The docks in Manchester closed, and Salford Quays development plan came into action after the surround land to the docks were left empty.

The inner urban redevelopment has resulted in new residential, commercial offices leisure and recreational buildings. The derelict city had become transformed Businesses began to decline, which means factories and warehouses closed and unemployment was a major problem.
