Proposals for Lumina Village, the redevelopment of the former Kellogg’s site in Stretford, have been approved at planning committee by Trafford Council. The plans include up to 750 residential homes, a school, office space, a hotel, a bar and an energy centre, with thousands of jobs for the area set to be supported.
Ernst ter Horst, Associate at FCBStudios said “The redevelopment of the former Kelloggs’ site has the potential to create a fantastic new neighbourhood and the planning approval brings us a step closer to making this a reality. Designed around people, with plenty of green space and car-free ‘play streets’ it will be a centre not only for the residents of the much-needed new homes, but for the wider local and working community of Trafford.”
The redevelopment is a joint venture between Trafford Council and Bruntwood Works and is part of the wider Trafford Civic Quarter Masterplan, which covers a 120-acre site that includes the town hall and Lancashire Cricket Club.
Andrea George, regional director of town centres at Bruntwood Works, said: “Lumina Village will be a mixed-use neighbourhood that combines the heritage and history of the area with the needs of the modern resident, worker, student and school pupil. We’re committed to supporting the wider ecosystem of the towns and cities we operate in – Lumina Village will future-proof the area with the highest-standard housing and education facilities surrounded by a thriving commercial offering, catering to the needs of every generation in the community.”
