Market Walk, Chorley Town Centre

Planning Consultancy

Town centre regeneration by expanding user experience, including new leisure facilities, office space and improved access and public realm works.

The £13m extension brings a multiplex cinema and new food and beverage units into the town centre. The extension has allowed bespoke large retail units to be designed for specific retailers bringing new footfall to the centre.

Following the council’s acquisition of the Market Walk shopping centre in 2013, we have worked closely with them and the appointed consultants to produce a scheme that will have a hugely significant and positive impact on the town centre. This scheme will provide a fantastic boost for the town’s night time economy and create new destination retail space.

The scheme links seamlessly with the existing town centre to encourage transfer of visitors via the improved public real and adjacent car parking.

Having dealt with several members of the AEW team throughout the length of our project we have found them to work extremely well with both the client team and wider project team. They are very knowledgeable of other schemes with similarities to ours and offer up advice based on that experience as well as adapting to new ideas and constraints placed on them by us as client.
