Merseyway- Adlington Walk Proposal

Closed 17 Jun 2019

Opened 20 May 2019

Feedback Updated 24 Dec 2019

We Asked

Merseyway shopping Centre is currently moving forward with its redevelopment, with Addlington Walk being the first refurbishment to go ahead.

We asked for the public’s views on how best to reconfigure and rebrand the walkway as well as amenity and welfare facilities in the Town Centre.

Proposed facilities include a soft play space, new seating, buggy stores, high grade toilets, parent and child facilities and a multi faith prayer room.

You Said

A total of 134 people completed the consultation during the public event.

It was found that the main reason the public visit Merseyway is for shopping, followed by eating and drinking and leisure activities.

Toilet facilities were highlighted within the report to be a high importance, with 100 out of the 134 participants using them; most people were happy with the quality and cleanliness of the toilets, however some said they could be better.

We Did

As part of the council’s commitment to consultation, the proposals have been subject to discussions with key stakeholders, including tenants of the Shopping Centre, Council Planning Officers, the Merseyway Management Company, and members of the wider local community who use the Centre.

The public consultation process is considered to have been effective, accountable, robust and transparent and this is reflected on the submitted Full Planning Application.  Whilst it is unlikely that any development scheme will satisfy every stakeholder; we are satisfied that the applicant has considered those issues raised during pre-application discussions and the consultation period, they are seeing to mitigate issues of concern wherever possible.

Overview

Plans to redevelop Merseyway Shopping Centre are moving forward with the announcement of two public events to look at the first stage of the centre’s redevelopment -  the refurbishment of Adlington Walk. Adlington Walk is a covered area of the centre that links off the main mall to Chestergate and the Old Town.

We would welcome your views on the proposals which include reconfiguring and rebranding Adlington Walk to create ‘best in class’ community amenity and welfare facilities for the Town Centre, located in the heart of Merseyway.

Proposed facilities include a soft play space, new seating, buggy stores, high grade toilets, parent and child facilities and a multi faith prayer room.
