Vistry and L&Q draw up phase four Partington plans

A planning application for further development at Heath Farm Lane will be submitted in the coming months seeking to deliver the next 80 homes of a 600-home scheme.

Located off Broadway and Moss View Road in Partington, it is part of the 70 acres of brownfield land being developed by Vistry Group and L&Q in a joint venture.

Of the 600 homes planned, 148 have been completed including 74 classed as affordable.

These will be offered in affordable rent and shared ownership tenures through Laurus Homes, which is part of L&Q, and supported by Homes England.

Construction on the current phase is expected to finish by the end of next year creating a further 126 homes available for sale by Linden Homes.

Detailed proposals for the next 80 homes are being designed to comply with the emerging Trafford Design Code, according to the developers, hinting that a typical Trafford 1930s home will heavily influence the architectural style.

Joe Turner, managing director of Vistry Manchester & Cheshire East, said: “At Heath Farm, we’re working in partnership with L&Q to transform 29 hectares of brownfield land into a vibrant new community, including a significant number of affordable homes.

“Added to that, we’re providing training opportunities via our Skills Academy, which is helping to upskill members of the local community and support them into full-time work.

“It’s exactly what good regeneration should be about.”

Ben Townsend, new business director of North West at L&Q, said: “At L&Q, we remain committed, together with our partners, to play our role in tackling the housing crisis and delivering homes for a range of tenures that the area needs.

“Beyond the delivery of homes, our mission is to build neighbourhoods people can be proud of and we are very pleased to see this part of Trafford establish with a great sense of place.”

Many more homes for Partington need a local transport system to match the rapid growth. Bus frequency and route times to Manchester, Sale and Altrincham need to be dramatically improved. An hour to the city centre and an all round the houses route to Alty which takes forever is not good enough! Nearby Carrington is set to grow massively too! These two forgotten places never feature when Andy Burnham talks about Greater Manchester future transport plans. Local people in this corner of Trafford need to be better and faster connected like other areas are – and will be!

For example, what about a frequent bus shuttle service serving Flixton Rail Station to link up with fast trains into central Manchester? Or bring back the 252 Partington to Manchester bus service via Sale to compliment the 255 Partington to Manchester bus via Urmston giving a 15 minute frequency instead of a 30 minute one into town.

I realise this is a local transport question. But thousands more people living in these newly built homes need a valid reason to be got out of their cars and use public transport. Not add to queues on already grid locked roads at peak times.

I believe there are plans in the Greater Manchester 2040 transport plan to build a quicker road link to Sale and for a rapid bus route but these are probably a good decade or two away, if indeed, they ever come to fruition.

Message to Andy Burnham..give Partington and Carrington the tram! Ding! Ding!

Partington is still the forgotten part of Trafford with little or no sustainable transport and a farcical road link to nearby Alty. Trafford, GMCA and Transport for the North need to do better by Partington. A new road link to Sale via Carrington in many years isn’t the answer. A tram link or a rapid bus service on the old Sinderland rail line would make some sense and the widening of the Road to Alty and A56 would create better integration and support its regeneration
