This week, the Council started work to remove the freestanding portion of the wall in Piccadilly Gardens as part of the £2 million in long-term funding earmarked to improve Piccadilly Gardens from the Council’s capital budget.
The work will include the removal of street furniture around Piccadilly Gardens, increasing the light provision, launching a consultation on the gardens and the demolition of the free-standing wall.
A further consultation will be launched in December on wider improvements to the Gardens, which will be available on Manchester City Council’s Consultation landing page.

Local Labour Councillor Marcus Johns said: “We were elected in 2018 on the promise to improve and increase our public spaces in the city centre. This is a crucial step in fulfilling that promise.
“Picadilly Gardens has needed a fresh start for a long time, and we are working with GMP, our colleagues in Piccadilly Ward, and other partners to tackle anti-social behaviour, littering, and other problems that we have suffered there.
“As one of the busiest and most visited spaces in our city – it’s important that we get this right. I am asking all city centre residents, visitors, workers, and businesses to consider responding to the consultation on the future of the Gardens which will open later this year.”
