There is a lot for local businesses and residents alike to look forward to in Chester, according to the leader of Cheshire West and Cheshire Council Samantha Dixon.
Bdaily reported on her address to guests at a preview event ahead of a delegation from Cheshire travelling to the world’s largest property convention - MIPIM - which will be held in Cannes, Ms Dixon said that a lot of positives had come out of 2016 and this is continuing into 2017.
“We have more fantastic things about to happen. The council has taken forward a £300 million development in Northgate,” she asserted.
Ms Dixon added that House of Fraser was recently announced as one of the anchor tenants for the new retail development.
She also highlighted the opening of the cultural centre Storyhouse, which is scheduled for May this year. The new centre brings together library, theatre and cultural services under one roof.
“It is a really exciting development right at the heart of the city centre and reinforces Chester’s place as an attractive city to visit, live and work in” Ms Dixon stated.
Speaking to the Express recently, Simon Broster, development manager for Whitecroft, explained that there are other reasons for locals to be positive about Chester’s future. His firm is refurbishing the city’s former lead works building to create 65 apartments.
He explained there’s something for everyone in the new development, noting that it’s generating interest among young professionals due to its proximity to the train station and therefore its links to Manchester and Liverpool.
