The plan to build 22 new apartments on land on Lock Lane in Partington was given the nod at a recent planning meeting at Trafford Council.
We had already published an article about these plans previously, however we waited for official clearance which has given last week, it means work will now commence which will bring with it some very unhappy residents living around the site, however impact from noise, dust and odours from the work will be monitored.
Trafford Housing Trust will be the landlord once the new apartments are built, their will be two phases, demolition and remediation and then the development.
Mulbury homes will be the contractor who builds and designs the new apartments, during these phases residents will likely see road closures or traffic control lights on Lock Lane and a new traffic plan so to minimise any delays to both workers and resident during peak hours.
Any resident concerned about asbestos on the site will be happy to know that contractors have given it the all clear, in documents seen no asbestos was found.
Dust will be an issue during demolition as expected, this will be controlled by water suppression, recordings of noise and odours will be taken on a daily basis to make sure nothing gets out of control.
Japanese Knotweed has been identified on the site, this will be sorted out pre-demolition and will mean it will never be able to return.
New drainage will be installed, which will cause much of the delays for residents, further talks are underway with United Utilities.
