DESCRIPTION

 

Text of Regeneration Masterplan - Town Centre

  • TOWN CENTREMiddleton Grange Shopping Centre dominates the Town Centre. The new owners are keen to invest in improvements to the Centre and to attract new retailers. There is potential for the redevelopment of part of the Centre to introduce new modern units.

    Shop units facing on to Victory Square could also be opened up removing the blank wall and improving its external appearance. This would add activity to the Square whilst respecting its memorial status.

    A key project is the relocation of leisure facilities from Mill House to the centre of Town adjacent to Middleton Grange (on the car park next to the Market Hall). This will create brand new facilities close to public transport and ample car parking and encourage linked trips to the shops which will help improve the Shopping Centre and attract retailers. It will also provide modern community and leisure facilities which will be more energy efficient and more cost effective to run.

    Proposals would also seek to improve the physical shopping environment of York Road by removing guard rails along the Road and improving the public realm.
