As part of The Christie travel strategy, the Trust has a number of initiatives in progress. Tiered car parking is one of the initiatives and involves the erection of tiered car parking in the existing car parking area accessed via Cotton Lane.
The formal planning application for the provision of tiered parking for staff on Cotton Lane which will provide an additional 407 spaces was approved at the Manchester City Council planning committee in January 2018. A condition of the planning permission was entering into a new section 106 agreement to extend the current controlled parking zone.
The full business case for the detailed design and construction of the tiered car park was approved by Management Board and the Board of Directors in September 2018.
The Trust is continuing negotiations with the City of Manchester for the expansion of the Controlled Parking Zone. To offset the loss of parking at Cotton Lane, free park and ride services will be provided off site at a number of locations within a three mile radius of The Christie. These park and ride sites will enable staff travelling from different directions to easily access parking.
