This first part of a 25-year strategic masterplan for the town centre and waterfront area will help the Council realise its ambitious plans for the regeneration of Bridge Street and Time Square. The first phase comprises a new 25,500 sq ft retail shell which will become the temporary home for Warrington’s award-winning market whilst a permanent market hall is being constructed. The temporary market shell will then be converted for retail use. Construction of this first phase is now under way. Planning permission for a multi-storey car park, offering space for around 1,200 vehicles across eight-levels, has been secured. The overall scheme will provide 40,000 sq ft of retail, 92,000 sq ft of leisure (including a cinema and seven family restaurants), a 42,000 sq ft indoor market hall, a 100,000 sq ft Council office building, the car park and a new public square. When open in 2019 the development will include a new state-of-the-art, 13 screen, 2,500 seat multiplex cinema operated by Cineworld. The project will also see the development of several restaurants, a new market hall, new council offices, a new 1300 space multi-storey car park and a new civic square. The new temporary market was opened on 2 September 2017 by the Lord Mayor and will be home for the market traders until work is completed on the second phase of development. The second phase will see the demolition of the current market hall and the build of the new permanent £10 million, 31,150 sq. ft. market market hall as well as the construction of contemporary new offices for the council.
