Trafford Waters

As TraffordCity enters its next phase it will become a destination where thousands will call home. A newly planned residential, retail and leisure community is envisaged at Trafford Waters.

The vision

We have outline planning permission to create, a new sustainable community across 53 acres of land on the banks of the Manchester Ship Canal adjacent to TraffordCity.

The regeneration proposals will create 3,000 new homes for 5,000 key workers, young professionals and families.

It will be one of Greater Manchester’s largest mixed-use developments supported by a new school, health centre, 800,000 sq ft of commercial office and work space, convenience retail set in attractive public spaces.

Our vision for Trafford Waters will be delivered over a 20 year period and will create a new residential and business community.
