In 2007, it was confirmed that the BBC would be moving five of its departments to a new development on Pier 9, to be called MediaCityUK. The MediaCityUK project is being developed by Peel Holdings Group. The departments to be moved are BBC Children's, BBC Children's Learning, BBC Sport, BBC Radio Five Live, and parts of BBC Future Media and Technology (including a small number from BBC R&D), as well as the BBC Breakfast programme, involving about 2,300 staff in total. The move, expected to be completed by 2011, marks a major decentralisation of the corporation's operations, and will represent the BBC's largest presence outside of London. The arrival of the BBC is expected to attract other media, broadcasting, and filmmaking companies to the area.
