Help Shape Future Plans for Mariners Canal
As part of our plans to make Salford Quays an even better place to live, work and visit, we are looking to make improvements to some of the walking routes and outdoor spaces around the Quays.
The first area we are exploring is Mariners Canal. One of the highlights on the walking route around the Quays, Mariners Canal is a very popular and well-used place, but it is a sensitive location due to its proximity to residents.
We think there are opportunities to enhance the overall appearance of Mariners Canal, by introducing softer landscaping to support biodiversity, as well as reviewing how people use the space, and find their way through the area.
Ultimately, we see Mariners Canal as playing a key role in the creation of a welcoming, interesting and attractive circular ‘Inner Loop’ at Salford Quays, which showcases some of the Quays’ best features and provides interest for all.
While plans are still taking shape, we want to start a conversation with residents, businesses and other local organisations about how best to improve Mariners Canal. This month, we are launching an initial consultation to seek your views. After we have reviewed the feedback, we will continue developing the designs and share these in a further phase of consultation later in the summer.
