L&G presses ahead with 200,000 sq ft Trafford industrial 

An ageing warehouse that occupies the 10-acre City Park Business Village is to be demolished to make way for five modern units, under plans lodged by the investor. 

Totalling 205,000 sq ft, L&G Property Partners’ scheme represents a 35.5% increase in floorspace compared to the shed that would be demolished, which is currently occupied by Klyne Group. 

The five proposed units would range in size from 16,000 sq ft to 70,000 sq ft. 

Hale Architecture is leading on design and JLL is the planning consultant. 

The redevelopment is striving for a BREEAM ‘Very Good’ accreditation and will seek to be net zero carbon in construction and operation, according to JLL.

This Site has the potential to be one of the most sustainable housing sites in close proximity to Manchester. Short sighted development for a prime and already congested route into Manchester.

Inefficient use of space for somewhere with such high property values. Would be great if there was more floorspace added here to boost employment.

I bet Trafford Council will approve this inefficient use of land way before they grant approval to any of the space-efficient residential planning applications which have been submitted in the same area over the last few years.

This is why we need the GMCA to take over control of the region’s planning departments. Individual councils and their councillors are far too myopic and short-sighted.
