Trafford Council Consultations

Housing Allocations Policy Consultation

Trafford Council’s Housing Allocation Policy was last reviewed in March 2013 and due to the changes to homelessness legislation through the new Homelessness Reduction Act 2017 (HRA), a further review is required.

Civic Quarter Masterplan

Take 120 acres of land, an iconic Town Hall building, a world class sporting venue, a new ground-breaking higher education institution, and you have all the makings of living, breathing Civic Quarter for everyone – a shared public space that is a pleasure to spend time in, whether you live, work or play here.

Please help us create a vision for the Trafford Civic Quarter that is right for everyone in Trafford – and right for you.

The Refreshed Stretford Masterplan

The ‘Refreshed Stretford Masterplan’ contains proposals for ways in which we think we could revitalise the town, placing Stretford on the map, attracting investment and making it a great place to live, work and play for everyone. You can view information on the proposals on the The Refreshed Stretford Masterplan webpage

Council Tax Support (CTS) Consultation 2019

The Council is consulting with the public and all other stakeholders on changes to the scheme to increase support to low income families through:

(b) removing the weekly non-dependant deduction where the adult is 18-24 years old and in receipt of benefits/out of work/on apprenticeships

(c) Treating a Universal Credit (UC) notification from the Department of Work and Pensions (DWP) as a claim for CTS
