Chester Leadworks development (consideration by CWaC Strategic Planning Committee)
We are very disappointed to report that CWaC Strategic Planning Committee approved this application after only minor changes by the developer. Much of the ‘internationally significant’ (EH evaluation) leadworks will now be demolished and be replaced by crude, grey, metal-clad apartments.

We are pleased to hear that CWaC Strategic Planning Committee rejected this proposal on 24 January 2013.
Chester Leadworks development
We are pleased to report that councillors on CWaC Planning Committee shared the views expressed by this Society, the Civic Trust and local residents, and that in the face of their criticisms the applications to demolish large parts of the Leadworks and redevelop the site were withdrawn. We hope that new proposals will be brought forward that are worthy of this sensitively positioned site and of the iconic Shot Tower that means so much to many Cestrians.
