Place Shaping

There are a number of major developments underway across the Borough both completed and ongoing, including the substantial extension of GMs Metrolink tram network through Trafford Park and on to the Trafford Centre – this extended the Metrolink line by 5.5km and hosts six new stops.

The Trafford Waters Scheme situated on the banks of the Manchester Ship Canal will see 3,000 new homes, a diverse business community, new school, leisure opportunities, attractive green spaces, all within a sustainable urban neighbourhood.

‘Future Carrington’ will provide 7,000 new homes, create around 660 jobs during construction phase and an expected further 14,000 jobs once the site is developed.

Additionally, there are plans to build a £250m tropical spa resort (Therme Spa), billed as the UK’s first ‘wellbeing-resort’ next to the Trafford Centre. The 28 acre site will boast indoor swimming pools, steam rooms and saunas landscaped with plants and trees.
