RivingtonHark as Asset Managers of Shopping City (Runcorn) on behalf of the Receivers worked closely and very collaboratively with Halton Borough Council over 2 years to help develop and evolve the asset into a mixed use town centre. They did so by engaging with the Council and our local partners, listening to the views of all stakeholders, including the public and trying to find solutions to make it work.
