At least four of the Council’ “catalytic actions” seem to be in real trouble. ‘World Leading Regeneration’ has stalled thanks to the credit crunch. The ‘Retrofitting of Manchester;s Civic Heritage’ is unlikely if – as Sir Howard Bernstein hinted in the business newspaper Crains (April 13) – the Council’s move is put on hold. Meanwhile, Manchester Aiport hires new marketeers and plots its expansion, and the poorly- attended ‘Local Development Framework’ consultation events don’t even mention climate change (see page 2). And 3 months into the Call to Action, how many “low carbon communities” have started?
