Brexit ‘Won’t Damage Cheshire Economy’

Any businesses in Chester that have been worrying about their prospects following the vote to leave the EU last summer have been reassured that the economic outlook for the region is bright.

Speaking to the Knutsford Guardian, chair of the Chester Growth Partnership Guy Butler explained that the county’s economy is supported by the food industry and energy sector, both of which he describes as “resilient to change”.

Other business leaders in the local community echoed his sentiment, including Tom Anwyl, director of Anwyl Homes, who said the main focus for the region was currently improving transport links rather than worrying about potential job losses as a result of Brexit.

Better rail and road links is something that the Chester Growth Partnership is focusing on. Chair of the organisation’s infrastructure group Sally Pilott told the newspaper that the group is hoping to deliver a number of improvements for Cheshire and North Wales.

“We are trying to secure £1 billion of rail improvements which would deliver 70,000 new jobs over 20 years for the North Wales and Cheshire regional economy,” she revealed.

Among the proposals is for the line between Crewe and North Wales to be electrified, which would enable the HS2 project to extend all the way to Bangor and Holyhead.

Earlier this month, Samantha Dixon, leader of Cheshire West and Cheshire Council, said that 2016 was a positive year for the region and highlighted projects such as the Northgate development in Chester as a sign that more “fantastic things” will happen throughout 2017.
