Last week the council revealed plans for new shops, restaurants, cinemas and improved transport links including a new tram stop.

Two years ago, the council was in the final stages of plans for the transformation of the shopping centre before it was sold to Intu, the owners of the Victoria Centre.

If the city council's contribution gets the go ahead, work could begin in 2015 and be completed by 2017.
