Trafford Labour Group has spearheaded bold plans that will improve facilities for three of the borough’s much-loved services.
Blueprints tabled at the meeting of Executive on Monday include relocating Trafford Music Service (TMS) from the Claremont Centre to Stretford Library meaning the library will move to Stretford Mall.
In addition, the Trafford Home Based Treatment Team can also move from its Chapel Road site and be rehoused to a new base yet to be decided.
The strategic plans include making improvements to the Stretford Library building in order for the TMS to continue its fantastic work with the borough’s schoolchildren.
The authority also has ambitions to possibly redevelop the Claremont Centre and Chapel Road sites in a bid to deliver new affordable homes.
Cllr James Wright, Executive Member for Housing and Regeneration, said: “These bold and strategic plans are proof that this Labour-led council is delivering on its pledge to improve services across the borough.
“When the former Tory administration was in power it left a trail of derelict buildings, underfunded services with no vision the address the borough’s housing crises in its wake.
“Trafford Labour Group has been constantly and steadfastly making positive changes and improvements to the lives of the residents it serves.
“I fully support all the recommendations in the report and look forward to seeing all the new and fantastic opportunities that they will provide.”
In addition, the housing scheme could potentially deliver more affordable homes with the possibly of providing more social rent homes for local residents.
Further details in the report does say there will also be formal public consolation on the plans.
