Trafford Council is seeking the public’s views on proposals to build 86 homes on the site of the former court having appointed Seddon Developments to build the £18m scheme earlier this year.
Plans for the 2.4-acre Ashton Lane site, designed by architect IBI Group, include 48 townhouses and 38 apartments across two blocks of three and four storeys.
A total of 36 of the townhouses would have four bedrooms and the remaining 12 would have three. The apartments would be a mix of one-, two- and three-bedroom units.
A pocket park would be located between the two apartment block, fronting Cross Street. Additionally, the development would feature 104 car parking spaces.
Avison Young is the planning consultant for the project and Eddisons is advising on transport.
Trafford bought the court in 2018 for an undisclosed sum before appointing contractor PP O’Connor to demolish the buildings the same year.
The court was left empty in 2016 after closing as part of a Government cost-cutting initiative.
The consultation on the proposals runs until 20 November and Seddon aims to start on site next year, subject to the approval of plans.
