotel, cinema, and housing facilities were also introduced, with the amount of public funding and investment for the area totalling around £280 million by the early 1990s.

 The Introduction of MediaCityUK – Salford’s Urban Regeneration Scheme

  • Led by the Peel Group, construction for MediaCityUK began back in 2007, marking the beginning of a new Salford Quays and saying goodbye to the once derelict area of Salford Quays before regeneration. Since then, Manchester’s Salford based area has evolved into a renowned hub for business and investment. A multitude of businesses are based in MediaCityUK, including the Northern headquarters of the BBC and offices for ITV, Ericsson, Kellogg’s and 250 more businesses. This has done huge things for the Manchester and North West economy as a whole, with the redevelopment of Salford Quays increasing worldwide interest for the area.
  • The significance of the Salford Quays business scene has led to growing demand from young professionals, with more and more people choosing to take advantage of the exciting opportunities on offer in the many office block developments. Not only this, but thanks to the Salford Quays regeneration, several campuses for the University of Salford are based in the area which has boosted the Salford Quays student population. These increased numbers of young professionals and students have encouraged the development of more high-quality accommodation, which is where the expansion of MediaCityUK comes in.
