Kirkby town centre

With more than 41,000 residents living in the immediate area Kirkby town centre is a busy retail centre with ambitious plans for further growth in the coming years. A new development, anchored by a Morrisons superstore supported by other new retailers including Home Bargains and KFC.

Having already benefitted from £100 million public sector investment into a new health centre, bus station, library, gallery, new market, public realm and public art the town is set to be further transformed. Alongside considerable retail growth, plans for a new leisure scheme in the town are also being developed which would include a cinema with opportunities for bars/restaurants from 4,550 sq ft to 5,700 sq ft.

It is estimated that the construction will bring a £16m boost to the local economy and once completed, the retail scheme will provide approximately 360 new jobs.

A number of key sites in and around the town centre have been made available for mixed used developments ranging from 0.3 acres to 3 acres, with a further 31 acres of land available for residential development.
