Car parking at the railway station is becoming increasingly difficult and. with the imminent re-opening of the Halton Curve, the pressure on the car park will only increase.
Cheshire West and Chester Council is therefore keen to seek solutions to maximise the number of available parking places at this car park.
As a minimum, it is planned to surface and properly line the rough ground at the bottom of the car park but this alone will not meet the anticipated demand that has been identified in
the Council’s parking strategy.
It is therefore proposed to demolish the goods shed, shown on the plan below, which would provide up to 60 additional parking spaces and improve the frontage to the station platform
with attractive landscaping.
Cheshire West and Chester Council is keen to understand what local opinion is on this proposal to demolish the goods shed to create additional car parking spaces.
Let it know your thoughts by:
Friday, 13 July 2018.
Due to the short timescales concerning the Halton Curve, Cheshire West and Chester Council may need to submit a provisional planning application for demolition before the end of the consultation.
Please be assured that the Council will take into account the outcome of the consultation before deciding whether or not to progress the application. Should the application be progressed there will be a further (statutory) consultation.
