For new scheme

Macclesfield Express - - TOWN CENTRE REDEVELOPMENT -

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.
