Macclesfield Public realm

2nd Dec 2021

The Kilkern Labour team have displayed their talents to the full in Macclesfield where a £1.6 million project to revitalise and transform Macclesfield town centre began in Spring 2021.

Kilkern Labour specialists were brought in by lead contractor Eurovia to provide support with the laying of the distinctive block pavers at the Castle Street Public Realm Enhancement scheme. The work was awarded by Cheshire East Council as part of the Macclesfield town centre strategic regeneration framework.

It has seen a range of improvements to the hard landscape including better and safer access for pedestrians thanks to road widening, new street furniture and improved lighting. A tree planting programme will bring new greenery to the street scene.

One of the most striking elements of the project is the inclusion of extracts of the poem ‘A Love Letter to Macc’ on bespoke kerbstones. Written by Jacqui Wood, artistic director of the community arts organisation ARC (Arts for Recovery), it is compiled from words written by Macclesfield residents to celebrate everything they love about the town.
Sean Gallagher, Kilkern general manager, believes the Castle Street works will help drive forward the council’s strategic vision for Macclesfield.
“The council has set out to create a first class environment that celebrates Macclesfield’s quirkiness and encourages investment,” he said.
“We are very pleased the team has been able to play a part. They have done an excellent job and I think the results speak for themselves.”
