A pre-planning public consultation event on Thursday, July 26th will give local residents the opportunity to view and comment on plans for up to 473 new homes off Warburton Lane, on the border of Partington and Warburton.
Redrow Homes is hoping to build its high quality two, three, four and five-bedroom family homes on two parcels of land either side of Warburton Lane.
The land has previously been set aside by Trafford Council as ‘protected open land’, intended for accommodating future development needs.
Redrow’s proposed development will help Trafford towards the 12,210 new homes needed within the borough between 2011 and 2026. In particular, it will help address a limited supply of good quality private sale family housing in Partington which, currently, has a higher than average proportion of smaller one and two-bedroom properties.
Redrow is preparing three separate planning applications for the two sites which total 24.7 hectares – an overarching outline application for the whole site in broad terms; and two detailed applications for around 260 homes to the east of Warburton Lane and around 213 new home to the west.
There will also be generous areas of open space, landscaped areas, footpath connections, play areas, attenuation ponds and any necessary highways improvements.
John Cooper, land director for Redrow Homes (NW), said: “Overall our development proposals will bring about a number of benefits to the local community. They will contribute to meeting Trafford’s identified housing need, provide construction jobs and deliver local investment and expenditure in the local economy.
“Our homes will be high quality, energy efficient, owner-occupied family–sized housing within walking distance of local facilities in Partington and we will also provide informal amenity open space plus formal play areas for new and existing residents.”
The 473 homes would include an element of affordable properties for discounted purchase, shared ownership or social rent, in line with current policy.
Redrow’s initial proposals can be viewed at The Fuse ROC Centre, on Warburton Lane, Partington, on Thursday between 4pm and 7pm. Thereafter they can be viewed at http://www.warburtonlane.com.
Feedback will help shape the planning applications that Redrow discusses with and submits to Trafford Council, although at this early stage and subject to planning consent, it’s unlikely that any new homes will be built until at least 2020.
Of course Brexit could change everything!
