Trafford Council adopted the Core Strategy in January 2012 and Carrington has been identified as a key strategic location with an opportunity to reduce the isolation of Carrington and Partington by creating a new mixed-use sustainable community on large tracts of former industrial brown-field land. The Core Strategy considers the location able to deliver: 1,560 residential units, 75 hectares of employment land, new road infrastructure, improvement to existing public transport infrastructure, community facilities and green infrastructure.
The Core Strategy also highlights Partington itself and a priority regeneration area. According to the Trafford Composite Local Plan Policies Map, the property is within the following allocations of the Trafford Revised UDP (Adopted June 2006):
Notwithstanding this, the New Carrington GMSF Masterplan (September 2020), was produced by Trafford Council and AECOM to support the delivery of the New Carrington Strategic Site allocation in the draft Greater Manchester’s Plan for Homes, Jobs, and the Environment (the GMSF). In this Masterplan document, the property is proposed for residential development on the Indicative Masterplan (see extract below).
The property also falls within Flood Zone 1 (an area with a low probability of flooding).
