James Whittaker, Development Director at Peel Land & Property, said, “We have been working on the vision and masterplan for Trafford Waters for over 15 years.
“It will be an exemplar, sustainable development that will create a space for a new community to live, work and play. The strong links with the intu Trafford Centre and Trafford Leisure Village and unrivalled transport connections, including the Trafford Park Metrolink extension, will make Trafford Waters the place to be.”
