Planners to discuss Memorial Court plans this week
THE full proposal for Northwich Memorial Court will go before planners in Chester on Thursday.
Cheshire West and Chester Council’s strategic planning committee is expected to approve the plans for the complex, which is expected to include a 25-metre six-lane swimming pool, flume, learner pool, spa, 80-station gym and a fitness studio.
The facility will also feature a multi-use performance and events hall and a cafe with a terrace overlooking the river.
There are also plans for a pedestrian plaza and memorial garden near to the river.
Clr Stuart Parker, CWAC’s executive member for culture and recreation, said: “As well as providing Northwich with a first-class leisure and culture venue, this much-anticipated new facility will represent a milestone in the town’s regeneration.
“Subject to planning approval, the Memorial Court development will transform a prime, derelict town centre site and open up an important link to the riverside.”
CWAC hopes to deliver the new facilities by the end of 2014.
The strategic planning committee will meet at CWAC’s Chester HQ at 4pm.
