Bruntwood Works and Trafford Council will redevelop the site to include a mix of residential housing, a primary school, offices and public realm.

For this to happen the council is asking everyone about what they want to see happen at this site, this includes councillors and stakeholders, so a public event is to take place at Trafford Town Hall on November 7 from 3pm until 7pm where people can view all the plans and leave feedback.

Large-scale proposals for the development of the former Kellogg’s site in Stretford have been unveiled.

Bruntwood Works and Trafford Council has announced plans for a residential-led mixed use development to include housing, primary school, offices and public realm.

The partnership is committed to engaging with the local community to find out what residents, local councillors and other stakeholders would like to see delivered as part of the scheme. A public consultation event will take place at Trafford Town Hall on 7 November, from 3pm to 7pm, where people can view the plans and provide their feedback.

People can also give their views online by clicking real estate company Avison Young’s consultation document from Thursday 7 November, 2019.

The proposed development sits within the Council’s Civic Quarter Masterplan which covers a huge 120 acre site taking in the Town Hall, Lancashire Cricket Club, the former Kellogg’s site including the University Academy 92 (UA 92) campus, stretching up to the A56/Chester Road and White City retail park.

Other proposals for the area will include a new leisure centre, more and improved public spaces, likely to be more new houses and flats built and more offices, the idea of having improved cycle and pedestrian routes must be taken with a pinch of salt as for what we have now is not good enough, the council is also removing some cycle lanes! this is not a safe thing to do and they need to change minds as soon as possible!  the pavements for people to walk on are in many places in a bad need of repair! the drains need sorting out down Talbot Road and on Washway Road.

The idea we are excited about is a special route that would link the cricket ground to Manchester United FC, this would be very welcomed by everyone so people can go to a game of football or cricket safely.

Leader of Trafford Council, Cllr Andrew Western, said:

The plan presents a fantastic opportunity to provide much-needed housing, further develop local amenities, improve community use of the area and completely transform our public spaces. The plans aims to create a fantastic place for those who live and work here, so please take the time to tell us what you want: your views are vital in shaping this project.”

Andrew Cooke, regional director for Bruntwood Works said:

We’re pleased to be bringing forward this exciting vision for a vibrant mixed-use development, which will sit at the heart of the Trafford Civic Quarter community. The next phase of development will provide the facilities and amenities to anchor and support the sustainable long-term growth of the area – providing high-quality housing and education, alongside an attractive retail and leisure proposition, which will bring people to the area and enable local businesses to attract and retain first-class talent. We look forward to engaging local community and working with them to shape the plans for this development.”
