Masterplan put forward for Earlestown and St Helens regeneration schemes

What has been described as the vision for once-in-a-generation transformation of Earlestown and St Helens town centres is closer to becoming reality as councillors have signed off on the Masterplan Development Frameworks.

St Helens Borough Council and its partner, regeneration experts The English Cities Fund (ECF), launched draft Masterplan Development Frameworks for the regeneration of the two town centres in November last year.

Welcoming the decision, Councillor Richard McCauley, Cabinet Member for Regeneration and Planning, said: “This is a huge step forward for our borough and as a Cabinet we are delighted that the plans have had the backing from the public. It shows that businesses, residents and visitors are ready for us to get to work in transforming Earlestown and St Helens town centres.”

The first phase in St Helens town centre will include a new bus station, a new market hall, office space, housing, an international brand hotel and extensive public realm improvements.

The first phase in Earlestown town centre will include a partially covered market area, flexible events space and landscape improvements.
