The developer has completed consultation on plans for Lumina Village, where it will supply the residential part of a wider £208 million mixed-use project.

Last December, a joint venture between Bruntwood Works and Trafford Council appointed Glenbrook to supply the residential element of the project.

The joint venture had been given several consent to redevelop the former 12-acre Kellogg’s site in 2020.

Glenbrook plans to deliver 600 apartments and 53 townhouses on the Talbot Road site.

Glenbrook presented its proposals to the public during a consultation that ran from March 8-18.

The plans, designed by Sheppard Robson, consist of six blocks ranging from three to twenty floors. 440 build-to-rent units and 195 owner-occupied homes will be delivered across the blocks.

The homes will be a mix of one, two, three and four-room homes. The majority, 84%, will have one and two bedrooms, while 13% will have three bedrooms. The other 3% have four.

A total of 5,300 m² of retail space will be delivered on the ground floor, as well as 200 parking spaces.

Shannon Conway, director at Glenbrook commented: “We have worked with Trafford Council and Bruntwood to create an inclusive plan that benefits the environment it is in.

“The housing supply is a core part of Lumina Village and we propose to provide at least 15% affordable housing to provide much needed housing to this area of ​​Trafford.”

Sheppard Robson is the architect and Avison Young is the planning consultant.

The scheme could generate around £1.2 million in council tax for Trafford Council annually.

In addition to housing, Bruntwood Works and Trafford Council have permission to deliver up to 200,000 square feet of offices, a primary school and a 100-bedroom hotel.

Kellogg’s former headquarters, which closed in 2018 after the company moved to MediaCityUK, is located opposite Old Trafford Cricket Ground and is part of the wider Trafford Council master plan, which includes another JV project – the redevelopment from Stretford Mall.
