Castle Street public realm works

Local people have shown a strong desire for town centre environmental improvements and Cheshire East Council is committed to investing in a package of public realm works in the Primary Shopping Area of Macclesfield as part of its wider regeneration programme.

We have worked closely with BDP Ltd, ARUP Ltd and artist Michael Pinsky to develop concept designs for this area:

It must be noted that these are early aspirational designs only which do not currently have identified funding.

The concept design work recommended Castle Street as the first priority for enhancement works. This locality offers significant scope for enhancement, complements the ongoing work to improve the Grosvenor Centre, enhances a key link between Mill Street and the proposed ASK Leisure development and, could make the purchase and reuse of Craven House a more attractive proposition.

Cheshire East Council are about to start work on developing detailed designs for a £1 million plus package of improvement works on Castle Street.
