For new scheme
cinema with high quality public realm. We look forward to sharing our plans for this prominent town centre site over the coming months. ● Coun Adam Schofield, of Macclesfield Town Council: Macclesfield is in desperate need of this regeneration. Nick Hynes and his team put together a brilliant panel. I feel that this community involvement, with so many passionate local voices, has given Macclesfield the perfect leisure-led development. ● Coun Nick Mannion, who represents Macclesfield West on Cheshire East Council: We really are in the ‘last chance saloon’ as far as breathing life back into our town centre is concerned, so we need to make sure this scheme is of the highest quality and is delivered as soon as possible. ● Coun Lesley Smetham, Gawsworth ward for CEC: It looks like a great scheme and smaller, as everyone said they wanted. The development will bring back the out of town shoppers that Macclesfield should have and deserves. It won’t take trade from local retailers. ● Coun Gareth Jones, of Macclesfield Town Council, said: “It is a fantastic opportunity for Macclesfield. Nick Hynes and his team have worked hard to put together a scheme that will work for Macclesfield.
The scheme will encourage more investment into the town centre. It has my total support.
