    Regenerating former gasworks
    across the North West

National Grid Property is committed to regenerating our portfolio of brownfield sites across the North West of England. Working with partners, we want to unlock the potential of our diverse range of sites.

We have a challenging ambition to provide hundreds of new homes, as well as deliver economic and environmental regeneration. To achieve this, we would like to work with partners from the public and private sectors including housing associations, local authorities and developers.

If you are interested in partnering with us to develop our land, or want to know more about our plans, please complete the enquiry form below.

About Us

National Grid Property own land that is no longer needed for National Grid’s operations. Our portfolio is made up predominantly of former gasworks and gas holder sites which were used to generate, store and distribute gas to towns and cities across Great Britain.

Traditionally we have sold our land on the open market, but we now want to be part of the regeneration story. We want to work with others to create new homes and new businesses – places people want to live and work.

Our sites

We own a portfolio of around 40 sites across the North West, which offer exciting opportunities for a range of different types of development.

Some of our sites have great potential to deliver a broad range of much needed housing, and we are especially interested in working with others to realise what these sites can deliver.
