RESIDENTS have until February16 to have their say on the proposals for a new for a new residential development of around 430 homes.

Accrue Capital are to regenerate a derelict brownfield site at the former B&Q on Great Stone Road, Old Trafford.

The property developer is working with the local town planning consultancy, Indigo Planning and Manchester based architects, O'Connell East to develop the homes comprising of 1-bed, 2-bed and 3-bed properties and will be called Trafford Place.

Stephen Webster, Chairman of Accrue Capital, said: “We are very keen to hear from interested members of the public, including those who live and work in the local area, on what they would like to be included in our exciting plans for this derelict site.

“The number of new homes needed in Trafford vastly exceeds the current pipeline of expected new development. Our vision is to help change that, by delivering a scheme which will create around 430 new homes for the area, whilst also delivering considerable economic benefits to the area. We urge as many people as possible to participate in the consultation, so that we can consider a wide range of views.”

They say the plans have considered the proximity to Old Trafford cricket ground and has been carefully designed to be complementary to the local area - at its tallest, it will provide a view over the ground.

There will be a new public realm with a mix of complementary uses, which may include a gym / fitness suite for public use, some small retail spaces, (for example a coffee shop) and room for additional community uses.

There is also an aim to provide a new footpath parallel to the tramline to improve the area’s connectivity with public transport services.
