Cheshire East Council’s cabinet will next week be presented with a report recommending a fresh five-year strategy to revitalise Macclesfield town centre be developed.
The report is authored by the local authority’s executive director of place Frank Jordan and seeks the revocation and replacement of the existing Town Centre Vision document from 2014.
Jordan is of the view that the council needs to flag up to developers and investors that the council is actively seeking partners in a town that offers plentiful opportunity. The report says: “Realistically, the council cannot deliver the kind of uplift in the town centre that residents, members and officers want to see, working alone. Working collaboratively with other organisations, however, it is possible to effect significant positive change.
