Glenbrook’s 639-home Lumina Village tipped for approval
Trafford Council is set to greenlight the residential element of the £250m mixed-use project it is delivering with Bruntwood when the authority’s planning committee meets next week.
Totalling 639 homes, the project is part of the wider redevelopment of the 12-acre former Kellogg’s site, located within Trafford Council’s Civic Quarter.
Shannon Conway, residential director at Glenbrook, said: “A positive planning decision will facilitate the delivery of a significant part of Trafford’s wider Civic Quarter masterplan, which will be transformational for the area.
“Subject to us securing approval, we’re ready to start on site, working in partnership with Bruntwood and Trafford Council, to deliver much-needed homes, civic squares and boulevards at Lumina Village.”
The Trafford/Bruntwood JV selected Glenbrook to deliver the residential element of Lumina Village in 2022, and the developer submitted a planning application for the development last November.
The scheme comprises a mix of one-, two-, three-, and four-bedroom houses and apartments. Of these, 59% will have more than one bedroom. The remaining 41% will be one-bedroom dwellings.
The 586 flats will be delivered across six blocks ranging from six to 20 storeys. There will be 53 townhouses.
At least 15% of the homes will be available on affordable tenures, Glenbrook has previously stated.
As well as homes, 5.4-acres of public realm, 5,600 sq ft of retail space on the ground floor, and 200 parking spaces also form part of the plans.
Sheppard Robson is the architect, Avison Young is the planning consultant, and Re-form is the landscape architect.

Future phases of Lumina Village, which benefit from outline consent granted in 2020, will feature 200,000 sq ft of offices, a primary school and a 100-bedroom hotel.
