Cheshire West and Chester Council buys district centre for £19.75m
Cheshire West and Chester Council has acquired Winsford Cross shopping centre from Winsford Cross Developments for £19.75m. The 220,000-sq ft centre is anchored by Argos, Asda, B&M, Boots, DW Sports and Wilko
In 2016, the Council announced ambitious plans for Winsford Town Park and High Street, Winsford Industrial Estate and new housing developments. The council will immediately set to work on the town centre, carrying out much needed maintenance and repair and make some minor alterations that will improve the overall look and feel of the centre.
Cabinet Member for Economic Development and Infrastructure, cllr Brian Clarke, said: “The Council owns several sites within the town centre however the one missing piece of the jigsaw was the shopping centre. Winsford is a town on the up and by purchasing the shopping centre and the land around it we are unlocking the opportunity for a more comprehensive development of the town centre – one that matches our aspirations for the whole of Winsford.”
