Industrial space lined up in Carrington

Plans have been filed for 57,000 sq ft in small units north of Manchester Road.

Adjacent to the Carrington Power Station site, the application covers three parcels of brownfield land which Lordstones Developments is looking to bring forward.

Each of three sites are vacant. The scheme designed by architect Paddock Johnson outlines plans for 15 units, breaking down as:

  • Site A: four units totalling 6,800 sq ft
  • Site B: nine units totalling 24,360 sq ft
  • Site C: two units totalling 26,488 sq ft.

The buildings will be set out in terraces, and will be accompanied by a total of 109 parking spaces.

Lordstones, which is a subsidiary of Carrington Power Station developer Carlton Power, has also submitted plans for a green energy hydrogen electrolyser on a nearby site, which according to the design & access statement has the backing of Greater Manchester Combined Authority.

Combined with a cryogenic energy storage system consented for another plot, and a battery energy storage scheme Carlton has consent for, the electrolyser project makes up the Trafford Low Energy Park.

Trafford Council’s planning reference for the industrial application is 108188/FUL/22.
