1. What it was like before redevelopment
There was mixture of high rise blocks of flats and also deck access housing. The high rise flats were unsafe and security was a huge issue. Lifts were nearly always out of order and due to the dark corridors, people felt unsafe because no-one would know if you were attacked. It was too expensive to have electricity so they instead had gas. The lower floors had rising damp, and the whole block was structurally unstable.
The deck access housing was also very bad in terms of security. Because it was one long corridor that they referred to as a street you had to walk past all houses to get to yours. This in turn made it very unsafe. The residents were unhappy because they had no personal territory; they had nothing to make their own.
Both of these types of housing were also infected with pests and children were unsafe to walk anywhere alone or even accompanied. Hulme was described as deprived which means lacking in advantage, opportunity, or experience or a state of extreme poverty.
