Peel L&P’s Trafford Waters Residential and Care Scheme development to create a diverse and sustainable community
James Whittaker, executive director of Development at Peel L&P, emphasised the vision of creating an inclusive community at Trafford Waters. The development aims to provide diverse housing options. It will also have affordable and build-to-rent homes, open market homes, elderly living accommodations, and specialist care homes.
Whittaker stated, “There will be something for everyone. Furthermore, Trafford Waters will be an exemplar in creating a sustainable mixed-tenure community.”
Trafford Waters is part of Peel L&P’s extensive waterfront regeneration portfolio, encompassing seven schemes across England and Scotland. Over the next 20 to 25 years, these projects aim to deliver 30,000 homes, approximately 10 million square feet of commercial space, and around 160 acres of public realm. The development aligns with Peel L&P’s commitment to transforming underutilised waterfront areas into vibrant and thriving communities.
