A scheme to regenerate Warrington town centre has been given the green light by Warrington Borough Council.
Plans submitted by Muse Developments as part of its redevelopment scheme were passed by the Town Planning department . The plans involve demolishing buildings on Bridge Street and Dolmans Lane to make room for a new, modern structure.
It will form part of the Time Square development, a £107 million scheme intended to give a much-needed facelift to the heart of Warrington, Warrington Worldwide reports.
Council leader Terry O’Neill is highly enthusiastic about the town’s major refurbishments:
“The Time Square development will rejuvenate our retail, leisure and cultural offer. It will create jobs and attract new businesses. Best of all, it will further boost Warrington’s profile and confidence as a great place to live, work and visit,” he said.
Due to be completed in 2019, the complex will be able to accommodate restaurants, cafés and retail outlets, as well as a 13-screen, 2,500-seat cinema, an indoor market and a multi-storey car park.
Time Square is a neighbouring development to “The Link”, for which Emerald Bay have been appointed as the main contractor.
