Victoria Shopping Park, at the top of the town centre, will be home to a new Tesco store with over 600 parking spaces, a retail terrace featuring other big names like Costa Coffee and Phones 4 U, and a new community facility to replace the Aquarius ballroom. New bus facilities are already in place on Victoria Street, as well as a new Army Cadet drill hall.
Works over the next few weeks will make sure that everything is ready for the opening of the new Tesco store on 26th November. There will be an increase of works vehicles and contractors in the town centre to achieve this, which may lead to some disruption.
The area next to the Rugeley Road car park at the Chase Gateway development will be used for contractors’ vehicles, so there will be extra vehicle movement between the Chase Gateway site and Victoria Shopping Park.
Cllr Diane Todd, Cannock Chase Council Town Centre Regeneration Leader, said: “I’d like to thank again businesses, residents and shoppers in Hednesford for their patience and support over the last 18 months while the regeneration work which has transformed the town centre has been carried out.
“Works over the next few weeks will make sure that Victoria Shopping Park is completed, ready for the opening of the new Tesco store and I’d like to apologise for any inconvenience that may be caused.”
The £50 million transformation of Hednesford Town Centre is being delivered by St. Modwen, the UK’s leading regeneration specialist. Mark Watkins, Development Surveyor at St. Modwen, added: “We would like to thank Hednesford people for their support as we carry out the final stages of work on Victoria Shopping Park.
“Boasting a range of leading retailers, it is set to provide a thriving, high quality shopping experience for the town.”
