St Helens Council buys Church Square

It will help to enable the delivery of plans outlined in the ‘St Helens: Transforming our Town’ vision document and council leader Barrie Grunewald said: “We are committed to investing in our borough, in a prudent way, to both increase our income streams and to help bring forward our town centre regeneration plans. By taking control of Church Square we can now properly plan for new town centre development.”
