Green light for £130m Wigan shopping centre redevelopment

A joint venture partnership between north west developer Cityheart and Beijing Construction Engineering Group International has got the planning thumbs up to start the £130m redevelopment of the Galleries Shopping Centre in Wigan.

BCEGI will lead the construction programme for the new Galleries 25 scheme, which will see the existing 440,000 sq ft shopping centre transformed into a multi-media centre for the town by 2025.

First construction is now set to start early next year.

This will provide a six-screen cinema, music and E-sports venue, 10 lane bowling alley and indoor mini golf course. A purpose-built pavilion off Market Street will provide new food and drink establishments and evening entertainment.

The proposals also include a new hotel and 464 homes ranging from one-bedroom flats to three-bedroom town houses and retirement living.

Nearly half the site will be redeveloped with flats and town houses
