Developers Peel Investments North and Countryside Properties have lodged amended plans for 449 homes off Lock Lane, next to the Manchester Ship Canal.
In February, the joint venture submitted proposals for a pair of housing schemes in Partington totalling 455 homes with a combined construction value of £72.3m.
However, the plans have now been scaled back slightly after residents raised concerns about the impact the development could have on local infrastructure.
Under the revised proposals, there would be two fewer affordable homes and four fewer homes available for private rent. The number of properties available for private sale would remain the same under the tweaked plans.
The homes would be delivered across two sites. The first, a 10-acre plot north of Hall Lane, would comprise 151 homes, while the second site, 30 acres north of Lock Lane, would comprise a further 299 homes.
A total of 115 of the homes would be designated as affordable and 144 would be available for private rent. The remaining 190 would be sold on the open market.
Housebuilder Countryside would deliver the homes for sale, while PRS partner Sigma Capital Group would deliver the rental homes. Great Places would operate the affordable housing element, under the plans.
Lichfields is the planning consultant for the scheme. Neither application has been determined by Trafford Council.
Peel L&P sold the land to Countryside at the start of last year.
