Living in Miles Platting

Most homes in Miles Platting are benefiting from massive improvements through an exciting investment scheme called a Private Finance Initiative (PFI).

Homes on the eastern side of the area are within reach of 'East Manchester town centre', between Alan Turing Way and Ashton New Road; it includes an Asda superstore and smaller local shops and facilities.

There's a great range of excellent facilities a mile away around the City of Manchester stadium and the Sportcity complex - including athletics, squash and tennis, and the national velodrome cycling centre.

Other homes are much closer to city centre shops, and right next to the Central Retail Park where there are large electrical, household, toy and sports stores.

The bars and restaurants of the 'Northern Quarter' are just over Great Ancoats Street. The vibrant city centre, with its shops, entertainment and leisure facilities is within walking distance, or a few minutes journey from the eastern side on one of the regular buses through the area.

The extension of the Metrolink tram system will bring fast, frequent trams to the area, from new stations on Pollard Street and Holt Town.
