The Chester Northgate development scheme aims to restore Chester’s place as one of the top 50 UK shopping and leisure destinations by delivering:
- A department store, along with a mix of large and small shops
- A multi-screen cinema
- Cafes, bars and restaurants
A new, reinvigorated market hall is at the centre of the plans, and is scheduled to open in 2019. It will provide improved visibility, accessibility and facilities for the traders, as well as greater choice and quality for the customer.
WMC were invited to manage the trader consultation and application process, auditing the existing market stalls and recommending a revised trader mix strategy. We have since been appointed for a further three years, to manage the actual trader move and the establishment of an exciting new market for Chester.
