Trafford JV refreshes Bold Street plans 

More than two years after announcing its intention to redevelop part of the former Tamworth Estate, Homes for Trafford is preparing to submit a planning application for a 162-home scheme. 

The joint venture between Trafford Council and Trafford Housing Trust has scaled back earlier plans, which mooted the creation of 172 homes on a site previously occupied by three high-rise tower blocks and the Seahawk Pub. 

Homes for Trafford is now planning to deliver 162 energy-efficient houses and apartments in a range of styles, sizes and tenure, including market sale, shared ownership and social rent. 

Around 50 of the homes will be affordable and the first properties are due to complete in summer 2024, subject to planning approval. 

A consultation on the latest interaction of the scheme is due to launch later this month.

The project team for the scheme features: 

  • Architect – Levitt Bernstein 
  • Planning consultant – Euan Kellie Property Solutions 
  • Engineers and transport consultant – Civic Engineers 
  • Cost consultants – Wilkinson Cowan Partnership 
  • Environmental consultant– Delta Simons 

“We are excited to be working with Trafford Council once again to develop quality, sustainable homes and places where people want to live as part of our commitment to tackling the housing crisis,” said Ben Townsend, director of development at Trafford Housing Trust. 

“At THT we pride ourselves on helping to create communities as well as homes, and by investing in areas such as a new café, community hub and green spaces we are confident that this will become a great and popular place to live.”
