  About your Area
 

From 1923, Moss Side was the location of Manchester City Football Club's stadium at Maine Road which on several occasions in its early years drew crowds of more than 80,000. But its capacity was gradually reduced over the years and by the mid-1990s it held just under 35,000 spectators all seated. Plans to rebuild Maine Road to seat 45,000 were abandoned in favour of moving to the City of Manchester Stadium. Maine Road has since been demolished and houses and a school are expected to be built on the site.

[edit] Breweries

There are two breweries in Moss Side. The Royal Brewery brewed Kestrel, McEwan's and Harp Lager, but is now managed by Scottish and Newcastle for the production of Foster's Lager. Hydes Brewery brews traditional beers including Hydes' Bitter and the cask version of Boddingtons - the latter since the closure of the Strangeways Brewery in 2005. The more widely available keg version of 'Boddies' is no longer brewed in Manchester. Hydes have now also taken over the brewing of Harp lager under contract.

[edit] Government and Politics

Manchester Central constituency is represented by the Labour Party MP Tony Lloyd. Lloyd recently organised the face lift scheme for many houses in Moss Side in an attempt to change the image of the area.[citation needed]

Moss Side is a ward within the local authority of Manchester City Council. The ward is represented by Labour Councillors Sameen Ali, Alistair Cox and Roy Walters.[3]

[edit] Geography

Moss Side lies on the A5103 (Princess Park Way/Princess Road), the main road out of Manchester towards Manchester Airport, the M56 motorway and Chester.

The built environment of Moss Side is broadly characterised as a high-density residential area.
