A new plan for Urmston town centre which will future proof the town as a successful, sustainable and dynamic ‘place’ over the next 15 years is being prepared. Trafford Council has launched a consultation into the plan which intends to reinforce Urmston as a unique destination for residents, businesses and visitors alike.

The first public consultation event will be held on Thursday 21 March from 3pm to 7pm at Urmston Library. The in-person drop-in event will be your chance to let the Council know what you like and dislike about Urmston, and what you think could be improved.

The event is an opportunity for the Council and their appointed consultants to gather ideas from the local community, which can then inform the new Urmston Plan. Trafford Council has appointed AEW Architects to lead on the preparation of Urmston Plan and they will be supported by Avison Young, Vectos and CW Studios in creating the vision and masterplan for the area.

Representatives from the Council and consultant teams will be at the consultation event to answer any queries members of the public may have and listen to your views and opinions about the future of Urmston.

Cllr Liz Patel, Trafford Council’s Executive Member for Economy and Regeneration said: “It is important that local residents and businesses engage as we develop new plans for Urmston Town Centre. We want to ensure that a positive vision for Urmston is created that works for the community and businesses.

“Trafford Council is committed to improving all of our town centres including Urmston. The Plan will set a framework for Urmston town centre to meet the needs of residents and businesses now and in the future, and will form the basis to be able to apply for funding when it becomes available.”

The event will be followed by an online consultation early May 2024. View further information on the Urmston Plan.

The Urmston Plan is being developed with funding from the UK Government through the UK Shared Prosperity Fund.
