Inner city area of Manchester, just south of Manchester CBD.

Like inner cities in many large urban areas in the UK, Hulme suffered from industrial job losses and poor housing from 1930s onwards

In the 1960s Hulme was redeveloped to create an estate of enormous block of flats.

What were they called?

The Crescents, at first it seemed modern but it quickly decayed.

What were the problems with crescents

Poor quality council flats were damp, expensive and infested with pests

Social problems of poverty and drug use grew as many poorer families were housed by the council in the estate

How much did city challenge in 1992 give to Manchester City council to regenerate Hulme for a 2nd time

Β£37.5 million

What was set up to organise the projects - a partnership between the council , building firms and local voluntary organisations

Hulme Regeneration Ltd

Who was consulted widely to seek views as to what sort of improvements people wanted

Local residents

When were the crescents were demolished?


The HRL set about the regeneration of Hulme to build a more sustainable neighbourhood. This involved:

🍍a mix of housing types to attract people of a range of income and ages - to make Hulme a more stable mixed community

🍍 the new homes are energy efficient with high quality insulation and double glazing

🍍houses and flats overlook open spaces to improve security

🍍streets have been designed to encourage walking, cycling and public transport instead of cars. This saves resources, reduces air pollution and improves people's health

🍍a new park- Hulme Park - links it to the city centre via footbridge over the Mancunian Way

Revitalising Hulme invokes more than just new houses - new employment and better services are needed too:

πŸ‰The Stretford High Street (demolished in 1960s) has been recreated, promoting local shopping and better services

πŸ‰ Schools in Hulme like the Ducie High School received funds for new dance studio and ICT facilities

πŸ‰New industrial and office premises have attracted thousands of new jobs to Hulme

πŸ‰The building of a new ASDA supermarket also created 350 new jobs
