New Islington is a distinctive neighbourhood sitting on the North Eastern edge of Manchester City Centre within the Ancoats and Beswick Ward. The area suffered economic decline during the latter half of the 20th century, but over the past 20 years the City Council has worked in conjunction with a range of partners to guide regeneration activities, revitalising the physical fabric and economic fortunes of the area. The area now forms part of the extended City Centre neighbourhood.
Interested parties are invited to submit their proposals to take a new lease of New Islington Marina on a going concern basis.
