The High street needs diversified uses and more footfall.

Many people remember Kirkgate Centre as a lively centre of many different activities.

Kirkgate - a 30,000sq ft building in centre of Poulton Street - can be converted to provide 20 apartments and retain retail on the ground floor.

With the nature of retail changing we are proposing to team up with an affordable housing developer to convert the upper floors to apartments and the ground floor to retail, leisure and a community space with a banking facility, and wellbeing and health activities.

The basement car parking will be available as public car park and the yard above will be an amenity space for the apartments.
