'Coronation Street' Removal Get The Go-Ahead

ITV One's famous Coronation Street is on the move with news that Trafford Council's Planning Committee has approved plans to relocate the set to a site adjacent to the Imperial War Museum North at Manchester's Trafford Wharf.
ITV is building a new, bespoke production and studio centre for the popular TV soap, Coronation Street. The stand-alone facility, which will be subject to a long-term lease, would be built by ITV on the 7.7 acre site accessed by a new bridge across the waterway to the main MediaCityUK complex.
Plans for the site include a new external film set, built to greater scale than before to equip the soap for the demands of future broadcasting developments, whilst also replicating the original appearance of Weatherfield.
Leader of Trafford Council Matt Colledge said: "I am extremely pleased the planning committee were satisfied with the planning application and have found in favour of this development.
"Being home to the most iconic street in Britain, and housing a significant part of the Media City UK scheme in Trafford will enhance the existing area around the Imperial War Museum North and bring significant benefits into Trafford, including the developing walkway and new bridge linking Trafford to Salford, and the original MediaCityUK development, the creation of additional jobs, and a role in the development of a hub for the creative and digital industries in the North West."
Work on site is planned to begin in the second quarter of 2011.
