Chester Northgate – new shopping and leisure in the heart of Chester

The Chester Northgate project will transform the northwest quarter of Chester City Centre with new shopping, leisure and residential development.

Chester Northgate is not a new shopping centre; it is a development of open streets, parades and plazas that will integrate seamlessly with the surrounding parts of Chester City Centre.

  • A six-screen cinema – Picturehouse
  • Cafés, bars and restaurants
  • A new, reinvigorated market hall
  • New parking
  • New jobs

The Northgate display is open at the Forum Shopping Centre:

  • Monday: 9am to 12noon
  • Wednesday: 9am to 12noon
  • Friday: 1pm to 5pm
  • Saturday: 9am to 12noon

Chester Growth Partnership

Chester Growth Partnership, along with key partners, will deliver a programme of improvements in Chester as part of the One City Plan, the 15 year strategy which guides the future economic regeneration of Chester.


In response to the feedback we have received, we have added a new page to answer some of the most frequently asked questions.

We are keen to hear a wide range of local views on this vital investment which will shape the centre of the city for years ahead.

Cllr Sam Dixon

I would encourage local people to get involved and contribute positively to the discussion about the masterplan proposals.
