Consultation opens on Knutsford King Street revamp

Cheshire residents are being asked for their views on renovation plans for King Street in Knutsford, with new roads, pavements and easier pedestrian access proposed.

Cheshire East Council has released a design concept showing how the enhancement works would improve the street with materials used to complement the surrounding architecture and heritage.

The changes would improve access for people whose mobility is impaired by making the street easier to use. The council said the improvements would seek to retain as much on-street parking as possible.

The council will be holding engagement events at the Curzon Cinema on Wednesday 3 December, 4pm to 8pm and Saturday 6 December, 10am to 4pm. Visitors will be able to look at designs, material finishes, and speak to the project team.

The design concept will be on show at an exhibition in Knutsford Library from 29 November to 13 December.

Cllr Michael Jones, leader of Cheshire East Council, said: "Your views are very important to us. We would like to know what you think of the proposals and to hear your opinions on the materials that could be used.

"The shops and businesses on King Street are a great asset to Cheshire East and the street merits and deserves enhancement works. We want to create a space which will be enjoyed by Knutsford residents while also attracting visitors and enabling businesses in the locality to thrive."

Nice to see Council Cash being spent on the posh parts of the district. What about helping the less well-off in the west end of Crewe???

As someone who works for a retail business on Princess Street, it would be great if Cheshire East could also consider us. We have always felt that we are the poor relation to King St.
