FUTURE Carrington is one step closer to being realised as Phase One of the £100million regeneration project has been submitted to Trafford Council’s planning department.

Developers HIMOR hope to revitalise the village by creating a mixed-use community on the 1,660 acre Carrington Estate – which incorporates the former Shell processing plant, Carrington Business Park and neighbouring farmland.

The first stage of the flagship development includes Carrington Village, which would deliver up to 900 two to three bedroom homes, and land off Common Lane, which would become home to 1million sq ft of employment space.

Plans would also see more than 13 hectares of green open space created, Carrington Rugby Club relocated and a new community centre erected.

It is estimated that the project will create 1,000 direct and 1,035 indirect jobs in the area. If plans are approved, Trafford Council can expect a new homes bonus of £7.6m.

Congestion is an ongoing issue in Carrington and developers hope to mitigate with significant transport improvements along Manchester Road at existing junctions at Isherwood Road/Flixton Road; Manchester Road/Common Lane; Carrington Lane, /West Sale Junction.

Submission of the plans follows a period of consultation with residents and stakeholders, who were asked for their views on the plans and layout.

Paul Stanley, Director at HIMOR, said: “We’re pleased to have submitted the applications for Phase One of Future Carrington. We believe that our plans will breathe life into the area, providing high quality homes, creating new jobs, and unlocking investment.

“It was encouraging to see such an interest in the future of this site, which many regard as having real potential for regeneration. Our team has worked hard to consider all points raised by local residents and these have been addressed as part of the submitted application.”

The application will now be determined by Trafford Council later this year.
