Residents asked views on town as part of 'Future Stretford' study

A ‘Future Stretford’ study is being carried out to help ensure the town is a viable, sustainable, dynamic place that meets the current and future needs of residents and businesses. 

The study, by consultancy Arup on behalf of Trafford Council, will build on the previous consultations and significant investment into Stretford town centre and looks further afield to reach the wider residential area, including Gorse Hill, Longford, Lostock, Humphrey Park, Stretford Meadows and Turn Moss. 

A public consultation has been launched seeking views on the present situation and is asking what a future Stretford and neighbouring communities should look like. Residents and businesses are invited to participate in the consultation which ends on Wednesday 31 January 2024. Complete the survey online.

Cllr Liz Patel, Trafford Council’s Executive Member for Economy and Regeneration, said: “This ‘Future Stretford’ study has been launched to look in detail at the opportunities available to make Stretford an even more sustainable and dynamic place in which to live. We are already transforming Stretford town centre with our work on the Mall and surrounding area and we’re now looking to build on this.

“I would encourage as many residents and businesses as possible to take part in the consultation – your views are extremely important to us.”
