Wain Estates lodges plans for 1m sq ft Trafford sheds

Units of up to 500,000 sq ft feature within the developer’s Junction scheme, proposed for a 78-acre chunk of the former Shell petrochemical site in Carrington. 

Overall, Wain Estates wants to build 1m sq ft of industrial and logistics accommodation on land west of Isherwood Road, while also delivering around 17 acres of open storage space. 

The developer, previously known as Himor, is working with Emery Planning and UMC Architects on its proposals. A consultation on the scheme was held earlier this year. 

“It is an exciting and complex project with many phases and we are pleased to submit this application for The Junction,” said Carrington Estate managing director, Jack Brister. 

“[The scheme] will help meet the continued demand for high quality, easily accessible, energy efficient and sustainable logistics and industrial space.” 

The redevelopment of the site, which aims to be net zero in operation, is the latest part of Wain Estates’ Carrington regeneration to come forward.  

Wain Estates already has consent for Carrington Village, which is to feature more than 600,000 sq ft of employment space and 320 homes, while Carrington Gateway, a 212,000 sq ft industrial scheme, completed in 2020.  

The developer’s Carrington plans form part of Trafford Council’s 2,800-acre New Carrington allocation.   

New Carrington is earmarked for the creation of more than 6,000 homes and 4.4m sq ft of employment space in the emerging Places for Everyone plan.
