MEDIA CITY UNDER FIRE IN SALFORD
 

Media City Accused of Showing Its Backside To Salford

As Media City begins to take shape in Salford, residents are pointing out that, while all the big fancy towers face Manchester and the Quays, all the car parks and site entrances are backing onto Salford’s community…

“This is Media City showing its arse to Salford” says a resident of Langworthy, pointing at the vast multi-storey car park and site entrances that back onto the Weaste, Seedley and Langworthy areas of the city.

And a walk around the back of Media City confirms the view.  A huge car park, some site offices and the entrance to the Pie Factory, where filming is already happening, are all that can be seen.  The huge sign for the Media City studio actually faces the Quays and The Lowry. 

Despite promises from Media City that the huge project will include the community, the building work so far does not look over-inclusive…

I have a great idea for the bbc and media city,the quays etc. To show that the site will be fully integrated and for the benefit of all Salford people, how about moving the travellers site from Duchy to the quays? It would give the bbc a chance to do a few documentaries about them. RESULT
