Public inquiry begins into Northwich roundabout proposals

A public inquiry into proposed improvements to a major Northwich roundabout begins next Wednesday (December 17).

The inquiry will consider plans by Cheshire West and Chester Council to increase the size of the Leicester Street roundabout to cope with future levels of traffic.

The scheme, which is designed to work hand in hand with the wide-scale regeneration of the town, includes the installation of a number of pedestrian crossings and extensive nearby parking.

The inquiry begins at 10am at the Council’s offices at Wyvern House, Winsford. It is expected to last two days.

An independent inspector will hear representations and consider evidence in support and in opposition to the proposals.
