Have your say

There is still time to have your say on proposals to extend Market Walk shopping centre.

Hundreds of people gave their views when the plans were first unveiled, but Chorley Council wants to make sure as many people as possible get involved.

The £10m development, that could create more than 200 jobs, would bring a flagship retailer to the town.

Coun Alistair Bradley,council leader, said: “We’ve been really pleased that so many people want to influence how we develop the shopping centre.

“There was a big flurry of interest when the plans hit the media, but now people have had chance to think about the plans I’d urge them to let us have their comments if they haven’t done so already.”

There are two alternative proposals that would see the development of up to eight new units, over two storeys, on the Clifford Street side of the Flat Iron car park.

In addition, there is an option to demolish the civic offices on Union Street to create additional car parking and possibly one additional leisure unit.

The consultation will end on Sunday, August 10.
