Public's chance to see Chester Business Quarter plan


Staff reporter (Chester First)

A DROP-IN session to give people more information about the Chester Central Business Quarter will take place next week.

The One City Plan drop-in session will take place on Tuesday, February 11, to inform people about the development of a business quarter in the east of the city.

The One City Plan is a 15-year strategy to guide the future economic regeneration of Chester, which will co-ordinate and drive a programme of public and private investment and development activity into Chester city centre. The session on February 11 takes place at the Palatine Room in Chester Town Hall from 11.30am to 1pm and 4.30pm to 6.30pm.

Over the next 18 months, the area to the east of the Railway Station in Chester, will start to be transformed as the first phase of the Central Business Quarter is delivered.

Cheshire West and Chester Council and Chester Renaissance are working in partnership with the developers of each of these schemes. Members of the public are invited to this drop-in session to be updated on progress.

The first phase includes:
o New Waitrose store on the former Boughton Retail Park site.

o Building 1, City Place – the first six-storey office building.

o Re-development of the Shot Tower and former Leadworks site.

o New pedestrian and cycle canal link bridge.

o Relocation of the rail car park.

o New public spaces linking with the railway station.

Members of the Project Team and Chester Renaissance will be on hand. The next sessions is on Tuesday, March 11, and will feature the events programme, followed by the CH1 Business Improvement District at the session on Tuesday, April 8.
