Planning permission for Therme Manchester was unanimously approved in March 2020. Since then, we have had the opportunity to make some exciting new updates to the design, including improved sustainability and accessibility.
We are submitting our new planning application this summer and would love to hear your thoughts on the new proposals. On this page, you will find a summary of the proposed changes to Therme Manchester with a questionnaire to share your feedback.
Therme Manchester design as approved in March 2020.
Therme Manchester’s new design with improved connection to the canal and entrances.
The Therme Manchester site is in the Trafford City area, opposite Trafford Centre and Trafford Palazzo, where LEGOLAND Discovery Centre and SEA LIFE Manchester are located.
Access via public transport will be encouraged via the new Barton Dock Road tram station that is directly outside. The site will also be accessible via existing bus routes serving Trafford City.
Walking and cycling to Therme is a healthy way to arrive, whether from other attractions in Trafford City, along the canal or from other parts of the local area.
Ample parking will be provided on-site and nearby road connections include the M60, M62, M602 and A56.
Therme Manchester will have minimal impact on total traffic volumes.
There are 5 hotels nearby within the Trafford City estate.
