Plans to deliver close to 300 homes at the former Itron factory on Talbot Road, Stretford have taken a step forward following the site’s acquisition by Miller Homes.
Proposals for 191 apartments and 91 houses were unanimously approved by Trafford Council’s planning committee in February this year, and the site’s sale has now been completed, with Savills acting for Itron Metering Solutions (UK).
The development will now be branded as Novus. Calderpeel has designed the scheme, while GL Hearn secured the planning consent for Miller.
Paul Coggins, land director of Miller Homes North West, said: “We are delighted to have officially acquired the former Itron factory site. We have worked very hard to develop plans which will create an attractive gateway development, supported unanimously at committee stage.
“Our vision is to transform the site into a vibrant new community in Stretford. The scheme has a bespoke, high quality design which we hope will become the benchmark for future residential sites in Trafford. Now that the sale has been completed we will start to remediate the site immediately with the first sales anticipated in early 2020.”
Berit Rose, Associate Director of Savills said: “This scheme has been approved on the back of considerable teamwork and we are really pleased that the hard work has paid off. This will bring much-needed housing to Stretford.”
