As the second phase of the Handforth Dean development in Cheshire gets under way, Next are the first retailer to take their spot at the retail park creating 200 hundred jobs at their new fashion and home superstore.

The former airparks space totalling 16 acres will be redeveloped into a parade of retail and restaurant units, and will be a significant addition to the existing Tesco and Marks and Spencer’s complex.

Construction for phase one will begin next month and should be finished in time for summer 2016, with the remaining phases looking at completion within the next three years.

The development once finished will create some 1200 new jobs and provide an out of town shopping facility for the area

Cllr Jamie Macrae, chairman of Engine of the North, said:  “This is the best possible use of this land and we are delighted that it will make such a significant contribution to the economic and commercial prosperity of the Borough.

“The Handforth Dean development has been a tremendous success for Cheshire East and has proved to be extremely popular with our residents and the residents of other boroughs, such as Stockport and Manchester.

“I am also pleased that it will be a local business, CPG, that will carry forward this scheme, which will create in the order of 1,040 jobs, when completed.”
