“We’ve identified land and properties which are now surplus to Council requirement and are looking to sell them to businesses and developers to bring further regeneration into Trafford,” said Cllr James Wright, executive member for housing and regeneration for Trafford.

“We have great pride in all of our areas, and our vision is to improve connectivity, build successful and thriving places through quality and affordable housing, and create valuable green open spaces and hubs for people to gather and interact,” Wright continued.

“We’ve had a tough year with Covid taking a financial toll on public services. Additional revenue generated from these sales will be vital in re-investing into Trafford’s essential public services.”
