Why We Are Consulting

Please note that we cannot register your comments without your details.

You can find out more information about the plans at two interactive events being run by the Council:

  • Wednesday 26 Feb, 6-8pm, Lancashire Cricket Club
  • Tuesday 10 March, 6-8pm, Lancashire Cricket Club

To book your place please visit the Eventbrite booking page. The two events are identical so you only need to book once.

The Civic Quarter Area Action Plan will be part of the statutory development plan for Trafford, sitting alongside the adopted Core Strategy and the Trafford Local Plan and Greater Manchester Spatial Framework as they emerge. It will be the starting point for determining planning applications within the Civic Quarter area. Following this consultation a submission draft will be submitted to the Planning Inspectorate for scrutiny prior to adoption. It is hoped the Civic Quarter AAP will be adopted as Council policy by mid-2021 following an Examination in Public.

The Civic Quarter AAP covers a 55 hectare site taking in the Town Hall, Lancashire Cricket Club, the former Kellogg’s site including the University Academy 92 (UA 92) campus, stretching up to the A56/Chester Road, White City retail park and the former Greater Manchester Police (GMP) site. The area is bounded by Great Stone Road to the east, the A56/Chester Road to the north and the Altrincham Metrolink line to the south.

The plans include building a new leisure centre; an improved public realm, continued development of a new University campus, new homes and offices and improved cycle and pedestrian routes. A ‘processional route’ is also proposed which could amplify the connection between two world-class sporting venues - Lancashire Cricket Club and Manchester United. .

The Council will consider all comments made at this stage and use them to inform preparation of the Publication Draft Civic Quarter AAP (Regulation 19) that we expect to be ready for public engagement later in 2020.
