THESE CGI images reveal how an important area of Altrincham town centre would be transformed by an ambitious development on the site of Regent Road car park.

The planned scheme will see apartments, ground floor commercial space and a 300-space four-storey car park built on the current car park area.

The Hale-based developer behind the scheme, Citybranch, believes it will address a lack of parking in Altrincham with 150 additional spaces provided, create a much-needed green space in the town centre, as well as invigorate George Street, Regent Road and Lloyd Square.

The scheme would also include a landscaped garden area with seating.

Citybranch hosted a display of its plans at Altrincham Town hall on November 24 and 25.

It is planned to be called Chapel Square, in recognition of the fact that it is on the site of Chapel Street, which was dubbed 'the bravest little street in England' after 161 men from just 60 homes in the street served to the First World War, with 29 killed in action.

Citybranch director Adam Gross believes the scheme will help to boost Altrincham's regeneration.

He said: "This will bring a much needed increase in car parking numbers to that end of the town centre.

"It will upgrade George Street as there will be more footfall through there.

"The new Chapel Square we are introducing and greenery and seating areas will bring additional landscaping to the town centre.

"It will also bring more residential accommodation and living to the town centre.

"This will make a positive impact to the continued regeneration of the town centre."

The scheme is planned for completion by the end of 2019.
