Peel Land and Property has secured the go-ahead from Trafford Council to build the £1bn Trafford Waters development in Trafford, Manchester.
The 50-acre development, to be located along the banks of the Manchester Ship Canal, will feature 3,000 new homes, a primary school and over 9,300sq m of commercial space.
The project will also include 16 acres of open landscaped space with four multi-use games areas and children’s play parks.
Peel Land and Property group development director James Whittaker said: “Trafford Waters will bring a unique neighbourhood to Greater Manchester, which will not only provide much-needed residential housing but also office space which will help unlock business and employment opportunities.
“The development will be sustainable and feature cycleways, plenty of landscaped, green spaces and waterways, making it a really attractive place to live, work and play. It will be a high-quality development that will feature everything families would expect an established urban community to have and we’re very excited to be bringing this to the people of Trafford.”
Trafford Waters is expected to create 5,000 jobs.
