About Chester Northgate

Chester Northgate is a major repurposing scheme in the heart of this highly attractive, historic and archeologically sensitive city.  Encompassing the sites of the Forum Shopping Centre, the former bus station and 3 semi redundant office buildings the vision is to deliver a phased, mixed use and comprehensive redevelopment of this run-down portion of the city to support the long-term sustainability and vitality of the city.

As development managers for the project we have assisted the Council in, obtaining a major hybrid planning consent in late 2016,  securing the necessary CPO, RCO and Market powers from the Secretary of State following a public inquiry in 2018 and securing numerous pre-lets including Picturehouse Cinemas.

The first phase of the scheme, representing a £70million public investment, started on site in 2020 and is due to complete in mid 2022.
