Manchester City Council has approved the proposals, which will see a series of market stalls and a three-metre high wind break erected to form a ‘City Street’.

Meanwhile it is understood the owners of Manchester City football club are progressing with the Rafael Viñoly-designed £1 billion sports and leisure complex close to the stadium.

The 200-acre site at Eastlands, which was previously ear-marked by Gordon Brown for a super casino, is expected to include a £5 million training complex, as well as leisure centres, restaurants and a hotel.
