Stadium Quarter is a £190 million regeneration scheme to revitalise a 36.43 Ha (90 acre) to the north of the town centre.
The project will connect the bus interchange with the Warrington Wolves’ Halliwell Jones Stadium and create a new, vibrant mixed-use development comprising educational, business, leisure and housing uses.
A phased programme of development over the next decade will create up to 1,000 construction jobs and nearly 4000 new permanent jobs when fully completed in 2024.
Phase one of the project commenced in 2014 with the commencement of the construction of an £8.5 million business incubator. The construction of which has been assisted by a £1.5 million ERDF grant. The facility will open in June 2015.
Construction of a £10 million University Technical College by University of Chester is anticipated to commence in Summer 2015 with the facility opening in September 2016.
