Part of the proposed developments

Two separate planning proposals have been lodged for a total of 455 new homes skirting the Manchester Ship Canal at Partington.

The Manchester office of national planning and development consultants Lichfields submitted the plans to Trafford Council on behalf of Countryside Properties (UK) and Peel Investments (North).

A new planning application, seeking full permission, has been submitted for 156 homes comprising a mix of two-, three-, and four-bed detached, semi-detached and terraced houses.

These will include 78 affordable homes, 15 private rented homes, with the remaining 63 for sale on the open market.

Adjoining this application site is a reserved matter application for 299 dwellings fronting on to the Manchester Ship Canal.

This will comprise 18 different house types, with 39 affordable homes, 133 private rented homes, and the remaining 127 open market housing.

Outline planning approval for this residential development was secured in September, last year.

The developments, on private land, north of Lock Lane, will incorporate new landscaping, access roads and pedestrian facilities.

Lichfields say the developments will result in a construction value figure of approximately £72.3m.

This will sustain 265 on-site construction jobs and support 400 off-site jobs in construction-related industries over the four year period of the build.

Lichfields’ planner, Rebecca Hilton, said: “Partington has been identified as a Priority Regeneration Area in the Trafford Core Strategy.

“These developments are sustainable and will assist Trafford Council achieve its housebuilding targets by delivering a variety of family homes for the community.”
