Planning consultation

Current Consultation – Residential Development at the former Trafford Magistrates Court, Sale

Please give us your feedback

Thank you for taking the time to visit and contribute to our virtual consultation about Trafford Council and Seddon Developments Limited’s proposals for the redevelopment of the former Trafford Magistrates Court in Sale for new housing. We very much regret that due to the circumstances surrounding the Covid-19 global pandemic, a face-to-face public consultation event cannot go ahead. Your views are still very important to us, therefore this website has been set up to provide information about the scheme proposals.

We are seeking views from the local community on the proposals for 86 new homes comprising:

  • 48 townhouses and 38 apartments in a range of types and sizes (1, 2, 3 and 4 bed homes)
  • A level of affordable housing compliant with the Council’s policy;
  • A new vehicular access to the site from York Road to the west;
  • A ‘Pocket Park’ between the apartment blocks to serve as a green space for the new residents as well as the local community and to encourage linkages to Sale town centre.

We have uploaded the consultation boards (which can be viewed by clicking on the ‘Presentation’ button to the right of this page) which provide more information about the site, design development, current proposals and key considerations. Physical copies of the consultation boards will also be available to view in the windows of Sale Library, 2 Tatton Road, M33 7EB between 6 - 20 November 2020. However, due to the latest government guidelines, we would advise viewing the proposals and providing feedback online, if possible.

We have also prepared a ‘Frequency Asked Questions’ document to assist in your understanding of the proposals which can be found at the ‘FAQs’ tab to the right of this page.

Your views are important to help us develop our final detailed scheme and are very much appreciated. Please use the survey available on the ‘Feedback’ button to the right of this page, or alternatively send your feedback to:

If for any reason you are unable to use this website to submit your feedback but still wish to comment, please contact Avison Young who can advise further on how you can comment on the proposals.

To have your say on the draft proposals, please provide your feedback by Friday 20th November 2020.

There will be a further opportunity to comment on the final proposals through Trafford Council’s own consultation, once the planning application has been submitted.
