Montpelier seeks views on Trafford Waters care facility
A consultation has been launched on proposals for an 82-bed three-storey care home within Peel L&P’s £1bn masterplan area.
The development plot sits within TraffordCity, near the Manchester Ship Canal and the Trafford Centre.
Montpelier Estates’ scheme will provide specialist dementia care for residents. The business is a sector specialist, with a 20-year track record of delivering various types of health facilities.
Additional facilities lined up including a café, hair salon, cinema, rooftop garden and space for community events, relaxation and exercise. Several parts of the project will be open to the wider public.
Montpelier’s plans comprise part of the first phase of development at the Trafford Waters site.
In October, a programme of remediation and infrastructure works at the Dumplington regeneration site was approved, unlocking Peel’s ability to achieve its long-term goals at the site, which include 3,000 new homes, a 20-acre park, a primary school, hotels and offices.
This was followed by news of Trafford Housing Trust’s plans to bring forward 83 affordable homes at a site just opposite the proposed Montpelier scheme.
Anna Ciesielska, director of Montpelier Estates, said: “We are extremely pleased to be a part of Peel L&P’s vision for a new community. The site is ideal for providing round-the-clock care to people at a time when they need it the most in their lives whilst still being a part of the active neighbourhood.”
James Whittaker, Peel L&P’s executive director of development, added: “Montpelier’s development will provide local people with much-needed homes that offer additional support and their plans are part of our vision to create more housing choices for Trafford complemented by green space and mixed-use community.
“We’re already on site at Trafford Waters with new roads, walkways, cycle routes, and large areas of public realm and we’re looking forward to other parts of the site coming forward at pace.”
The public consultation will run until 24 November 2022. As a part of that, the proposals can now be viewed online.
