Commission for Architecture and the Built Environment commissioners are visiting the £90 million New East Manchester regeneration project this week, seen as a key to the sustainability of the area by the local community. This is the first of a series of regional visits by CABE's commissioners, who are set to visit Hull in six weeks. The commission is planning to continue meeting outside London for the next six or seven months. The 1,100ha former industrial quarter of East Manchester seeks to double the existing population to 60,000, build 12,500 new houses and improve existing homes. The proposed new employment area includes plans for a 160ha business park as well as a 200ha commercial development. The area will also contain a 48,000seat stadium for the 2002 Commonwealth Games.
