Future Carrington Future Nightmares!

The new village being created by HIMOR on land where Shell used to be in Carrington will hit Partington hard, not to mention the new PEEL development which is situated off Lock Lane.


We have read reports that the HIMOR plans were approved after a delay, although we are still awaiting official conformation on what happened at Trafford Council planning last night April 13.

The assurances read about new infrastructure does not include anything outside of the new village, Carrington Lane, Flixton Road, Manchester Road, Warburton Lane, Sinderland Lane, Moss Lane will be affected badly by this new village.

No new plans to create a relief road has been announced, although we hear of cycle paths which gives us some reason for celebration, but these paths could still be only in and around this new village, which would not be good enough, they need to be connected to existing cycle network paths to be of any use.

The weight of Traffic on already crowded roads will bring Partington and Carrington to a grinding halt, has anyone ever thought about how emergency services are going to get through?

The development to be built off Lock Lane owned by Peel will cause many issues on an area that has a lack of shops, a doctors that is already struggling to cope, only one dentist of which many people are now being sent to Trafford General for treatment, there is only one garage in the area.

Whilst an improved and modern shopping centre has been built, this is still not enough for an extra 2000 more people, we are asking political people to try harder to make sure Partington has the right infrastructure in place so they do not end up having empty shops, a post office having to close because the amount of people using it.

We suggest a new shopping centre for Oak Road area, this would make sense, we have though been told the current building will not be pulled down but refurbished, although we are unsure when this is to happen, it is hoped a change of minds may happen and that a new shopping complex can be built, which would help ease the situation once the Peel development has been built.

We expect those living in the new Carrington village will not drain Partington very much since they will have their own shops and infrastructure, but the Peel development will! and unless people get to grips with this, Partington’s future is looking bleak.

  1. We currently have gridlock in and out of Partington to Carrington or to Warburton Toll Bridge for most morning and evening rush hours.
    Any further development without addressing the one road in and one road out issue, will be a major headache for the people of Partington.
    We also regularly cycle or walk along the farm tracks Rodale, Carrington or Broadheath for leisure, or to get to work and it would appear that this last remaining green space will be under threat without any real consultation. This is a backward step and should ideally be improved to link up with the existing footpaths, canals and cycle network.


    • Hi Ian, thanks for your comments, having done our homework it seems trafford labour councillors did the dirty on Partington and lied about the figures, Karina told me 8 objected to Future Carrington, when we did a poll 80% said they thought the new Carrington village would be bad for Partington with all the comments we have and other feedback its almost 100% negative, but it is too late now, this development is happening and their is no turning back, the one thing we can do is possibly halt the development that will kill Partington off that Peel are about to create on land off Lock Lane, cycling down Sinderland Lane as I do can be very dangerous, can you imagine the situation we will have soon? everyone will try and find a way out of Partington and let me tell you now they will all head down Sinderland Lane which will not be able to cope with that amount of traffic, thanks for your comments Ian


  2. Thank you and I agree 100% with your viewpoint.

    The land off Lock Lane is Marsh Land / Swamp and has been so for 40 years that I know of. You would have to be mad to build or buy a house there.

    As for Sunderland Lane it’s already overused for what is effectively farm access, and has had lots of accidents over the last few years. This inevitably will only get worse, as is completely unsuitable for any increase in traffic levels.

    • I am guessing you are from Partington? see what gets to me on a personal level is people in the area are the powe! they could have stopped the Himor and Peel developments, but now they are faced with major issues, such issues not even mentioned by the political people that are supposed to be looking after the residents best interests, Sinderland lane will not be able to cope, and people have died down that way, I myself have come close to being killed many times, since motorists use it as a Formula 1 circuit and yes many accidents have occurred, I have asked one of your councillors if their was anyway of making Moss Lane to Sinderland Lane one way which would make perfect sense, I might aswell have spoken to the wall!


  3. Many years ago (80’s) The Dr used to run his surgery from my Grans front room! She had an old church pew, 1 Belmont Terrace. Looks like it’s not got much better in the area then.


    • Hi Peter, thanks for your message, they have just one surgery with two sides, never understood why this was, and who was better, they are struggling to cope, with more people due in the area in the next couple of years they will not be able to cope, other services will not cope and simple things like shops won’t either.
