The Civic Quarter Area Action Plan covers more than 50 hectares and includes the old B&Q on Great Stone Road, the old GMP HQ on Chester Road, Lancashire Cricket Club and Trafford Town Hall.

The plan for this huge area includes a significant number of homes and a range of other amenities, all connected by improved cycle and pedestrian routes.

After examination by an independent planning inspector it has received a number of alterations, or 'main modifications', which are now up for consultation.

Cllr Liz Patel, Trafford Council's executive member for economy and regeneration, said: "Securing the successful regeneration of this location has been a longstanding priority for Trafford Council.

"The plan has been prepared to deliver a sustainable and balanced community for the Civic Quarter, and it also reflects the council’s corporate priorities in this area.

"Residents are again encouraged to make their views known, this time on the proposed changes to the plan."

The consultation on the 'main modifications' runs from July 14 to September 2.

Once complete, the council hopes to adopt the plan before the end of this year.
