Create Developments has secured planning consent to build new £48m Hampton by Hilton Hotel in Trafford, Greater Manchester, UK.

Sister company Create Construction, which will offer the construction expertise for the property, will begin work in the third quarter of this year.

To be built adjacent to Trafford Park’s 1,330 businesses and the Trafford Centre, the new seven-storey hotel will feature 147-bedrooms, fitness suite, a bar, restaurant and bookable, flexible meeting rooms for use by businesses and the public.

Create Developments stated that the designs have been tweaked based on the feedback from the initial planning application, which was rejected by Trafford Council.

The council commended Create’s redesign of the building following an online public consultation. It involved reducing height and increasing car parking and external landscaping.

Create Developments CEO Paul Mathison said: “Our first Hampton by Hilton hotel development in Blackpool has been so successful, that we are now planning an extension to double its footprint.

“This new development project in Trafford comes at an exciting period of growth, when Manchester is experiencing a phenomenal construction boom.

“The approval of the new plans will also help to protect and create new construction jobs and apprenticeships, as well as deliver over 40 new hospitality jobs for local people.”

Construction works will take about 75 weeks to complete.
