Plans for the transformation of Chester's Northgate go on display
4 March 2016The latest plans for Chester’s £300 million Northgate development can be seen at the Forum Shopping Centre 17 – 19 March.
The proposals for the new retail, leisure and residential development will be on display at a three day public exhibition in The Forum shopping centre, next to the Town Hall. Over the three days, the project team will be on hand to discuss this major investment in Chester with as many residents and businesses as possible and hear what they think about the Northgate regeneration proposals.
As well as new shopping (including a department store), a multi-screen cinema, cafés and restaurants, the development will deliver an improved local market, new homes above some of the shops and car parking.
The ‘Northgate Consultation Shop’ will be open as follows:
Councillor Samantha Dixon, Leader of Cheshire West and Chester Council and City ward member, said: “Over 500 people visited the exhibition held in December and the responses carefully considered. This is another opportunity to talk to members of the project team and have your say on the most significant capital development in Chester for decades.
“The Chester Northgate project will transform the city centre, creating over 1,000 new jobs, increasing tourism and driving economic growth.”
“Research by international consultancy WYG has estimated that, by 2018, Chester will need to add almost 400,000 square feet of retail capacity to meet the anticipated levels of demand from population growth, continuing economic recovery and high levels of tourism.”
If people have any questions about the proposals or if they would like to register their interest in being kept informed about the Northgate development, they can do so by emailing: firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling: 0344 225 0003.
