Barons Quay:

Northwich’s Barons Quay will be turned into a thriving retail and leisure quarter. It would see the creation of more than 300,000 sq ft of shopping space, together with a cinema, restaurants, cafés, new public realm spaces and parking for almost 1200 vehicles. The development is estimated to create up to 1,500 jobs.

WORK started on the long-awaited Barons Quay development on Monday, November 17, when builders move on site.

The first phase of the Northwich in Cheshire regeneration scheme, which includes an Odeon cinema, Asda supermarket, shops and restaurants, its set to be completed in two years’ time.

Build contractor Balfour Beatty will be working with Cheshire West and Chester Council (CWAC) on alternative parking arrangements to minimise disruption for shoppers and traders.

Clr Stuart Parker, CWAC’s executive member for culture and economy, said: “The sheer scale of the Barons Quay redevelopment means that some disruption is unavoidable.

“However, I would like to reassure residents and traders that we are working closely with our contractors Balfour Beatty to ensure we minimise inconvenience wherever we can and to maintain as much parking as possible.

The second phase of work – a concurrent build of further shops and residential units – is scheduled for completion in 2017.

Clr Paul Dolan said: “I am sure local people will be delighted to see work finally beginning on the long-awaited regeneration of Northwich town centre.

“I have long maintained that it is important for residents and traders to know that all efforts will be made to minimise disruption in the town centre, including the provision of alternative, if temporary, parking provision.

“This, including good signage, is particularly important both in the run-up to the busy shopping period around Christmas and the commencement of the works in the New Year.”
