A lot has been happening in Chorlton since the publication of the Vital and Viable Chorlton
report, commissioned for Manchester City Council and created by the Institute of Place Management, based at Manchester Metropolitan University.
Written in the days before Covid 19, the report looked at ways in which Chorlton could become more sustainable and a better place to live, with a stronger local economy. It measured Chorlton against a set of 25 factors which can all influence the success (or otherwise) of a local district centre and its surrounding area.
As the report says, it’s up to local people to organise and take action – and we have more influence than we might think.
