Future of Chorlton St Bus Station

Future of Chorlton St Bus Station

An old and often thorny issue has reared its head once more,  with the announcement this week that Chorlton Street bus station could be moved and Yates’s wine bar demolished under dramatic plans.

If regeneration plans get the go-ahead then several buildings in the Portland St area could be under threat.

For many this has been a familair issue which has never really progressed beyond the 'idea' or 'possiblility' stage.

Adam Prince, local campaigner and independent ward Councillor candidate for May 2018 says

"This crucial site has the potential to be great for the Gay Village or to be an error of blandification and destroying the world famed area we love. Such opportunities fill many with trepidation and fear, because of the poor engagement from our planners and Council. Cocreation and identity are vital for planning and engaged and thriving area important to the LGBTQ community. The people this time cannot be ignored as is the case too often".

We approached the council for their view, but nothing had arrived at the point of publishing.
