An estate regeneration project worth £11.4 million has been approved at Trafford’s Planning Committee, held virtually over Zoom. On behalf of Irwell Valley Homes we submitted detailed plans for 79 new affordable homes on underused land on the Sale West Estate, which will be delivered using Homes England funding.

A Masterplan has been developed with the input of residents and stakeholders, with an extensive community consultation programme held from July to December 2019. The homes will be for social rent and made available to residents of Trafford in housing need.

“We’re thrilled with this decision. Trafford Council’s approval of the Sale West Masterplan will improve the quality of the built environment for residents of the estate. It will open up new access routes across the estate, provide more high-quality children’s play areas and seating, improve hard and soft landscaping, and enhance pedestrian routes. These improvements should establish a strong sense of place and ensure the estate is an attractive place to live.”

The permission has also confirmed the principle of development for later phases of the scheme, which could come forward as age friendly apartments or residential care, dependent on funding. A total of 263 new homes could ultimately be delivered on the estate.
