Transforming our town

Article date - 18 September 2017

We all want St Helens Town Centre to be a success, so we’ve developed a strategy together with our partners, to ensure our town transforms and grows into one that can rival the best and instil pride among local people.

Our strategy is highly ambitious. If all the proposals set out in the documents below were to be delivered, it would cost in the region of £300 million to achieve. This money would be realised through a combination of public and private funding streams.

There can be no denying that this is a substantial amount of money, and comes at a time when St Helens Council, like many others across the country, has to make changes to services in light of the significant cuts made to our budget by the Government.

However, we feel that in order to best serve local people and the borough, we need to invest some of the money we do have and work together with private investors to fund the town centre’s transformation.

But we can’t do this alone. We want to hear the views of residents, businesses and our partners about our long term plans for the future.

Share your comments and feedback by Friday 27 October.
