New Homes To Be Built at Trafford Waters Development

A public consultation has been launched on plans for a new housing scheme at Peel L&P’s Trafford Waters development. Trafford Housing Trust, part of L&Q, is bringing forward proposals for 83 apartments on the Trafford side of the Manchester Ship Canal within Trafford City, next to The Trafford and Trafford Leisure Village.

“This is a great opportunity for people to see and comment on our plans prior to a planning application later this year,” said Ben Townsend, new business director (NW) at Trafford Housing Trust.

The scheme, in Redclyffe Road, intends to bring forward one and two-bedroom homes for shared ownership, subject to approval from Homes England for grant funding. The proposals are part of the wider Trafford Waters development, a scheme that will create 3,000 homes, more than 100,000 sq ft of amenity space and 850,000 sq ft of offices in the area. Moreover, the development is estimated to create more than 5,000 jobs and will include a primary school plus 20 acres of open spaces.

Work has started on phase one infrastructure at Trafford Waters to make way for the first 350 new homes which includes THT’s affordable housing development.

“Part of our vision to create a new sustainable community at Trafford Waters is to provide homes that suit a range of needs and we are pleased to be working with THT to help deliver much-needed affordable housing at this site,” said James Whittaker, Peel L&P’s Executive Director for Development.

“We have started infrastructure works with new roads, pedestrian and cycle routes together with large areas of public realm assisted via a match-funded grant from Homes England to enable the delivery of over 350 homes from the first few phases of housing to be developed.”

The public consultation will take place virtually online, and residents are being encouraged to email any questions they have to THT before the plans are finalised and submitted for planning permission later this year. The consultation will run until 6th November.
