Trafford Wharfside

Master Plan


The development of the Trafford Wharfside Area has been a long-standing regeneration priority for Trafford Council. Its strategic location across the Manchester Ship Canal Salford provides an opportunity that can act as a catalyst for the regeneration of the Trafford Park area.


The area benefits from a range of unique opportunities which make it attractive and suitable for long-term redevelopment, including; its strategic location in the north of the Borough, with great accessibility to Manchester City Centre, Salford Quays, Manchester Airport and from the residential suburbs of the wider Trafford area.
