Astmoor businesses are invited by Halton Borough Council to a consultation event on Monday 18 March on the next steps for the regeneration of Astmoor Industrial Estate, Runcorn.

It is a drop-in exhibition on draft proposals for the five-year Masterplan and Delivery Strategy that will guide the regeneration of Astmoor. The event is at The Brindley Theatre, Runcorn, 3pm-7pm.

Astmoor has been identified as one of eight locations in Halton where the Mersey Gateway bridge and the reconfigured road network have the potential to open up land, stimulate new development and reposition an area for growth.

Any vision and objectives for the regeneration of Astmoor will seek to help existing businesses prosper and stimulate job creation, as well as attracting new investment. 

The draft Masterplan will identify the strengths and weaknesses of the estate and consider how to attract new development and investment into Astmoor, including what happens to the land being handed back to Council now that the Mersey Gateway Bridge is operational.  It will also seek to identify potential infrastructure improvements, such as car parking, landscaping, street lighting and signage.

Businesses are invited to come along and meet the consortium working up the proposals led by town planners, urban designers and architects BDP, supported by commercial property consultancy JLL, Curtin’s highway engineers, and social value specialists EKOSGEN.

Members of the project team and council officers will be on hand to answer your questions and there will also be opportunities for you to view the plans and leave your comments on feedback forms.

No appointment necessary, businesses are welcome to come along at any time between 3pm and 7pm.
