Peel unveils £1 billion plans for Trafford Waters

  • Comment

North West property giant Peel Land & Property has announced plans for a huge, mixed-use development in Manchester to be known as Trafford Waters

The development, on the banks of the Manchester Ship Canal in Trafford, close to the Trafford Leisure Village and Intu Trafford Centre, will combine up to 3,000 flats and around 81,200m² of commercial space, including offices, small-scale retail, leisure and community uses.

The scheme, which represents an investment of around £1billion, will also have large amounts of green space and will create more than 5,000 jobs, Peel said.

Trafford Waters will be linked to the Intu Trafford Centre by a green bridge, providing access to the bus station and Metrolink stop.

James Whittaker, development director at Peel Land & Property, said that the company had been working on the masterplan for Trafford Waters for more than 15 years.

He said: ‘The strong links with the Intu Trafford Centre and Trafford Leisure Village and unrivalled transport connections, including the Trafford Park Metrolink extension, will make Trafford Waters the place to be.’

Peel Land & Property has been advised by a project team that includes IBI Group for masterplanning and heritage, Gillespies for landscape architecture, TTHC for transport, NJL Consulting for planning, BWB Consulting for environmental assessment, Bureau Veritas for air quality, Hyder Cresswell for ecology, Amion for economic and social analysis, Low Carbon Design Consultants for energy and sustainability, CgMS for archaeology, Turner and Townsend for cost consultancy and Remarkable Engagement for public consultation and stakeholder engagement.
