As part of the Greater Manchester Rail Stations Alliance, partners Network Rail, Transport for Greater Manchester, Northern, TransPennine Express and LCR are developing a programme to reinvigorate and bring into use station rooms and buildings across Greater Manchester. In collaboration with GMCVO we are inviting expressions of interest from community organisations, social enterprise groups or charities who may be interested in the use of any of the following buildings.

The locations are: Altrincham, Broadbottom, Heaton Chapel and Trafford Park. You can find out more about each of the buildings in the following links:

The proposal is for all locations to be fitted out to a core and shell model, making good walls, ceiling and other useable space in advance of any potential use. This will mean that core services (water, drainage, electricity, etc) will be fitted in each location, and the spaces will be a ‘blank canvas’ for each organisation.

We invite correspondence from any organisation with a proposal for use of the respective buildings. Any initial correspondence should include an overview of your organisation, relationship to the local area, your proposal for preferred use of the space and potential financial contribution towards fitout, rents, fees, etc.

Please contact Gary Millar at to discuss potential use of any of the buildings.

We would be grateful to receive all expressions of interest by Friday 9th April 2021.
