PJ Livesey the developers for Chorlton Precinct have written to CCLT to ask us to publicise details of their next round of public consultation. You may have already had a newsletter though your door or picked up one locally. This gives details of the developers’ proposals including consultation drop-in events being held at a vacant unit in the precinct.
Their website has also been updated with details of the drop ins and how to feed back any comments.
Although CCLT don’t have a formal role in the precinct plans, we wish to continue staying involved to ensure the ideas in the Chorlton Vision are embraced and CCLT plans for the Picture House are taken into account in their precinct plans.
In particular, we have been keen to impress upon the developers, the idea of closing Nicolas Road (at least as a temporary measure) to explore the concept of a new public square at the heart of the district centre and to provide a larger pedestrianised zone that connects the proposed development with the Picture House, library, school and the health centre.
If you agree, it would be helpful to refer to this idea in any individual responses.
