WINSFORD’S new town centre is another step closer to becoming a reality.

While internal works on the building began back in May, construction workers have now moved on to the demolition phase, making way for several new units which will open in phases, with the first scheduled for spring 2024.

Alongside retail spaces which which will see new business come to the town, including B&M and Costa Coffee, there will also be a community hub, public green spaces, and a 168-space car park which will also have dedicated cycle storage.

The project is expected to be complete by the end of 2024.

Cheshire West & Chester Council councillor, Nathan Pardoe, who is the cabinet member for inclusive economy, regeneration and digital transformation, said: "We've all seen Kier construction workers on-site for the past few months.

"They've been busy doing internal work to buildings and it's exciting that they are now at the demolition stage.

"New units will be opening in stages. Costa Coffee will be the first to open in spring 2024, and other works will follow, and all construction is due to be completed by the end of 2024.

“The first phase includes retail spaces, a community hub, a civic square, and a public events space, and will be so much better than the town centre we have today.

"This is a Cheshire West & Chester Council project, made possible by the decisions of successive Labour administrations to bring the town centre into public ownership in 2018 and invest in the town.

“The Labour administration and I will continue to back Winsford, and deliver on our promises of a town centre that the people of Winsford can be proud of."
