£200M city centre waterfront regeneration would feature affordable housing (UK)

A regeneration package worth £200 million has been announced for Winsford, England by the Cheshire West and Chester Council (CWaC).

The Winsford Whole Place Approach, went before CWaC’s cabinet on July 20, 2016.

It focuses on regenerating the town centre and waterfront recreation area, improving education and employment opportunities for residents and providing early intervention and support for the vulnerable.

Affordable housing plays a key role in the regeneration programme, with the Verdin Exchange and Phoenix Depot identified as CWaC-owned sites where more than 300 homes could be developed – half of which would be Starter Homes to encourage young people and families to move to Winsford.

The council says it is also working with the leasehold owner of Winsford Cross Shopping Centre to revitalise the complex through larger and more flexible shop space, an improved market and increased community uses.
