Green Light for Winsford Town Centre!

The construction for Winsford Town Centre’s redevelopment will begin very soon, after the approval of additional Council funding.

Further funding of £500,000 has been allocated to the project, ensuring that the project can be delivered despite increasingly challenging market conditions which are affecting projects across the country.

The Council-led redevelopment scheme will provide a new space for stores in Winsford town centre and create new public spaces for exciting events and visiting attractions. There is also a continued commitment to the town’s cultural programme, building on the success of Winsford Creates and Cine-window.

With the additional funding now agreed, and site preparation works already underway, the Council is preparing to sign contracts with its preferred contractor Kier, so the work can start in the next few weeks, with completion forecasted for late 2024.

The project represents investment of £22.18 million on top of the £21m the Council invested in acquiring the centre in 2018. This investment is partly funded from a £9.98 million grant from the Future High Street Fund allocated for the project.

Well known brands B&M and Costa have already signed leases to be apart of the new development, and ongoing leases with many of the existing tenants have been secured too.

It’s a really important project for the residents and visitors of Winsford, and a relief for many that the regeneration is about to become a reality.

The redevelopment will unlock the economic potential of Winsford town centre and provide opportunities for new and existing businesses by creating new spaces for events and visiting attractions that will bring footfall into the town.
