Bruntwood Works and Trafford Council are set to transform the former Kellogg’s site in Old Trafford, Stretford into a new neighbourhood, Lumina Village
The new Lumina Village development will see the 12-acre site transformed to create a community of 750 homes, 200,000 sq ft of office space, a primary school and 100-bedroom hotel.
The approval of the neighbourhood’s development will create an anticipated 2,261 jobs and benefit Trafford by an estimated £18m per year during the construction phase.
Once complete, residents within the new homes are estimated to spend £11.2m per year in the local area, while the proposed commercial accommodation is expected to facilitate a GVA of circa £50m per year.
The proposals were submitted for the 12-acre site in February after consultation with local residents and will provide much-needed housing – 15% of which will be designated affordable homes – local amenities and improve community use of the area surrounding the University Academy 92 building.
Part of a wider strategy
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.”
Andrew Western, leader of Trafford Council, said: “This exciting development on the iconic former Kellogg’s site will provide much-needed quality housing, an excellent primary school, offices and a superb hotel.
“It will totally transform the area and create a fantastic place for people who live and work there. This development fully supports the Council’s Corporate priorities of creating quality and affordable housing and successful and thriving places.
“The scheme will also create thousands of jobs and benefit the borough to the tune of £18m and I am delighted that planning permission has been granted.
“We will of course continue to engage with local residents as the development takes shape in the future.
“The Lumina Village project forms part of our overall strategy for the area and we are proud to be bringing this forward in partnership with Bruntwood Works.”
