Our proposals aim to revitalise Altrincham’s town centre offer by creating a mix of uses which will complement the existing retail and leisure, by bringing more people and more activity to the town. 

Retail will always be at the heart of Stamford Quarter, but retailing is changing rapidly. We now have large empty units in Rackhams, Debenhams and Sunningdale House. We would like to repurpose these large empty buildings to provide smaller shops, apartments, more office space, bars and restaurants – all designed to bring further vibrancy to the town centre.

By increasing the number of residents living centrally, we will create a community of town centre users who can live, shop, work and play in Stamford Quarter

Our proposals focus on:

  • Reinvigorated retail and leisure offer
  • More town centre living – providing 157 new homes
  • More commercial office space to bring more workers into the town centre
  • Improving the quality of streets and spaces, including much more greenery
  • Improving the connections across town, including pedestrian links
  • Delivering important environmental sustainability improvements


Delivering more homes will help secure successful, sustainable and healthy communities. In addition it will increase footfall, create a night-time economy outside of the normal office workers hours and
improve the sense of place and community.


Anchored by a fully let Station house, current indicators suggest an undersupply of workspace within a wider eco-system on offer in the area ranging from coworking to SME offer building to larger scale businesses within Station House.


The transformation of the high street and Stamford Square will help to forge a community feeling and give prospective and existing residents, workers, retailers, consumers and investors a sense of belonging. 


Altrincham Interchange is less than a minute’s walk away, meaning that Stamford Quarter is well-connected by bus, train and Metrolink to Greater Manchester and beyond.


Sustainability is at the heart of these proposals, which seek to maximise the benefit of the town centre location, next to excellent public transport links.
