A selection of new homes in Cheshire will be built as part of a new vision for Ellesmere Port's waterfront, according to plans unveiled by Peel Land and Property; the Waterways Trust; and Cheshire West and Chester Council (CWCC).

The consortium is working alongside the Ellesmere Port Development Board to regenerate the area and to promote it as a destination to buy a new home, as well as visit.

In addition to the construction of new homes, plans for the waterfront include improving the existing Docks Conservation Area, including the National Waterways Museum, and open public space. An ecology park and a promenade will also form part of the project.

Herbert Manley, CWCC executive member for prosperity Herbert, commented: "These are exciting times for Ellesmere Port and the waterfront project really has the potential to make a huge difference to the town.

"Following the launch of the vision, detailed planning and partnership working will continue to move forward the delivery of this programme."

Peel director of land and planning Louise Morrissey, added: "These important proposals offer real potential to promote and assist with regeneration within Ellesmere Port."
