The Stretford Masterplan addresses the problems faced by High Streets and town centres around the UK with a strategy that puts people at the heart of the town, with new places to play, work, shop and live.
The masterplan vision is for a vibrant mixed-use town centre anchored around a sequence of new public spaces. The proposal will diversify the current retail, leisure and residential offer by re-invigorating the high street and delivering up to 800 new homes.
Stretford has long been car-dominated. Our plans aim to re-connect Stretford through the redevelopment of Stretford Mall and Lacy Street, reinstating historic routes through the centre, integrating residents, parks, public transport and the canal with the existing shopping centre for a safer, cleaner and greener Stretford.
By working closely with the community, the plans have developed to stitch the mall and the town centre back into its surroundings through a series of people-centred interventions. This masterplan aims to re-imagine Stretford as a place for people, creating a sustainable town centre with a rich variety of uses and services.
The Stretford King Street proposals are one of the projects to receive funding from the Government’s £830m Future High Streets Fund.
The plans will reinstate the historic King Street as a revitalised high street, creating people-friendly spaces and new pedestrian routes into and around the town centre, to enhance the flow of footfall around the area. King Street will attract independent businesses, establish a covered market hall, and include green spaces for the community to come together.
The existing multi-storey car park will be transformed to make it light, convenient and secure, and to create a new King Street Square to provide outdoor seating areas, market stalls and spaces to host events.
