Expansion of Halewood District Centre – your views on investment

by Jonathan Kearney

Back in November and December last year, residents, businesses and visitors to Halewood were asked to share their views on the future development of Halewood District Centre and the potential expansion of the local retail offer.

More than 360 residents shared their views at a number of engagement sessions and via an online survey.

More than 70% of people who took part in the consultation supported the proposed extension of the retail offer.

They also shared views on what matters to them most in their local area including local green spaces, children’s play areas, activities for young people and easy access to local facilities.

All of the views shared will be used by the Council to help develop their plans for the town which were recently given a boost when Halewood was allocated £15.3 million as a result of the Council’s Levelling Up bid to Government.

The Council will be talking to residents again as detailed plans are developed.

Cllr Tony Brennan, Cabinet Member for Regeneration and Economic Development, said: “These are really exciting times for Halewood and I want to thank everyone who took part in the consultation. We’ve been really pleased with the response from residents, businesses and visitors. This insight will really help us to inform the masterplan we develop for Halewood and ensure we deliver the improvements that will support the growth of the town.”
